The Cluttertones are Lina Allemano (trumpet), Rob Clutton (bass, composition), Ryan Driver (voice, synth, piano), and Tim Posgate (banjo, guitar).

"Clutton composes pieces that begin with the improbable and sometimes approach the uncanny, strange states of musical mind in which the heterodox elements seem to tune calmly to a new standard." - Stuart Broomer, Whole Note

"The Cluttertones trade in a sort of weirdness and beauty you're very unlikely to have encountered before." - Nick Storring, Musicworks
