Clay Lyons

Born into an artistic family in Madison, Wisconsin, 23-year-old alto saxophonist Clay Lyons has been enthralled by music from a very young age. Lyons began his musical journey by playing the drums as a toddler, and then moved to cello and piano, after which he settled on his instrument of choice, the alto saxophone, at age 12. In high school, with the help of his father and some friends, Lyons discovered the music of Charlie Parker, and soon realized that there was no turning back. Over time and after much practice, he became a prominent player at his high school and the local Madison jazz scene, where he studied with legend Richard Davis. In 2007, Lyons was awarded a full-tuition scholarship to Berklee College of Music, and since then, he has been a busy player at Berklee and elsewhere—Lyons has performed as a sideman and with his own groups in the United States, Hong Kong, and Japan.He is currently pursuing a duel-major degree in jazz composition and woodwind performance at Berklee.
