"Best of 2012"

Q: What do you get when you have two female violinists, a guitar virtuoso in an apron, and a solid rhythm section? A: One of my favorite bands and albums of 2012. I dare you to play the opening track "Bread" for anyone who loves music. If they arent blown away let me know and I will troll their Facebook page. This is as solid of a six song debut as I've ever heard. -


Our first EP, "The City I Am Building Is For You", is out now! We have here included the tracks "Mesopotamia", "Dear John", and "Carrier Pigeon".



Hailing from Seattle, Clearly Beloved is a gathering of five musicians, friends and storytellers. They write and orchestrate songs about fishermen; homesteaders; the feeling you get the moment before a shark attack; the flight of a carrier pigeon. Having at their disposal guitar, drums, bass, violins, marimbas, vocals, hand bells, toy piano, viola and glockenspiel, they are not opposed to using anvil and hammer, when the song calls for it. Nor are they opposed to dancing a tango with large paper mache dolls when required. They have not written about heartbreak, but do have songs about baking bread.

Gathering in 2011, Clearly Beloved just finished recording their first EP in March, The City I am Building is for You, at the reputable Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville, WA. It is to be released later this year. Clearly Beloved was delighted to share the stage with renowned artists such as Faun Fables, Rachel Sages and Steve Fisk in Seattle, 2011.

If Clearly Beloved was a wagon train, then Jenn and Katie, songwriters, singers, and violinists, might be scouts who carry pistols and bring in game. Their bags are filled with provisions that will render any journey a thing of ease: Music degrees! Decades of experience on their instruments! Un-faded imaginations! Courage to forage ahead!
Clearly Beloved looks forward to the release of their EP, followed by a season of live shows in the Seattle area, along with plans for a West Coast tour in the near future. Off goes their wagon train--Clearly Beloved-- a labor of love, one member supporting the next. Do find them.
