Visit the Upcoming Appearances page for appearance times and specific dates. While you’re on the site, download a free copy of “Your Shadow” available for a limited time.



This long awaited album features all the lyrics from the bestselling thriller / mystery novel XO by #1 international bestselling author Jeffery Deaver (author of “The Bone Collector” and James Bond's “Carte Blanche.”) set to music by Clay Stafford and Ken Landers and performed by Treva Blomquist. Listen to the clues contained in the songs as you read the book, joining along with fictional detective Kathryn Dance. Or just enjoy the music on its own. With influences from Taylor Swift, Paul Simon, and Miranda Lambert, this collection of pop / country tunes is sure to please anyone sleuthing for great music. Incidentally, Deaver used to be the opening act for Bob Dylan. This is a treat.

Available on iTunes, CD Baby, and numerous other download stores.

In Deaver’s novel, the story centers on a young country/pop singer, Kayleigh Towne, who encounters a stalker along the way. As with all Deaver books, things are not always as they seem.

Initially, Deaver, a #1 international bestselling author, wanted American Blackguard to record “Your Shadow” as a free download as a promotional tool for the novel. Stafford, president of American Blackguard Music, agreed to compose the music for the song and recruited long-time American Blackguard composer Ken Landers. Landers' credits include a Who’s Who of recording artists across a variety of genres.

The collaboration between the three was so productive that Stafford suggested doing an entire album of the lyrics used in the book to be distributed by American Blackguard Records.

The songs on the album were recorded by Nashville recording artist Treva Blomquist, playing the role of Deaver’s main character.

Jeffery Deaver is the author of 27 novels and two short story collections. His books are sold in over 150 countries and translated into 25 languages. His book “A Maiden’s Grave” was made into an HBO movie starring James Garner and Marlee Matlin. His novel “The Bone Collector” was a feature release from Universal Pictures, starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. His thriller, “The Devil’s Teardrop,” was made into a TV movie by the Lifetime network, starring Natasha Henstridge, Tom Everett Scott, and Rena Sofer. Most recently, Deaver wrote the latest James Bond book, “Carte Blanche.”

Clay Stafford is an internationally bestselling author, filmmaker (producer, director, writer), actor, and composer with his work in over 14 languages. The bulk of his acting career has been in touring professional theater, but he has appeared onscreen in such productions as "Days of Our Lives," and "Clue: Movies, Murder and Mystery with Martin Mull." As a film development and production executive, he has worked at Universal Studios, PBS, and now at American Blackguard Entertainment where he has been responsible for green-lighting numerous national and international projects. While at Universal, he had the privilege of offering studio support to such productions as "Miami Vice," "MacGyver," "Murder She Wrote," "Legal Eagles," "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," "Magnum PI," and "Amazing Stories," among many others. His retellings of American children’s classics released through Dalmatian Press have sold over 1.2 million copies in the United States alone. His films and literary works have been released in over 14 languages. As a composer and record producer, his scores can be heard on everything from TV movies to commercials. In 2006, he founded Killer Nashville, an internationally-attended, volunteer-run annual conference, focusing on crime, mystery, thriller and suspense literature.

Ken Landers' live and studio recording credits include projects for Trace Adkins, Pat Boone, Elvis Costello, Steve Earle, Peter Frampton, Vince Gill, David Byrne, Alan Jackson, Louise Mandrell, Kathy Mattea, Michael McDonald, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, N’Sync, Oak Ridge Boys, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, Hank Williams, Jr., ZZ Top, and more.
