New Photos from Friday Night! 

What a fun weekend! Friday night at the King West Bier Markt was a great time as always, and we were lucky enough to get have the talented photographer Katherine Ridgley (check out her Flickr site) come by and take some dazzling shots. Thanks Katherine for such great photos! Check them out on our Photos page

Looking forward to some exciting things coming up... new song, new video, new dates and more! Have a great week, and hope to see some of you at Drums N Flats in North Toronto on Friday night, or Mississauga at Bier Markt Square One on Saturday night!

5 Years Since 'Comfort In A Sound' 

It's been a wild ride over the years. 5 years ago, we were recording 'Comfort In A Sound' at EMac Studios in London, Ontario with producer, Matt Grady (we were also watching Canada win the World Cup). The photos in the CD were taken by the amazing fashion photographer, Scott Lennon at his studio and his puppy Reilly already loved the tunes.

Happy 5th birthday to our first CD! Here's to many more! 

Check out some behind the scenes during the production.

Happy Family Day! Introducing: Stages, Volume 1. 

Family Day in Ontario today, and it's freeeeezzzzziiinnnggg! Pipes are freezing but hearts are warm, mostly because it's a long weekend.

The Clearing is happy to be taking part in a project called "Stages" which is a compilation of independent, Canadian music, which will raise money for Children's Health Foundation. We're raising money on IndieGogo.com to save enough to manufacture and market the compilation, with all profits going to this great cause, which helps to bring hope and health to so many children and their families. Please visit the campaign and help out by contributing a couple dollars and sharing the project with your friends and family. We'd really appreciate your support!
