Clayton & Joelle
Don’t let the relative youth of Clayton & Joelle (Clayton Parsons and Joelle Winkel) fool you—they are old souls with a sound that transcends time. Their genuine country-roots style is reminiscent of the ‘60’s American folk revival scene that birthed Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, Pete Seeger, and Peter, Paul & Mary.
While still in the early days of their musical partnership, Clayton & Joelle have won fans wherever they’ve travelled. Parsons’s lyrics are an authentic representation of his often wide-eyed wonder at the world, finding joy in the simple things and profundity in what many of us take for granted. The duo doesn’t rely on heavy instrumentation to underscore the sweetness of their honey-warmed harmonies; Parsons’s skill at finger picking provides the perfect thread for Winkel’s exquisite voice to weave its way around, creating an uncomplicated but gorgeous tapestry of music.
The deftness of their singing and songwriting has not gone unsung: the recently engaged duo were recognized by the Kootenay Music Awards with the Album of the Year for their debut release in 2016. Live, their sweet and soulful music is punctuated with stories behind the songs, inside jokes that the whole audience becomes a part of and true generosity of spirit.
