CLAVVS is a duo of accidental best friends. Amber Renee and Graham Marsh might never have met if not for a last minute text invitation to a stranger’s house party. Conversations were shared. Jokes were made. Tunes were played. Soon they were writing the songs that would become their first CLAVVS releases.

Despite their often dark and hypnotic sound, there is something hopeful and human in their music, which is evidenced in the genuine nature of their live show. It’s easy to understand why they’ve shared a stage with fellow indie acts Ibeyi and Rhye. Amber and Graham are energetic and emotive, unafraid to move to their own rhythms.

Perhaps that would make sense, given that Amber grew up performing in musical theater and singing her original Americana songs at local venues. And Graham spent years on the major label side of the industry, earning four Grammys for his work with acts like Bruno Mars and Gnarls Barkley before walking away to find a place in music that felt a bit more human.
