The Clay States open for Ryan Cavanaugh and No Man’s Land Sunday July 22

The Clay States is a singer/songwriter duet who have been living in the Southwest for a number of years, but grew up and is now based in Alabama. This split geography has resulted in an exploration of Western Americana and Southern Gothic imagery that finds its way into the group’s songwriting. They are currently experimenting with hymn and lament concerning war, death, betrayal and redemption.

The Clay States open for Ryan Cavanaugh Sunday, July 22 at the Rooster’s Wife.

FRIDAY NIGHT | She plays boogie woogie like Boogaloo Ames, and sings like a cross between Diana Krall and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

This weekend, kick off Bluescrawl at the Rooster’s Wife with Eden Brent. The Missisippi-born blues piano player developed her Boogie Woogie style from one of the best known players of the genre himself, Boogalo Ames. The Harris Brothers will open. 

Bring a picnic dinner and sit outside:

A Far Cry From Here

I’ve heard misfortune losses
And wasted ways before me by the costs
Of givin’ someone time enough for spendin’
Love only borrowed

I’ve placed myself at ease
Listenin’ to the lies of self-belief
For wantin’ somethin’ close enough for keepin’
A far cry from here

    But I believe in ways than these
    To speak another dear who has been spared
    Innocent so near
    A far cry from here

Even still the night is passin’
Behind her heart an emptiness still follows
The distance dams the swallows hard for lendin’
Love only borrowed


Some are sad but true to know
There’s belongin’ in just longin’ for someone
My shoulder rests a road I only follow
Love only borrowed


A far cry from here
A far cry from here…
