About Amelia Day & The Cloves

Amelia Day & The Cloves

Amelia Day is a queer folk powerhouse entering the conversation with mainstays like Brandi Carlile, the Indigo Girls, and Tracy Chapman. Underscoring her carefree melodies with gritty, confessional lyricism and raw, heartfelt delivery, she performs with an intimacy that makes even new listeners feel familiar. Amelia mixes elements of her adolescent South Sound mixtapes of folk, rock, and jazz, creating music that plays freely with genre, but is still undeniably "Amelia Day." Without a label, Amelia has independently sold-out venues like Seattle's iconic The Triple Door, been played on popular stations like KEXP and 107.7 The End, opened for pop crooner Stephen Sanchez, and amassed over 1M streams and 75K monthly listeners on Spotify. Amelia just released her sophomore EP "Little One" in early November, which has already been met with rave reviews from publications like The UW Daily and Outwrite.

This past year, Amelia Day has joined forces with Seattle mainstay "The Cloves" as folk rock collaboration, "Amelia Day & The Cloves." The group's unique sound, which features Wurlitzer, cello, and lush 3-part harmonies sold out The Triple Door and earned them Saturday slots at festivals like Bite of Seattle and Brew53 this summer! The Cloves are no strangers to the PNW scene; in the band's 20+ year existence, they have played live sessions on stations like KEXP, festivals like Folk Life and Chinook Fest, and classic venues like The Showbox, The Crocodile, The Triple Door, and Tractor Tavern. Amelia Day and The Cloves share their origins in the small town of Sumner, WA and are excited to continue bringing their down-home folk rock sound to big stages in 2024!


About Small Paul

Small Paul

"Sunshine and storm clouds converge at the core of Seattle's harmony-heavy, Folky Rock and Roll band Small Paul.

Musically, Small Paul is a 4 headed collaborative effort that began fortuitously during the pandemic as a fusion of 4 musicians living in the same pod.

While originally bonding over the shared love of Wings, NRBQ sounding records and singing harmony together late into the night, Small Paul became an outlet and excuse to reckon and engage with each individual's own past and present struggles and to use music as an outlet to create light out of dark days. Their debut album reflects themes of rebirth and renewal, and pulling oneself into the light. While songs like, "A Midnight Sun", "Miner for a Dream", "Live Along" reflect hope for better days today and ahead - "Some Love", "I Don't Wanna Die", and "Sinkin' like a Stone (acoustic)" are opportunities to reflect on the past and grow, and let go. Then there are lighter upbeat songs like "Laugh it Off" and "Amber Light", which are reminders to not take yourself so seriously all the time. Furthermore, a reminder to try and have a healthy acceptance and perception of the unpredictability of life.

Come Alive & Live Again is the debut album from Small Paul. Produced by Erik Blood (Shabazz palaces, Tacocat, Moondoggies) in the fall of 2022. This is an album that sounds best on a long drive over the mountains or to the ocean.Born in and raised Seattleite Kevin Murphy (leader of The Moondoggies) shares drumming and guitar duties with California's born and raised Chris King (leader of the Chris King & The Gutterballs). Chris brings bandmate and collaborator Malcolm Roberts into the fold on bass guitar and harmony and Seth McDonald to fill it out on keyboard and harmony (member of hip-hop band All Star Opera). These different perspectives all pulled together create the vibe that is Small Paul."
