Get familiar with the artist below.


BIO

Mac Nova, an 80's baby was born on Thanksgiving Day in Detroit Michigan. Academics were a main focus of his upbringing; he developed a love for words and those gifted in its usage at a young age. His mother "Penny" didn't approve of most rap, so it wasn't allowed in house until his teen years. In the meantime, every morning and on the weekends, she made it her aim to fill his ears with exceptional music by artists such as Anita Baker, The Gap Band, Bootsy Collins and a slew of soulful legend. During study periods, she would play classical music for him and his two younger sisters. Aptly, a first CD purchase was Beethoven's 9th Symphony. Mac Nova’s mother was determined to allow her children to have a well-rounded library of varied genres and compilations. 


Following grade school, Nova attended MLK Jr. Sr. High school where hip hop was introduced to him in full for the first time and he was immediately hooked. Guided by his older cousin Marcell, he absorbed it all. From hometown heroes like Eminem and J. Dilla, to underground icons such as Immortal Technique and The Cunnilinguists. It was during this time period, Mac Nova discovered he had a unique and skillful talent to freestyle. He participated in a few unofficial friendly battles here and there, but he was mostly limited to friendly fun competitions between friend and family. Taking on the moniker "Mac" as a play on his last name, he never considered being an MC, even after graduating from high school.


Leaving his beloved state of Michigan to pursue higher education, he sought work to support himself. He worked as a ‘jack of all trades’, looking for an occupation to love. Eventually, he found a job that fed his passion in healthcare - specializing in the care of patients with Developmental Disabilities. After a health scare, and a series of unfortunate events, Mac found himself working with his father in Toledo, Ohio - starting over. In what seemed like a low point in his life, he found that freestyling was still his biggest stress reliever. Overhearing him rap in the work garage, his coworker, ‘Big Steve’, convinced him to try his talents at the studio. Introduced Mac to the Toledo Legend Cj Mack. Right there in Glass City, a SuperNova was born.......


Managed by business extraordinaire, Debra Sue-CEO, Glass City Talent 419, Mac Nova has found a place where he has flourished, and shared his extraordinary gifts with the world. This SuperNova is on his way to greatness, but stays humble….stating, “I’m just happy to be here.”

[BLACK HISTORY MONTH] On the LAST DAY of BLACK HISTORY MONTH we honor the great CLAYTON SAVAGE | www.ClaytonSavage.com

 

          On the last day of Black History Month 2021, Blacktopia would like to honor the great recording artist, songwriter and composer CLAYTON SAVAGE!

 

Clayton Savage (born September 18, 1964) is a multi-talented American singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, and producer.

Biography

Early life

Clayton Savage was born on September 18, 1964 in Chesapeake, Virginia to Earl and Annie Mae Peel. Clayton Savage began singing shortly after he began speaking. More importantly, he began plucking melodies and harmonies from songs he heard instantly and began to play them on any instrument that was within his reach from a very early age.

Fast forward to 14-year old Clayton going down the “wrong” path and his sister’s then boyfriend Kenneth Gardner putting a guitar in Clayton’s hand and asking if he wanted to learn to play. Clayton amazingly started to play chords and melodies and no one believed he’d never had lessons. Best of all, he began to write his own songs rather than simply mimic the hits of that time, songs influenced by many greats including
Cameo, Switch, Hall & Oates, Prince, and The Commodores, just to name a few. He began singing in an inspired falsetto and developed his style of songwriting and storytelling.

Clayton and Kenneth, who was two years his senior, put together their first band called Nitro. They played the local and military base clubs and developed quite a following. By the time Clayton was 16, he’d recorded in the area’s largest studios and developed the reputation as a talented perfectionist when it came to his instant recollection of every nuance of each instrumentalist’s performance.

Career


In an effort to prove himself to his fellow band mates he produced and performed most of the instruments on his debut cassette, simply titled Clayton Savage. He then flew to
New York and New Jersey one week after not receiving return calls from the labels he’d sent his demos to and eventually ended up at the legendary Sugar Hill Records in Englewood, NJ.

Clayton moved in as studio secessionist and producer and was introduced to the lineup, which included the Grandmaster
Melle Mel of the GM Flash Camp. Aside from writing and recording with many of the legends, including Kool Moe Dee, The Sugarhill Gang and The Sequence, it was a cut from Clayton’s solo album titled “WE DON"T WORK FOR FREE” that caught Sylvia Robinson’s ear and she suggested that Mele Mel add a rap to the song. This led to the song moving from Clayton’s solo album and to his becoming a member of the Furious Five. This also marks the first top 20 R&B rap song.

Clayton toured Europe and abroad with the Furious Five, developing a fan base of his own as he had solos within their performances and performed many vocals and instruments on the rap group’s then current release. He’s even featured in two of their videos, including the single “
Pump Me Up”, a Treble Funk remake.

In spite of his success with the Furious Five, Clayton was a soloist and dedicated to releasing his own album. Finding no support at Sugar Hill, he left and was signed by
Gerry Griffith (who discovered Whitney Houston) to Capitol Manhattan Records and was the youngest male at the time to have been given the reigns of producer independence.

Clayton was the first male featured on the cover of
Black Hair Magazine and can also be seen on the cover of Aretha Franklin’s Freeway of Love album. His single “Palm of Her Hand” was the opening song for BET’s historic Video Soul television show, which showcased the new generation of artists, prior to Jesse Johnson’s theme.

A failed marketing attempt by
Manhattan Records discouraged the young Savage and he left NY for Minnesota. He performed with The Westside, the area’s top band at the time, recorded an album for the group and left after 5 years to return home to Virginia.  Clayton still has ties with The Westside and they are all still performing together.

Clayton had been working for years in Northern VA as a Computer Programmer and Graphic Artist when his friend Albert Parker suggested that they get some equipment together just to have some fun. This awakened the dormant Savage and a wealth of material began to flow. Even though he hadn’t touched an instrument for more than 5 years, he not only started to play, he began recording and constructing with a seamless gap from his previous years.

The savage one returns with his own R&B, Soulful, and funky mixture. The vocals are tight and his music takes you back to a time when the airwaves were dominated by unique sounding male vocalists.

With artistic control still paramount, he now records on his own label:
Red K Records. He is currently working on several new projects.

Clayton Savage, the producer, performer, and song writer has an original style that combines his industry veteran skills with the latest recording technologies to produce tracks that are sure to keep dance floors filled and have the whole room singing.

 

Clayton Savage is currently releasing new music through his Record Label Red K Records. You can speak of NuMan and A.D.H.D He has another song being released in March 5th titled "Catch Ya Breath". Clayton Savage and The Westside are also currently working on some tracks to be released this year.
