Duane Cliatt is the embodiment of the American Experience – an honest hardworking man realizing his dream of entertaining others through his stories and message in song. He is unmistakably a son of the south, a student of life… and a musical genius. After years away from his music working on cell towers and driving long-haul trucks…

…I sat down with a guitar, my thoughts and a piece of paper and just poured out the God’s honest truth no matter what it was about. I took those songs and played them to anybody who would listen. I’m talking bars, listening rooms, peoples’ houses, their back yards, wherever… I realized that everyone can sense truth, you know, real and honest truth.

Duane’s message is grounded on a solid foundation of truth. One listen to his quickly rising video release of “1000 miles” (make title link to video) and you know this “one-take” version of his song comes from a real place deep within him. Americana, Country, whatever label one chooses to describe Duane and his music, people always know he is genuine – an artist with a deep well of experience and a profound desire to bring it to others in song. Universal truths resonate with audiences, and Duane writes and sings about universal truths in a way that is authentically him, an honest and engaging way.
