Clay Ravens are a sweat soaked foot-stomping Americana 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 Jesse Mark’s hard hitting jazz beats, the band has formed an extremely unique folk-Americana sound.
