Claytoven Richardson

What a honor to interview Mr. Claytoven Richardson. Before the interview i read over endless articles about Mr.Richardson and what he has gave back to the music industry but most of all where his passion for the art comes from. As busy as he is, Claytoven always makes time for educating others. “I was blessed as a kid,” Claytoven says. “Because of the many teachers who came into my life while still in high school, I got to talk with Duke Ellington and ask questions about his music. I got to perform with Max Roach and Abbey Lincoln.

I feel it is my responsibility to pass on my knowledge to young musicians just as it was passed on to me.” And with that as his mission, Claytoven has stepped into the role of author by taking his years of experience and sharing them in a new book entitled, “The Professional Studio Vocalist”. The goal of the book is to bridge the gap between the academic and professional music worlds by providing aspiring singers with the knowledge necessary to pursue a career as a professional recording vocalist. Currently, Claytoven also teaches this subject and other professional music courses at San Francisco State University, in their Music Recording Industry Department.
