Brother Cleve

Keyboard player/DJ/Composer Br. Cleve has been working continually in the music business since the late 1970’s. While playing in bands such as Fox Pass during the initial punk rock era, he acquired the name/character Br. Cleve while doing radio stints for WMBR and WBCN. In the mid-80’s, Cleve joined Slash/Warner Bros recording artists The Del Fuegos as their touring keyboardist, spending 3 years traveling the globe with them (including tours with Tom Petty, INXS, and ZZ Top) After their dissolution, Cleve continued working with a variety of bands, including the reggae group The I-Tones, r&b shouter Barrence Whitfield & The Savages, and C&W honky tonkers The Wheelers & Dealers. In 1994, Cleve began his association with Combustible Edison, the group which spearheaded the international lounge scene. During the period, Cleve became increasingly visible as the genre took off, producing reissues (including acting as a consultant on Capitol’s “Ultra Lounge” series), writing liner notes, penning magazine articles, and working closely with the “godfather” of the scene, Mexican bandleader/arranger Juan Garcia Esquivel. At this time, Cleve began DJ’ing regularly, taking classic lounge as a staring point, alongside funky breakbeats, downtempo, house and disco, latin and Bollywood; he’s spun records in London, San Francisco, Mexico City, New Orleans, New York, Barcelona, Bombay, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam and Moscow. When not playing records, he scores music for clients like HBO/Cinemax, Universal Studios Orlando, Discovery Channel, Cartoon Network, the Texas Rangers and Hormel Foods. He’s currently working on new recordings with the St. Barths based band Dragonfly and
his bossa nova duo Muscovado. His latest album, a compilation titled “Bombay Disco”, is due out in fall 2006.
