William Clark is the bassist with a band that calls itself Mae, a name that would not be out of place in a small Virginia town. For a band from just such a background, the three letters pack a load of information but perhaps it is misleading. Listeners might expect something with more of a country-rock orientation, yet Mae's sound is loaded with keyboards and has been compared to bands such as U2 and the Police. Clark performs on the group's 2003 release on Tooth and Nail, a label associated with Christian rock but apparently not exclusively, since Mae doesn't seem into that, either.
