2,292 views

The Clearwings is an independent alt-folk duo with a focus on the intimacy of live performance. They combine tight harmonies with driving guitar, bringing a modern edge to a classic folk sensibility. The result is a dynamic sound, with influences ranging from 60s greats like Peter, Paul, & Mary, Johnny Cash & June Carter, and Ian & Sylvia, to modern rock interpreters like The White Stripes and The Strokes.

The Clearwings is fronted equally by Raven Adams (vocals) and Mark Phillips (vocals & guitar). While Raven is native to Santa Cruz, California and Mark from Golden, Colorado, the pair began collaborating on music in college in Maine and moved to Colorado in 2009. They formed the Clearwings in December of 2013, performing folk standards and unexpected covers around Denver while developing original material.

In August 2015, the Clearwings released a single, ”Nothing to Say” and B-side track (”I don’t believe a thing”). The duo launched their first tour (called the “New Hip Tour” for Mark’s newly reconstructed hip joint) to support the release, playing shows from San Francisco to Cheyenne throughout the end of the year. After a short break while Mark had a second hip surgery, the Clearwings released the “Rocks in My Shoes” EP in May 2016.

The Clearwings are very excited that their music is being played on 7522 Radio.

A charismatic performer, he knows how to engage a crowd and has been slowly adding new original material to the set list.

Bruce Walls Releases His First Album ”Glitch Switch” On 7522 Radio

I was born in New York City and I was raised by my mother Ivette and my stepfather Marcus.  The beginning of the love for the music started with my stepfather, giving that he had love for all the good classics and also played instruments in the house with the intentions of introducing them to me.  By the time I turned 15 years old, he took me to a music store and showed me a whole wall filled from top to bottom with amazing guitars and told me to ‘Pick the one that you want.’  I began to be overwhelmed by the thought that I can go home with any of them.  As I glanced all around them, I made my choice and decided to take home a B.C. Rich Warlock and a Danver amp.  Little did I know that I was walking out the door with destiny in my hands; not only did I create a passion for guitars and other instruments in that moment, but I created an obsession for good music, too.

As years passed by, I moved to Puerto Rico with my parents and so my step-father decided to go back to New York City to work and he would visit every month.  My mother was always working which gave me time to play my own music and write all kinds of songs.  With time I created bands in school and also after school with my other friend.  As I continued my music journey, I met different artists with different visions of music and I began to be more and more open minded to all kinds of genres.

I also got involved with Florida studios and other programs out there and began to manipulate my own sounds and effects.  I made my own electronic EPS.

In conclusion, I believe that the definition of music comes from within yourself, regardless if it is created with your hands on an instrument or if it comes from pressing buttons, switches, nobs or even a mixture of both as long as you feel it in your heart and soul. Music is the sound that our soul makes and our soul in the only real thing that we have as mankind.

Music take time, passion and life experiences to create.  Your past will define what your music will be today and I strongly believe that the public will be inspired by your message by using their perspectives of all the same experiences we all have growing up and surpassing life itself.

Bruce Walls is very excited that his music is being played on 7522 Radio.
