"A lively, authentic presence without a lot of pretense" -bolderbeat
The Clearwings is an acoustic folk rock duo. Having refined their sound over hundreds of performances, Raven Adams (vocals) and Mark Phillips (guitar & vocals) present raw, unencumbered music with surprising depth. Praised for an authentic sound and engaging performance, the band remains focused on the intimacy of live music.
Tweaking genres, the Clearwings bring a modern rock edge to a classic folk sensibility. In addition to an ever-growing catalogue of originals, the band continues to craft new arrangements of eclectic covers, distilling a wide range of sounds to their melodic core.
The San Francisco-based duo originated in Denver, Colorado, and has been featured at Sofar Sounds, was selected by The Deli Magazine SF as Emerging Local Artist of the Month (Feb. 2017), and appeared on the current season of The White Wall Sessions. In their time touring California and the West they have shared the stage with notable acts including Roosevelt Dime, Healy, and Strawberry Runners.
