Jason is tripping in Hollywood at 2AM. Having just taken acid for the first time, he navigates through a vortex of geometric displays comprising the essence of life before deciding he simply must go on a night hike up the Beachwood Canyon trail to the iconic Hollywood sign. The band Jason has played guitar in since age 16 has just broken up after years of cross-country tours, and he suddenly faces an uncertain future. Unfortunately for Jason, as he approaches the trailhead he spots a group of coyotes heading down towards him. Have you ever seen coyotes on acid? They’re scary as hell. Jason retreats back to his apartment, wallowing in disappointment at another lost opportunity.
He discovers the next morning that three decapitated bodies were discovered on that very same trail, victims of an apparent gang hit. Time of death? The exact same time he was scared away. Did those beachwood coyotes save his life? You bet they did.
Suddenly songs start pouring out of Jason, years and years of relentless touring providing fertile subject matter for songs about the loneliness of life on the road and the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles. After bringing the hard-hitting rhythm section of bassist Drew Smith and drummer Bryan King on board along with Canadian guitar phenom Yan Clermont, Beachwood Coyotes is born.
Buoyed by a growing local fanbase and multiple successful tours throughout the western US, Beachwood Coyotes are ready for their next step in their musical endeavor. Their latest EP ’Scrubby’ is set be released in summer of 2017. God bless those damn coyotes.

Founder, main songwriter, arranger, composer and lead vocalist for the successful British band, When In Rome who's worldwide hit 'The Promise' reached No. 1 on the US Club Play Chart in 1988 and No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1989. In 2004, The Promise was used as the main end theme for the successful Indie film, Napoleon Dynamite which became a worldwide cult smash! Clive has always had a keen interest in film score with influences from Francis Lai (famous for his love themes including the theme from Love Story) and John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing). Having been taken at 12 years of age to see the Halle Orchestra play Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake at The Free Trade Hall in Manchester, Clive got the bug for classical music. This influenced his decision to form a band and create music. With many credits for the use of The Promise in popular film and TV shows, in 2018 Clive was given the opportunity to score a full length documentary called 'Robbery of the Heart' by director, Micah Brandt which is due for release later this year.
The Thirsty Crows are a four piece hard rockabilly outfit out of Los Angeles. We coined the term ‘South Bay Rockabilly’ for our style. For us, what this means is that we are an amalgamation of the energetic Punk Rock that came out of our South Bay area mixed with our take on the traditional Rockabilly/Western sounds we all grew up on.

His songs are lyrics- and guitar-driven, blending his love of British punk and new wave, Outlaw country of the 1970s, and the classic heartland-rock songs that top 40 DJs don’t seem to spin anymore.
