Clampitt, Gaddis & Buck are an acoustic five-piece from Portland, Oregon who pay homage to traditional American roots, country, bluegrass, and gospel with their soaring harmonies and stripped-down style. Erik Clampitt and vocalist Marley Gaddis started working together in October of 2002. With Clampitt on guitar and harmonica and Gaddis sharing vocal duties, they took their fragile sound and gimmick-free live show to stages around Portland.
In March of 2003, they expanded their sound by adding Sean "Buck" Burke on upright bass, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, and vocals. CG&B now boast two additional local talents making them a happy family of five: Matthew Stark of Power of County lends his banjo, mandolin, and vocal skills to the group, while Lucas Jones has stepped in for Sean behind the upright bass.
