Fresno bluesman John Clifton has been performing both locally and internationally since the 1980s, and with his new album, “Let Yourself Go” (Rip Cat Records), which released last month, it’s safe to say he and his band (including guitarist Scott Abeta, drummer John Shafer, and his son, bassist Grant Clifton) won’t be slowing down any time soon.
Kings River Life caught up with the award-winning musician for a chat during his current tour in Poland.

Recently I had the chance to see Devan Bolding perform as Cinderella’s Prince and the Wolf in Raisin’ Cain Players production of Into The Woods at the Selma Arts Center. I loved his voice and performance and thought what a fun local actor profile he would make for KRL. I went to check him out and found out that he is also a musician. So I took some time to chat with this talented performer and learn more.

Imagine a nightclub on a Saturday night, packed to the rafters, the click of ice against glass faintly heard beneath the sound of the blues charging the air with its currents.
This is the realm of Fresno blues man A.C. Myles.
