Michael J. Clouse

Michael J. Clouse (sometimes credited as Michael J. Clouse III), an American record producer and songwriter was born in Boston, Massachusetts in the mid-1950s.

He graduated from Framingham North High School in Framingham, Massachusetts and received a degree from the American College of Greece while playing basketball in Europe. This afforded him the opportunity while traveling, to be exposed to many different styles of music.

Upon returning to the States in the mid-80's, Clouse began his music career in Los Angeles, working with the likes of the late Jeff Buckley, Marco Mendoza (Ted Nugent, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), Nicky Hopkins (The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who), Shawn Lee (musician) (Monkeyboy), Jamie Carter (Jon Butcher (band)), and Carl Young (Michael Franti & Spearhead (band)), to name a few.

In the early-90's, Clouse started working in film and television as a music supervisor and songwriter.

In the mid-90's, Clouse relocated to NYC and opened a recording studio on W.26th St., where he continued his work with the late Jeff Buckley, and numerous young artists, as well as continuing his work in film.

In the late 90's - early 2000's, Clouse was enlisted by the Jeff Buckley Estate to be involved in many of Buckley's posthumous releases beginning with Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk, collaborating with Chris Cornell, Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert and various band members.

In addition to producing artists, Clouse has written numerous songs for film and television.

Michael Clouse presently resides in New Albany, Ohio, with his wife, Terri, daughter Madee and son Mick, a founding member of the teen Pop-Rock band, New Hollow.
