Clayton Doley

Clayton Doley is Australia's finest Hammond organist and is quickly gaining international recognition as one of the top new players on the world stage. The 2010 release of 'Tension' by Clayton Doley's Organ Donors received glowing reviews and has cast Clayton as a rising star in the blues and jazz idiom. Drawn to the Hammond B3 organ from a very early age, Clayton is a master of the instrument. He has dedicated his life to exploring the full potential of the B3 and utilising it's dynamics and depth of tone. Not just an organist, Clayton has a deep and rich and soulful singing voice and his bluesy songwriting combines modern structure and harmony with thoughtful and sensitive lyrics.

In Australia Clayton has had a long history as a television musical director for the now legendary shows 'Good News Week' and 'The Sideshow'. He has also toured the world over as a sideman with artists such as Eugene 'Hideaway' Bridges (USA), A Camp (Sweden), Silverchair (Australia), The Divinyls (Australia), and Jimmy Barnes (Australia). As a session musician Clayton is in demand and has played on hundreds of albums including ARIA award wining releases.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
