His music has been heard internationally on radio, in film, and on television (including Dateline NBC and The Kardashians).

He spent a decade as a music director with Emmy-winning theatre company The Second City, entertaining audiences around the globe, from ex-pats in Asia to our troops in Bosnia.  His recording act, The Clayton/Scott Group, was twice named ‘Group of the Year’ at Canada’s Smooth Jazz Awards, and picked up ‘Best Jazz Recording’ at the Canadian Urban Music Awards.

He won three national awards with recording act The Clayton/Scott Group, and his music has been heard internationally on radio, in film, and on television (including Dateline NBC, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and MTV).
