The Henry Clay People are a rock and roll band from Los Angeles. With common comparisons to Pavement and The Replacements they play a type of no-frills, pretention-free rock that has sorely been missing from LA. The band is made up of brothers Joey (vocals, guitar) and Andy (guitar, vocals) Siara, Jonathan Price (bass, vocals) and Eric Scott (drums).
Last year, the group released Blacklist the Kid with the Red Moustache to much critical acclaim. The album was produced by Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, British Sea Power) and Colin Stewart (Frog Eyes, Pretty Girls Make Graves). Over the past year they have taken that momentum and have further firmed their hold on Los Angeles with plays on Indie103.1, KROQ and Sirius Satellite radio, a residency at The Echo, high profile shows alongside the likes of The Whigs, Bodies of Water, Quasi, Frog Eyes, Broken West and a spot at this summer’s Sunset Junction Fest with !!!, Beachwood Sparks, Black Keys, Cold War Kids and more. A standout set at SXSW in March highlighted their chaotic-but-still-all-in-good-fun live show that led Esquire to declare them “the most intoxicated band in Austin” and that “the usually amazing band was made even more amazing by the fact that they could barely stand.” This is The Henry Clay People. A band that plays every show with the same amount of energy and love whether it’s to a crowd of hundreds or to a crowd of a few.
