Rock Eupora is a sprightly blend of gritty rock and shimmering pop.
Clayton Waller, the Mississippi music artist known as Rock Eupora, operates in a true DIY fashion, playing every instrument on the albums that he writes and records himself.
Clayton started taking piano lessons at the age of 5. He quickly discovered his love for songwriting and performing and took advantage of nearly every opportunity to play music. In college, he helped form a rock-n-roll power trio called Wolf Cove. Wolf Cove started dissolving as graduation approached, and Waller began writing solo. These songs eventually became Rock Eupora and took form as the first album, Blanks.
Waller recorded the first album at his college house in Starkville, just minutes down the road from small town Eupora. Waller, knowing he would soon make the leap to Nashville, wanted to take a piece of Mississippi with him. He recognized the importance of his surrounding influences and environment, and was ready to rock the boat and shake up the stereotypes associated with Southern music.
While in grad school in Nashville, TN, Waller wrote and recorded Rock Eupora’s second full-length album in his apartment-converted basement. In Soon the Sun Will Come, Waller uses galactic hooks and melodies and a unique blend of gritty rock and shimmering pop to address the power of time, the reality of love, and the importance of faith as he experiences a transitional stage of life. Waller and the Rock Eupora band currently reside in Nashville and frequently tour the Southeast.
