CLAY RAVENS – “ALL IN”
A Spill Exclusive Canadian Music Premiere
Clay Ravens are a sweat soaked foot-stomping indie folk band from Vancouver that has been captivating audiences with their energetic live performances since 2014.
Founded upon the guttural, honey-smoked harmonies of their vocal blend, Clay Ravens began as a singer-songwriter folk duo between siblings Justin and Brianne Huntley Smith. Their songs lent themselves to a bigger sound and more complex arrangements, so they began recruiting some of Vancouver’s most talented musicians to develop the Clay Ravens vision.
With each new contributor came an unexpected twist to the original idea. Incorporating Brendan Tydall’s shredding twang electric guitar style, Matt Cook-Contois’s legendary fiddle chops, Kelsey Butkus’s technical bass skills, and Tim Lanham’s hard hitting beats, the band has formed an extremely unique indie folk sound.
“All In” is the first single and title track from Clay Ravens’ forthcoming EP of the same name, to be released in October 2017.
“”All In” is about diving head first into the risks that could crush me, taking my licks, and screaming for more. It’s about jumping full-force down a gravel path to catch something out of my grasp, and being proud of the scars I earned by going for it.” ~Justin Huntley Smith
