For Helena, Montana-based Regan, (R.) Clancy, songs come first. Growing up in a house filled with the sounds of the Beatles and Van Morrison, his love for aching lyrics set to well-crafted melodies was cemented at a young age. From the moment he picked up a guitar at age sixteen, Clancy’s intent was to create his own musical compositions, and he has followed that desire ever since. Having honed his writing skills over fifteen years as frontman for numerous bands and as a solo artist, Clancy draws from a deep well of influences to compose songs that are honest and inviting in a style that is wholly his own.
“Give Up Your Salt,” R. Clancy’s first release under his own name, finds Clancy indulging in his love for energetic electric guitar-driven indie rock in the vein of such experimental bands as Broken Social Scene, Wilco, and Nada Surf. At the core of these ambitiously dense compositions is Clancy’s poetic observation of the human experience, revealed in nuanced lyrics that catalog a wide range of relatable emotions. The eclectic collection of songs invites a second and third listen, best served loudly.
He is currently working on a full-length record and is playing concerts around Montana as a solo performer and as singer/bassist with Hard Hugs, a synth-punk-disco group from Helena.
