Cleargreen is powered by the formidable song writing 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 started by Ali and has since seen a few up changes. The dynamic of the band completely changed in 2016 when Liam cam into the fold through recommendation of mutual friends and took on some of the song writing duties, giving the band two times the ammo. 2018 has seen the addition of Josh and Mike and this line up is the most soild ever.
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 musical personalities, always striving to uncover the classics of tomorrow.
