CLIVE BARRATT
 is an independent artist originally from Blackburn, Lancashire, England, now living near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Recording of his album "WALL OF STORMS" began in 2012; however, a series of misfortunes in the lives of members of Clive's family, the producer's family and the untimely death of the drummer, soon after recording began, resulted in a string of production delays.
WALL of STORMS Clive's new, 12 track debut album, is available on iTunes, CD Baby and most online stores. ​
Most tracks were recorded at MARPOLE RECORDING STUDIO in Langley, British Columbia, by producer Rob Begg, except for some drums which were recorded at The Bathouse Recording Studio in Bath, Ontario by audio engineer Nyles Spencer and at the GBDrums Studio in Kingston, Ontario, produced by drummer Gary Barratt.
Clive wrote the lyrics and music for all songs on the album. Clive sings both lead and background vocals, plays 6 and 12-string acoustic guitars, lead guitar, slide guitar and bass guitar, mandolin, piano, keyboards, harmonica​, and percussion.​ Musicians joining Clive on WALL OF STORMS include Rob Begg​ on lead, rhythm and bass guitars, keyboards and back-up vocals, Bill Patterson on bass guitar & keyboards, Gary Barratt and Ron E. Wells on drums, and the late Rogé​ Belanger on both drums and back-up vocals. Female back-up vocalists include Lisa Adrianne​, Andrea Petersen and Michelle Szulc. Michelle is also the singer of the national anthems at televised NHL hockey games.
The late Rogé​ Belanger plays drums and sings background vocals on "Tonight You're Going Out". Rogé​ spent 15 years touring with Canadian rock icon Randy Bachman, as Bachman's drummer and back-up vocalist. Rogé​'s distinctive harmonies will also be heard on Clive's punchy song "Dance The Night Away".​ Unfortunately, Rogé​​ lost his life to cancer on 27 September 2012. These two songs are his final studio recorded works.

Michelle sings the sultry female vocals on Clive's alternate version of "Dance The Night Away" (track# 11). ​
The album was partially funded by financial contributions of fans and supporters through SELLABAND; a crowd-funding company. specifically focused on promoting artists and their new, original music.
"My objective", Clive says, "was to make an album of lyrically intriguing songs laced with diverse musical influences. I want these songs to be such that fans will still be singing to themselves or humming the melodies long after their stereos, MP3 players or radios have been turned off"
