Biography

Clay Aiken has never sounded more at home than he does singing the lushly arranged classics on his fifth studio album Tried and True — the international pop phenomenon’s first album for Decca Records. The bulk of the album — which showcases Aiken’s powerful tenor voice and considerable interpretive gifts — is made up of songs from the ’50s and ’60s ... Read more in Amazon's Clay Aiken Store

Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

"I stand by this recording `steadfastly,' which is why I chose the title and how I feel about moving forward in my career in general - being focused and steadfast" he says.

Product Description

2012 collection from the American Idol sensation. Steadfast revisits the best of 2010's release Tried And True, featuring selected cuts from that record alongside a newly recorded, original song, "Bring Back My Love." Rounding out the disc are thoughtful covers of Neil Sedaka's "Breaking Up is Hard to Do," and Connie Francis', "Who's Sorry Now." Steadfast is an extension of the journey Clay Aiken began when he recorded Tried And True interpreting some of his all-time favorite songs from the '50s and '60s that he grew up listening to as a child. After putting some distance between himself and the release of Tried And True, he realized his emotional connection with the music remained so strong he felt compelled to return to the album and highlight the tracks he was most proud of.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is for people who love good music March 26, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is for people who love music with actual melodies. No auto tuning here. His voice shines as always, but the winner for me is the original song "Bring Back My Love". This is one of my favorite songs ever sung by Clay. I am so in love with this song. It shows his tender touch, and yet his powerful vocals come through also. This song so could be a radio hit if only they would play it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistent Delivery Of Beautiful Music! March 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Clay Aiken has a wonderful new follow-up CD to his 2010 offerinng 'Tried And True' in 'Steadfast'. This new CD (10 tracks) Clay Aiken has a great compilation of covers of his old favourites including Neil Sedaka's "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do", Connie Francis' "Who's Sorry Now", 50s/60s classics & his new infectious track "Bring Back My Love". He is very consistent in delivering an incredible music & vocals in this album. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "There's A Kind Of Hush", an opening jazzy track with wonderful piano & vocals, "Bring Back My Love" (great orchestral/piano sound, melody & vocals), "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do", "Crying" (beautiful duet), "Misty" (incredible slow-tempo track) & "Unchained Melody), a great slow jazzy version of this famous classic. Great tracks include "It's Only Make Belief", "It's Impossible", "Who's Sorry Now" & "Moon River". There is no weak track to talk of in this great CD 'Steadfast'.

On overall, this is a fantastic CD release (incredible orchestral base tracks, melody & vocals) by Clay Aiken. A well deserved 5 star performance & a highly recommended CD listening!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice March 26, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love Clay's voice no matter what type of song he sings. With a destinctive voice and style, he is a voice for this century. The song "Bring Back My Love" is so beautifully sung that it gives me goose bumps whenI come to it on the album. I highly recommend this album to anyone who enjoy's a classic voice singing great standards. I am obviously a big fan but also a lover of classic voices of pop or opera. If you are a fan of rap or hip hop this may night be your type of album but perhaps I'm wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steadfast For Sure March 27, 2012
By Sue
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I truly appreciate an artist who stays true to who they are, they don't record music just for the sake of the trend. These songs are standards for a reason, they are rich in musicality and Clay Aiken has the vocal ability to pull them off without a hitch. Bring Back My Love, an original song, brings back a love for music that is melody over beat, lyrics about love rather than sex, a lushness in vocals that are unsurpassed in the industry today. There is not a single gimmick on this CD, and what a breath of fresh air.

If you are a fan of vocals, if you are a fan of melodies, if you are a fan of lyrics - this CD is a must have for your library.

AND, the guitar solo by Vince Gill on Moon River is absolutely to die for, brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best March 27, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album has Clays voice front and center! So beautiful so lush! I contemplated not getting this..but man am I glad I did!!Many are repeats but they have made them even more spectacular.

Clays voice is so pure it transports you to a world full of peace and joy.. I can sit and let that voice wrap me up where I feel all warm inside. Today where theres pain and suffering Clay's voice brings comfort.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but repetetive March 29, 2012
By Shannon
Format:Audio CD
The songs are good and Clay sounds great as always but half of these songs were already released on his last album. I guess I should have checked before automatically buying it. I could've dowloaded only the songs I didn't have. And enough with the cover songs already! How about a whole cd of new material?!?

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful voice + beautiful music = Clay Aiken March 26, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
If you haven't listened to Clay Aiken since his days on American Idol, you might be surprised at how his voice has matured. He really was born too late. I love his voice and it's a perfect fit for these songs.

I especially love his one new selection, 'Bring Back My Love.' It fits beautifully with these 'Steadfast' songs.

I hope his next album will contain some contemporary songs. He can do it all.
