Clint Niosi is a prolific songwriter and composer who calls Fort Worth, Texas home. Clint is known as "an agile fingerstyle guitarist" (I Love FTW), with a "great vocal tone and an original style" (D Magazine). Clint’s lyrics drip with literary themes that "often verge on poetry, as strong alone on the page as when performed with inflections and music added" (FW Weekly). In the Spring of 2023, Clint was selected as an Amplify 817 artist, curated by Hear Fort Worth and the Fort Worth Public Library. Clint’s song Alone/Unknown was featured on the New York Times Spring 2023 Spotify playlist. Clint is currently writing and recording music for his sixth studio album, and aiming for an early 2024 release.
