A masterful songwriter, Stephen Clair writes tunes that are both deeply personal, yet surprisingly universal..."It’s literate and fun with a funky Americana sound." —Michael Devlin, Music Matters


“Stephen Clair has literary, story-telling songs like Chuck Prophet, Steve Forbert & Alejandro Escovedo.”
—Nan Warshaw, Bloodshot Records

“For fans of literate singer-songwriters who balance the weight of the world with a bit of humor ...”—All Music Guide

“An artist with a singular style and the confidence to conceive it.” —Lee Zimmerman, No Depression

"It takes balls, literally and figuratively, to sing so knowingly about a vasectomy. But in the swaggering, amped-up title track to Love Makes Us Weird, Stephen Clair does just that, turning a four-syllable word into a tight rhyme with the line 'Who are we?' " –Chronogram Magazine
