Clay Ravens are a sweat soaked foot-stomping indie folk band from Vancouver that has been captivating audiences with their energetic live performances since 2014. Today we are excited to premiere the new song “Draft Dodger.” The song has a purposeful marching pulse, beautiful harmonies, and compelling lyrics. We’ve had it on repeat and are pumped to be able to share it with everyone below!

Clay Ravens on the track:

“My Canadian hometown was a refuge for draft dodgers during the Vietnam War. Relating the stories I heard growing up to current geopolitical situations inspired me to explore the impacts of abandoning your home due to political pressures. The song draft dodger explores the human effects of uprooting yourself and leaving your family for a chance at a better life.”
