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 & percussion) 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 began performing as the Clearwings in December of 2013. Since then, they have been gigging extensively around Denver, recording, and traveling to New Mexico and California for shows. Their sets include standards and covers in addition to ever-increasing original material.
The Clearwings launched their first tour in September 2015, kicking things off in California, and will be on the road through the end of the year.
