Cleargreen is powered by the formidable songwriting partnership of Ali Staley (vocals/guitar)and Liam McIver (vocals/bass) alongside two of the North West’s most complete musicians in Josh Haworth (lead guitar) and Mike Wilcox (drums).

The band was created by Ali and has since seen a few lineup changes. The dynamic of the band completely changed in 2016 when Liam came into the fold through the recommendation of mutual friends and took on some of the songwriting duties, giving the band two times the ammo. 2018 has seen the addition of Josh and Mike and this line up is the most solid it’s ever been. Mike offers the band an uncompromising backbone, while Josh adds tremendous amounts of style and flair to their songs.

The band is a perfect combination of big songs and music genre personalities, always striving to uncover the classics of tomorrow.

Having been listed in Fred Perry’s music site for ‘Top Manchester Bands you need to hear’, as well as huge hometown shows at Manchester’s 02 Ritz, a 500 capacity sell out at Rebellion and fresh off the back of a Summer of big gigs, supporting the likes of Twisted Wheel, and gracing the Allotment Stage for ‘This Feeling’ at YNOT festival, the band are ready for the next step with big things to come.

The epic new single ‘Gone’ will be released on November 17th.
