You might know him as one-half of the British Invasion duo Chad & Jeremy, or as a venerated actor, with over 50 years of credits ranging from the West End to Broadway, from film to television, including “Downton Abbey”. You might not know, however, that Jeremy Clyde is also a respected songwriter and solo performer, who is celebrating the release of his newest album, “The Bottom Drawer Sessions No. 4,” the latest in a series of adult contemporary albums he has released over the last four years. Clyde will perform at The Palms Playhouse on Thursday, December 13, as part of his latest US tour, highlighting songs from all four volumes of “The Bottom Drawer Sessions”.
During the 1960s, Clyde was one-half of the folk duo Chad & Jeremy, who delighted American audiences as part of the British invasion. Singles such as “Yesterday’s Gone”, “A Summer Song”, and “Willow Weep for Me” earned them a spot on music charts and in the hearts of fans in the US. AllMusic guide says, “Stuart and Clyde were gifted songwriters who could work outside the standard pop framework of the day, [producing] a sound that’s both rich and intimate.” Great Britain’s venerable newspaper The Guardian says, “Their sunny, gently psychedelic final album was genuinely amazing.”
The songwriting gift never left Jeremy Clyde, through decades of off and on touring with Chad & Jeremy and acting for British television, film, and stage. With the witty, soulful, charming new songs on “The Bottom Drawer Sessions No. 4,” Jeremy Clyde continues his musical journey.
