Charlottesville Music Showcase presents:
The Clock Reads, hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, is a Jazz-Rock outfit that draws on a diverse range of musical tastes to form their unique sound. Formed in 2013 and fully fledged by 2014, the band is comprised of graduates from the University of Pittsburgh. With roots in jazz, funk, latin, and classic rock, each member of The Clock Reads brings a unique background of influences and tastes, creating a collaboration of avant grooves and improvisational melodies.
