Paragon

I am filled with gratitude for the incredible journey of love, learning, and life that unfolded while Jason and I raised our three artistic and beautiful children. Throughout those remarkable and challenging years, we tried to make space for art and music in our shared lives. I hoped that one day, once we would be able to give it more attention and focus, there would be a chance and time to record, perform, and release another album. My wonderful husband helped make that dream a reality. I am immensely thankful for his unwavering support and encouragement, and for the family and friends who believed in my dream and cheered me on every step of the way. I am forever grateful.

Thank you to Amanda Biggs, Jenn Cristy, and Kara Barnard  for helping me get my voice and guitar skills back on track after decades of misuse and no practice.  You are amazing women and make a difference in our community.

The Story of Paragon - the EP

JC Clements makes a triumphant return to the music scene with her latest EP, 'Paragon', after a hiatus of two decades where she dedicated herself to family and community. This deeply personal collection of songs reflects the profound experiences and resilience of a woman who has navigated life's tumultuous waters. Each track on 'Paragon' resonates with the authenticity and depth of someone who has intimately known the joys and sorrows of raising children, the heartache of supporting family through drug-related health crises, the courage of overcoming childhood abuse, and the poignant grief of losing friends to domestic violence. JC's melodic folk rock compositions are not just songs; they are stories woven from the fabric of real life, offering listeners a window into the soul of a woman who has emerged stronger and more insightful. 'Paragon' is more than an EP; it's a testament to the indomitable spirit of overcoming and finding beauty in the ashes of life's hardest moments.
