Clay Wheels started in the early nineties in San Jose by Ray Stevens II feeling the need to get some action music going with buds Kal Gettle and Randy Burk. After a few trips to the Northwest and shows in the Bay Area the shape of the group was constantly changing with different drummers (Todd Jackson, Julie Rose) and a fill in studio guitarist (Mike Fox) the core of the group settled when Jonny Manak was added on guitar and Eric Powers stayed put on the drum stool.
Born to Barge was recorded and released as a promo item with the Black Label Jason Adams Punk Point board and the songs were featured on 411 skate videos, skate documentaries, radio ads, etc.
The band played GvR contests for Etnies,skatepark grand openings and rocking shows.
Special guest and legendary pool skater Steve Alba is a friend of the band and plays with them from time to time!
The band is on flow from Emerica/Etnies/Don Brown!!
