T Clemente Band released their latest album" Lost In Time", has been touring the Northern California, and has opened up for the amazing Michael Schenker at the Rockbar Theater, San Jose, the great Y & T Band at the Catalyst, Santa Cruz and the late Ronnie Montrose at the Avalon, Santa Clara.
Teaming up again in producing this all original song/music album, consist of the amazing musical talent of Robert Berry's arrangements, keyboards, bass & guitar works with Teddy Clemente's song writing & lead guitar works, heavily influenced by some the great rock artists.

With the awesome drum work by David Lauser and the amazing voice of Amanda Dieck, all together we now have a Vintage Style Rock album.

Teddy Clemente - Immigrated from Cavity City, Philippines in 1981. 5 years later became a US Citizen . Occupation: Process Control & Industrial Automation Engineer / Electrical Contractor. Always enjoy listening to Rock Music because of the US Military Base & Community in Cavite. Deep Purple/Machine Head was my 1st Rock album. I was very impressed with Ritchie Blackmore's guitar works. Then I discovered other great guitar players: Santana, Van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, John Petrucci, Michael Schenker, Ronnie Montrose, Joe Satriani + more & the rest is history. Start writing my own music in the early 80's. Tried to do something with them & joined a band but, didn't go anywhere. Took a very long break in my guitar playing & music writing, sold all my equipment & never got back to it until 2000. My friend & co-worker Oai Lam wanted to do something special for our Y2k New Year's Resolution, he wanted to get his pilot license (he got it) & after thinking about it for awhile. That's when I felt & decided to resurect my passion for music. I always love listening to almost all types of music & have a very wide range of styles & types. Rock Music is always been my style of playing. January 2000, start writing songs/music again, bought my guitars & equipment & start recording in my home studio. Got introduced to Soundtek Studio in Campbell, Ca. sometime in 2004 by my friend Mark Crissman, where my 1st Studio CD, 6 instrumental & 1 song called "Let It Shine" was recorded & mixed under the project I named "Created by Influence" & the album title is "Let It Shine", Thom Duell on vocals. Now, that I know I have a singer for my songs, I immediately started working on the next albums. I have roughly about 60 plus songs & music all written since 2000, just need finishing touches & there will be more to add as I continue have new ideas, influences & inspirations going through my head all the time. I was very fortunate to work with 3 very talented people in the music industry: Robert Berry, Thom Duell & David Lauser to help me put my albums together. Including: "Take The Shot" album (2005) & "Illusions" album (2008), still the 4 of us involved but now under the name "T Clemente Band". Thom Duell on lead vocals, guitars, bass, arrangements & recording/mixing, Robert Berry on b/u vocals, keyboards, guitars, bass, arrangements & recording/mixing, David Lauser on drums & Teddy Clemente - song writer, arrangements, b/u vocals, rhythm, acoustic & lead guitars.
Amanda Dieck - the new lead singer for the T Clemente Band. She has this beautiful but yet so powerful voice that fits the T Clemente Band music very well. Thom Duell has to leave for a very special project but still one of the advisors for the band's music.
We performed at a number of venues in the bay area like San Mateo County Fair, Alameda County Fair, California State Fair, Palo Alto World Music Day, Rock It Room - SF, Emergenza Festival, Mighty - SF, C & J Sports Bar, Six Flags - Vallejo, Great America - Santa Clara, Troop Fest, Netos, Willow Den - San Jose & more..
TClemente Music - is all about life, our children, our environment and our world spiced up with rock music influenced by great rock artists. We also encourage people to speak their minds & don't hold back. If you don't like what you hear or see on what's going on in this world, you need to express yourself, ............we do.
What's with the Illusion Cover - Earth & Skull image. Basically is what will happen to our world if we don't improve our ways & make changes to our lives, the way we take care & support our children, our environment, political & corporate money & power driven policies, lies, & so on.
But the back of our cover shows the light shining on a flower which gives us hope if we all work together and make the changes …. now.
