JAY CLARKSON & ALAN HAIG A side project of the band Jay Clarkson & The Containers and utilising a Korg keyboard, a Kramer “Striker” guitar and Clarkson’s unique vocals this duo presents atmospheric, moody compositions at a comfortable level of volume. Both musicians have many years experience of performance and presenting original NZ songs. Clarkson writes all her own material.
Jay Clarkson: vocals & guitar ( the Playthings, They Were Expendable, the Expendables, Breathing Cage, The Matches)
Alan Haig on keyboards: ( David Kilgour & The Heavy 8s, The Chills, Snapper, Chug, Verlaines, Song Bong );.“We rearrange the band songs to suit our 2-piece. It’s particularly enjoyable as a vocalist because I can hear myself clearly and relax in to it. Alan’s keyboards are a joy to work alongside of.”
Clarkson’s trademark finger-picking remains an integral part of her compositions. A band single Wakey Wakey World was recently released and a video is available to watch on YouTube and on Jay’s website:
