The Road To California/Cyrus Clarke and the Expedition

The second in the California trilogy highlights the roads, highways, and byways in and out of California. This fine recording includes three great California road songs, "Route 66", "Do Re Mi", and Chuck Berry’s rocking chestnut, "The Promised Land." Cyrus also reprises a few of his own classics such as "Springfield Mountain Coalminer" and "Kern County Fandango." Rounding out this beautiful disc are songs by Kate Wolf and the Grateful Dead as well as newer compositions by Clarke. The Expedition is Clarke’s acoustic band and features Jack Joshua on double bass and mandolin wizard, Cache Valley Drifter, and Acousticat alumnus, Mike Mullins.

California Stories/The Cyrus Clarke Band

The first of a trilogy of recordings which depict Clarke’s influences throughout his 35 year career playing, performing, and pioneering California Americana music. This disc features wondrous covers of Kate Wolf’s "Safe At Anchor", "New Speedway Boogie" by the Dead, and Woody Guthrie’s haunting waltz, "Deportee (Plane Wreck At Los Gatos Canyon)". The recording takes the listener through a variety of styles honed by Clarke’s band; a virtual romp through the Golden State featuring Barney Tower on ripping telecaster and Tom Corbett shredding on the mandolin.

Sunrise On The Radio/The Cyrus Clarke Band

A long awaited album from one of California's finest writers. Cyrus has written for Kate Wolf, the Cache Valley Drifters, the Phil Salazar Band, David West, and the Acousticats. He made the jump to his own outfit and the results have produced a contemporary, finely crafted ensemble of songs which include nine originals as well as the vintage Kate Wolf mantra, "Red Tailed Hawk." Clarke's newest group is initialed with a modern approach to an ever-changing suburban folk scene and features a soulful country blend of acoustic guitar, telecaster, mandolin, bass and percussion.
