Clair Morgan
Clair Morgan
Clair Morgan is a 5-piece rock outfit from Richmond, Virginia. A band that jokingly refers to themselves as being a band and not being a band. With influences ranging from the likes of Cursive, Teenage Fanclub, Shipping News, Hum, Cap’n Jazz and several others, it comes as no surprise that this enormous collective bring their own unique spin to mathematically dynamic indie rock. No surface is left untouched as the group expands on the songwriting of frontman Clair Morgan with a variety of auxiliary instrumentation, smooth harmonies, complex interlaced guitars and syncopated rhythms. All of this combined leads to a unique live experience that can only best be described as a tiny orchestra playing catchy rock tunes.

In 2012, Morgan released his debut full-length entitled No Notes. A release that featured Morgan performing a majority of songs written over the span of several years. After several lineup shifts, he has settled into a groove with this current incarnation. In 2016, Richmond label Egghunt Records will be putting out the group’s second LP entitled New Lions and The Not Good Night. This new album was recorded in Arlington, Virginia at the legendary Inner Ear Studios and it was mixed and mastered by Engineer TJ Lipple. The band has shared the stage with the likes of The Last Bison, The Pauses, Beach Fossils, Suburban Living, Ava Luna, Sleepwalkers, The Snowy Owls and several others. The band has received tremendous praise from local Richmond publications such as RVA Magazine, RVA Playlist, You Hear That! and several others.

Georgia Isaacs
Georgie Isaacs is a singer-songwriter from Newport News, Virginia. From the beach to her current location on the James River in Richmond, she gathers her energy from nature and good vibes from all around. Georgie also enjoys talking in the third person about herself but for some reason, writing bios is always an awkward experience for her.
