When working in large groups, a clearly stated mission helps align everyone. According to Clinton Clegg, the mission for soulful Pittsburgh octet the Commonheart is two-fold yet simple: “To entertain, and to provide whatever it is that a listener may need at any given time. That’s what I’ve always relied on music for.”

Music has served the singer and songwriter well. His mother’s job playing church organ, third grade cello lessons, and an early fascination with B.B. King nourished his spirit as a boy in Monongahela, PA. Playing school dances in garage bands got him through college, when his CD player shuffled between Dr. Dre, Green Day, and Al Green. 

“Music is a positive force that brings people together,” says Clegg. “It can give you a friend and something worth living for.” It is, quite simply, his life’s foundation. Since forming the Commonheart in 2014, it has given him more strength with each passing year.

With gritty vocals over rock riffs and horns, The Commonheart delivers an emotion-packed, soulful sound that lights up any stage. Frontman Clinton Clegg is a powerhouse who commands full attention with his limitless onstage energy and vocal range. The new album "Grown" is a remarkable display of each member's talent interlacing heavy blues, soul, and gospel influence across trumpet, saxophone, keys, guitar, and singers. The Commonheart's sound is a true testament to the past while completely holding its own as one of today's most promising acts.
