Clay Ravens – “All In EP” premiere

Clay Ravens are a sweat-soaked foot-stomping indie folk band from Vancouver (Canada). 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. Now the band has evolved to incorporate 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.

“We wanted to create a collection of songs that would capture the beauty in gritty Canadian stories of displacement, addiction, and friendship, using a poetic lens. What eventually became the All In EP is an intentional juxtaposition of raw folk and lush indie sounds to support the emotional dynamics of the stories we wanted to tell.”
