Chris Clark

Christine Elizabeth Clark was born in Santa Cruz County, California and early in life wished to become a blues singer. In 1963 she went to work for Motown Records in Detroit for 2 years before making a demo. Though her talent was undeniable, Chris was a blue-eyed blonde and it is said Motown "didn't know what to do with her", since the label was founded on the strength of black artists like Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Brenda Holloway, Mary Wells, Stevie Wonder, The Supremes and Martha Reeves and the Vandellas.

In 1965, she recorded "Do Right Baby, Do Right" and when the song was released, made history being one of the first white artists to have single record released by Motown Records under their V.I.P. label. An article was written for Ebony Magazine in 1966 about "The Motown Sound" and a photo of Chris appeared in the magazine... a real surprise to many who simply assumed Chris was a black singer. Now compared to Dusty Springfield, her next single was "Loves Gone Bad", written by the legendary team of Holland, Dozier, Holland. The song, powerful and almost raw in its delivery by Motown standards, hit the rhythm and blues charts and became her only large scale hit, reaching #41 on the R & B charts in the U.S. Her album "Soul Sounds" was released in 1967 on the Motown label itself and today is viewed as a rare collectible. She enjoyed 2 more single recordings from that album: "From Head to Toe" and "I Want to Go Back There Again". A new lushly orchestrated ballad "If You Should Walk Away" was recorded, destined to become her next hit single, but was never released as a single. A pop album called "C.C. Rides Again" released on a newly created "rock" Motown label called "Weed", was never promoted and failed to garner much air play. It remains the only album released on that label.

Chris Clark's recordings of the 1960s went on to become bigger hits in Europe over the next decade in underground disco clubs. The "Northern Soul" movement, particularly in England and the Netherlands in the pre=disco 1970s, came to appreciate the lesser known, more "gritty" Motown recordings as opposed to the larger production styled tunes made for "top 40" music radio stations. Chris Clark traveled to Europe to perform in nightclubs, especially in England, and re-established her recordings as a staple in the Northern Soul catalog.

Already familiar with song and story writing, Chris was asked by Motown founder, Berry Gordy, to help develop a screenplay for a Motown feature film called "Lady Sings the Blues" (1972) starring Diana Ross. Co-written with Terence McCloy and Suzanne De Passe, she received an Oscar nomination for the intensely dramatic script.

In 1982 she married Ernest Tidyman, the man who created the character "Shaft" in his novel and screenplay. He also won the Oscar for his screenplay for "The French Connection" (1971). Sadly, after only 2 years of marriage, Tidyman died of a perforated ulcer.

She was hired as Motown's video editor and later served as Vice President of Creative Development for Motown Films in Los Angeles. Over the years Chris made several attempts to produce major projects in Los Angeles before finally moving to Arizona where her hobby of photography developed into a profession. In 1990, she spent 6 weeks in Africa photographing and taking in the people and culture of the continent.

Today, she creates photo montage artwork from the classic Motown acts she took years before, as well as her African-themed works and has them reproduced on canvas. She has had numerous commissions of her works and has enjoyed several one-man shows in recent years and continues with her writing. In 2010, Daeida Magazine did a cover story on Chris. She has since returned to singing and performing and in 2015, she recorded the original song "The Ghosts of San Francisco" for the motion picture "When the World Came to San Francisco," of which the music video was chosen as an "official selection" for the 2016 New York Jazz Film Festival.

He has made numerous other appearances in film,television and commercials and has experience of Stage acting.

Toby Dammit

Originally left on an East Tennessee doorstep to wander the wacky world of Appalachian orphanages, he found the trusting care of the most significant Tympani instructor in the American South. Tutored for ten years as a tympanist, he transformed into a symphonic terror in the Southeastern U.S.A. as a teenager. Mere sight of his arrival at regional percussion competitions left many an ambitious stick-whacker grinding their teeth on the trail back home.

However Toby's duration in the grown-up symphonic world didn't last. He canceled another year of stuffy attitudes and puffy conductors - turning to teenage punk-rock nightlife and local bands. As the Tennessee walls closed in, he realized he'd have to leave, perhaps not to return. By 1986 he'd fled to California to live and work with Greg Ginn, founder of Black Flag and SST Records. His trail led him into the notorious cow punk band Tex and The Horseheads for a year. He fatefully met organist Luther Hawkins and together they performed with Paul Roessler of The Screamers. During this period he also made an album with producer Lou Adler (producer of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", Mamas and Papas, and Cheech and Chong). But his life changed dramatically when Iggy Pop claimed him for his own in 1990.

Iggy showed Mr. Dammit the real ups and downs in the world of show business, as they toured incessantly from 1990 to 1999. Despite seemingly endless international tours and the thousand familiar blurred faces in so many troubled places, life on the road proved Toby a survivor. Gradually, that buried symphonic percussionist raised a muffled head, as film score productions intrigued Toby. In 1997 Johnny Depp invited Toby to accompany him up the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival for the premier of his first feature film "The Brave," which Toby had painstakingly worked on with both Depp and Iggy.

In 1995 Dammit joined the New York band Swans, relocating to New York soon after. As word got around of his symphonic instrument collection, he harnessed a mind-boggling schedule of productions as a sought-after percussionist - notably scoring the short film "Apple Jack" with a handpicked 21-piece orchestra. While working obsessively in France with Iggy, he befriended French producer Bertrand Burgalat, who began inviting him to Paris for productions. Soon came his invitation to record a solo album at Tricatel studios and the official crowning of his name, both which Bertrand owned! New York record store Other Music released the "Top Dollar" sessions on their label Omplatten in 1999. A French connection continued, as Monsignor Dammit toured and recorded with French artists Paul Personne, Stephan Eicher and Keren Ann.

In 2000 he started a record label in Hamburg, Germany called Hit Thing (English translation of "drummer" in German) with Guido Randzio, (who partnered the EuroRalph label with legendary band of mystery The Residents). They've since constructed an odd repertoire, combining renegade lost re-issues and new productions of Toby's. Dammit reunited with lifelong friend Luther Hawkins in Los Angeles to record together. Working alone in Luther's house with Grammy Award winning producer Mark Howard (Lucinda Williams, Tom Waits, Daniel Lanois, Emmylou Harris), they created the mysterious instrumental album called "Karny Sutra". Luther & Toby found warm receptions waiting, as American college radio embraced the odd atmospheres of "Karny Sutra".

Bertrand came to New York City to perform with Toby in 2002. Toby surprised his French producer, as he performed an all-percussion tribute to Tricatel's roster of singers with an all-girl percussion section! Burgalat invited Dammit to become musical director of his prized Tricatel chanteuse April March. Toby redesigned Bertrand's complex studio productions for stage with dynamite New York musicians and they toured Canada, America, Switzerland and France. Bertrand enlisted Toby and his bassist Dana Schechter (of Bee and Flower), forming a trio to debut in Russia in 2003.

Berlin became a new source of inspiration for Dammit, since recording the duet album "Morphosa Harmonia" with another lifelong friend; Bad Seeds drummer, Thomas Wydler. In those pleasurable sessions he met engineer Ingo Krauss, of Conny Plank Studios. In 2004 Dammit brought Schechter's band Bee and Flower to Berlin to produce their second album working with Krauss. Schechter's writing style beckoned a large symphonic setting, and that's exactly what Toby designed. Bee and Flower's relocation to Berlin actually conducted Toby's new future. Inviting many fellow artists from his travels to come to Berlin to work, his own relocation was inevitable.
