Clive Roberts has wonderful memories of his parent’s passion for music.  His mother played piano and his father performed his own songs on the ukulele-banjo for the troops during World War II.  Clive picked up on their love of making music and set off to do the same.  While interested in playing the electric guitar but having little money, Clive made his own.  That resourcefulness led to a distribution job within the industry, a job that suited him just fine.  In fact, he has been in the industry ever since.  He worked for a few companies including Trace Elliot, Kaman Music Corporation, Gibson Guitars before hooking up with Hartley Peavey in the early 2000s.  Clive has also been a strong supporter of organizations within the industry including the MIA in England and NAMM.
