Clarence Tilton is an alt-country/country-rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. Led by the brothers Weber, the group combines the essential elements of tubes, steel, tears, and brawn—a suitable pallet for their lyrics and themes steeped in a rich moody cauldron of Midwestern nerd. They are adamant about taking their time, with an obvious love for the sound of pedal steel and traditional country music. But they also will surprise you with a loud raucous stomp, lyrics spit out with virulence, coughed out of machines with a pugilist’s ink. Craig Meier (Sixty Watt Saloon, Hong Jyn Corporation, Pendrakes) on bass; Jarron Wayne Storm (Willard’s Band, Poncho and the Contraband) on drums; Paul Novak (Pendrakes) on acoustic guitar. The Weber brothers (The Get, GroundTyrants) are free to switch between pedal steel and six string, exchange leads on telecasters, and harmonize at will. CT is new traditionalism with influences stretched throughout a century of American music.
