The Clearwings Release A New EP On 752.2 Radio

2,654 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.

Mary Beth Cross Releases ”Feels Like Home” EP On 752.2 Radio

2,290 views

”Feels Like Home” begins by welcoming you in from the rain the warmth of the hearth with the Paul Simon classic ”Kathy’s Song”.  Before you know it, the rugs are rolled up and a dance floor is cleared.  Mary Beth takes listeners to her grandparent’s dairy farm back in the 1940’s with ”Threshing Time”, a tune she co-wrote with her 85 year old father.  Airing fears, worry and concern is still a part of family gatherings.  The burdens are shared and then released with Gary White’s ”Long, Long Time”. Mary Beth takes the Linda Rondstadt cover and places it in a bluegrass arrangement, giving it new breath.  She then leads you slowly into the wee hours of the evening (to the bedroom) with ”The Medley” and concludes with an original ditty welcoming the morning and the gift of a new day with ”Cottonwood Creek”.

Mary Beth Cross is an award winning singer, songwriter and musician.  Her music is a soulful, intimate acoustic mix of original and classic tunes.  Her new EP titled ”Feels Like Home” incorporates traditional Bluegrass instruments into her arrangements.  Mary Beth’s originals are inspired by the stories of her family, the forests and farms of her Wisconsin upbringing, and Colorado, where she makes her home.

Clarke Wright has been playing music in some form or another since the early 1970s. He worked with David Ferretta and the Sunday River Boys in Denver in the mid ’70s and appears on their Biscuit City recording “You Can Dress ‘Em Up, But You Can’t Take ‘Em Out.” If you ask Clarke how long he has been playing fiddle he will tell you, “Long enough to where you would say, ‘Wow, shouldn’t you be better than that?'” He has spent over 30 years with The Hollywood Rodeo Band and later their pared down acoustic version, High, Wide and Handsome. HRB/HWH recorded 7 albums and has toured extensively, visiting over 40 nations and territories, entertaining our nation’s Armed Forces.

He picked up the fiddle ‘sometime back in the 20th Century’, and is self taught. “When I hit a wrong note or clam-out a break, I just blame my teacher,” Clarke says.

Originally from Minnesota and the son of an Episcopal Priest, Clarke has evolved into “A Heckuva Fiddle Player” (AHFP). Clarke plays mostly fiddle and guitar, but also mandolin and bass sometimes.

He plays 4 and 5-string fiddles and gets his inspiration and is influenced by Byron Berline, Bob Wills, Tommy Jackson, Leon Rausch, Tom Morrell and the Time Warp Tophands, Johnny Gimble, Vassar Clements, Chet Atkins, Randy “Snuffy” Elmore and a whole lot more!

Clarke is extremely excited about joining 7522 Radio and he looks forward to record some podcasts (and play live) very soon.
