  • Guess what! The CD is FINISHED! Woohoo! Come to the Release Party Sept 17 in Kitchener!

  • Guess what else! Heather's moving to Calgary! Polly's going with her, but only for a week. We'll release Silhouettes, and then immediately tour out to Calgary. Then Polly will fly back to KW, and leave Heather to fend for herself against the cold Alberta winter. Clever Girls will then take a temporary hiatus from live gigs due to geographical differences. But we're not breaking up! We just need some space. Three provinces worth of space. And you know, the employment Alberta offers. Hurray for day jobs!

  • Guess what else! Polly didn't get eaten by a bear! She toured up to Tobermory and back by bicycle in August, with Richard Garvey, promoting A Bicycle Built For You, an all original, 16 track CD they recorded in early summer 2010. Check out their blog (which someday they will catch up on) at abicyclebuiltforyou.wordpress.com . You can listen to and download the CD online here.

Reviews

  • Dan Henry of 104.7 Heart FM had this to say on his blog after last year's Big Break Contest in Woodstock, Ontario:

    "Our second night of Heart FM’s Big Break 2 proved to be just as exciting as week 1. We had a great evening of music featuring all styles and genres. One of my favourites on the evening was the Clever Girls. Two women who came from small towns meeting up at University of Waterloo and wrote lyrics about the culture shock of moving to a larger community like K-W. A beautiful sound and very heart felt lyrics.

    Some other highlights include the work by the drummer of Epicacy who only has one leg and one arm and was just incredible on the skins. And also the sweet sounds of Melissa Murray singing while playing her keyboard. It was an incredible evening of music."
