CLAY AND FRIENDS
With a rich cultural and musical blend, Clay and Friends is a musical collective that draws inspiration from hip-hop, funk, jazz, soul and reggae. Champions of musical improvisation and freestyle, Mike Clay and his crew wield words in a prose that perfectly reflects Montreal in both French and English. The group is inspired by urban life and feeds off simplicity and instinct, leading to organic jams on stage that include beatbox and sampling. Clay & Friends has literally stirred over 500 crowds throughout Canada and Europe. Their first album Conformopolis was released March 2017, on the label Ste-4.
