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.
