Biography

Klayton (born as Scott Albert) is an industrial rock musician, who has performed under a variety of stage names over his career, and is best known as being the frontman for his latest project, Celldweller.

Klayton has been a part of many bands and side projects over the years, including Circle of Dust, Argyle Park, Angeldust, Klank, and Celldweller. His role in many of his earlier bands (such as Circle of Dust) was mixing/producing, along with some instrumentals. In the case of Klank however, he had no direct influence besides producing. With Celldweller, his latest project, he has moved into the “one-man band” style of music, comparable to Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails.

One of the main reasons that he has been a part of so many bands is his desire to change the type of music he creates when he feels it to be necessary. His first main act, Circle of Dust. had a very distinct feeling of industrial mixed with heavy metal, though by its final album, it had a noticeably softer edge to it, and was signed onto a Christian music label, R.E.X. Music. His next project Argyle Park was a short-lived collaboration between himself, and his friend, who went under the stage name of ‘Buka.’ Argyle Park released one critically acclaimed self-titled album, before its members folded it. Angeldust, which followed, saw him paired up with the showman Criss Angel, and while the band did not last long (Angel has now released music under his own name), Klayton has remarked that he learned a lot about making a good live show.
