The most unique and sophisticated voice in contemporary retro soul today. Clayton Doley is a legend of the Australian Blues and Jazz Scene, cutting his teeth with legendary Sydney band, The Mighty Reapers and going on to form his own bands The Hands, The Organ Donors and The Flashy Dash-Backs.
 A master musician, a killer boogie woogie piano player, a super funky Hammond player, and a remarkable singer/songwriter with a passion for creating new works that could have been recorded by the R&B greats from the 50’s and 60’s.
 His current project Clayton Doley’s Bayou Billabong captures the essence of the New Orleans Blues piano tradition while fusing contemporary Australiana and Americana with all the might and power of an 8 piece band.
 Clayton has been invited to play some of the biggest festivals in the world such as Montreal International Jazz Festival, Byron Bay Blues Festival, Toronto Jazz Festival and Tremblant International Blues Festival to name a few.
