The Commonheart’s lead singer Clinton Clegg proves that religion isn’t the only way to move a spirit. His deeply soulful voice is packed with power and unwavering optimism. There is grit and passion in every verse as his 9-piece band churns out bluesy rock and vintage soul originals.
Popmatters called The Commonheart’s new album, Pressure, “a brilliant ray of light in dark times, one intended to uplift the soul and inspire acts of kindness.” It’s a take that aligns with Clegg’s self-professed intentions. “This band is therapy for me to bring myself back to being a better person,” says Clegg, “and I hope people come along with me.”
