South Carolina Lowcountry native, Clay Rice, an internationally known silhouette artist, is also a song writer and musician. Clay has been described by author Pat Conroy as a “great talent who combines soul and passion”. Silhouette artistry and storytelling have been in his family for more than 80 years. His grandfather, Carew Rice, was described by Poet Carl Sandburg as “America’s Greatest Silhouettist” and traveled worldwide, sharing his mesmerizing cutouts with delighted customers. Songs from the Jon Boat is Clay’s way of putting his story telling talent to music.

The Jon Boat song is a ballad about the relationship between a boat, father, and son.
