about

The first album done on my land in my studio there. The studio is powered by solar so it's sunlight to music here. I really wanted this record to rock. I'm happy with it.

about

Clay Hawkins Ukiah, California

Blending rapid-fire finger style slide guitar and honest, heartfelt songwriting, Clay Hawkins creates his own unique brand of acoustic rock. Influences like Neil Young, John Fahey, The Black Keys, Nick Cave and even Radiohead melt together behind his well worn yet lush vocal style. The music unfolds naturally, taking the listener on a ride that is both familiar yet entirely original. ... more

Track Name: Say Hello
We trained our eyes up to the skies, gazing ever farther away.
When out of the black, they looked back, and suddenly how everything changed.
We said, "oh my god, I guess that we're not all alone out here in the fray"
Yeah the time has come, they see us as one, and we'd better learn to do the same, yeah we ought to
Say Hello, come on out and say it aint so! Out of the stars they found where we are, gonna tell us what we all really know

We realize as we see through your eyes, nothing down here makes any sense.
Rather than talk, we keep throwing rocks, lobbing them all over the fence.
Till they turn into walls, and deep in us all, well we'd rather tear them down instead.
Cause nobody wins, this human race begins, right exactly where it ends, come on now and
Say Hello, that's the way this goes. Like it or not, it's not like we thought it'd ever happen but now here we go.
Because with out you and I now where are we.
And, you learn down here on earth yeah there's only me.
But, now we realize just what you see.
Mankind as one
Track Name: Titus
So, how to say enough about the gracious man we knew and what he meant to us.
I'm so proud of everyone. Yeah, wear all here for you my friend. We do it out of love.
For that soul, we recognize. So rare, from the air, you come and build a sunrise.
And the way I see it, the way I see it, you're home now. In the garden, can you hear the rain?
Yeah, the way I see it you're sailing an so alive. In our hearts you'll remain.
So, now you're out in front. Well that's nothing new for you my friend, you've only just begun.
And there's no doubt that you're having fun. I'll always have the times we laughed, and now the time has come.
So let me take your hand. For so many miles, you helped me understand.
The way I see it, the way I see it, you're home now.
In the garden, can you hear the rain?
The way I see it, you're sailing and so alive.
In our hearts, you're gonna light the way.
So now the song is sung. I send it of to you my friend, on the setting sun.
The way I see it, you're home now.
In the garden, I can hear the rain?
The way I see it, you're so alive.
In our hearts, you're gonna light the way. In our hearts.
Track Name: Bound To Hit Something
I was bound to hit something.
Yeah, the more I dig
What I found, was everything that you want,
it's often not at all what you thought it is.

I was bound by glory.
I was bound by pride.
Both will keep you searching and nothing's ever certain,
That's about all I know about life.

So, please, won't you leave you're light on.
Please, yeah believe me, I'll be there.

I was bound to get lonely on this road I chose.
I was bound by love and the one I'm thinking of,
yeah, she stole my heart I suppose.

Well you're bound to hear the stories.
Spreading far and wide.
I was bound to get lucky just once in this world or,
I was bound to die trying.

So, please, won't you leave you're light on.
Please yeah believe me, I'll be there.
Track Name: Stone and the Kettle
Well the cracks in my hands, like the cracks in the land,
tell the story of living, you won't understand,
till you've planted your dreams with the woman who stands
by your side.
It's not in the schools, yeah it's taught with the tools,
and the worth of a day is in the work that you do.
Rise with the sun everyday. It's winding it's way through the sky.

When you're living by the stone and the kettle over the fire.
With our bones we settled our homes and together we get by.
And everybody pulls their weight.

It starts with a seed, you raise what you need, and if the rain doesn't come, you've got to believe.
Cause it could come any day and wash you away just as easy.
But when the harvest is good, you've done what you could, it's a gift you've been given, that's understood.
You've got to give it away, cause that's how you're going to keep it.

When you're living by the stone and the kettle over the fire.
With our bones we settled our homes and together we get by.
And everybody pulls their weight.
Track Name: Find Me
Gold lines the hills now, They're singing, gold lines the hills
Gold lines the hills now, they're ringing, gold lines the hills
Going to try my hands, they're reaching now. Going to try my hand.
Go right ahead, I'm reaching out, go right ahead,

Find me. Wherever you are.
From far away you'll find me one day and come back into my arms
I said, find me, wherever you are.
Come a day, you'll call my name, and come back into my heart.

No time to waste on thinking
No time to waste.
Go and find a way to keep dreaming, gonna find a way.
Gonna fly to heaven, yeah sneak in, gonna fly to heaven.
Gonna find my angel, she's singing, gonna find my angel, singing

Find me. Wherever you are.
From far away you'll find me one day and come back into my arms
I said,
Find me, wherever you are.
Come a day, you'll call my name, and come back into my heart.
Track Name: It Was
It was you. All along.
