Clever Hopes is Andrew Shaver and Eva Foote, with a handful of pals. We started making music in Montreal, recorded it in Toronto, and will play it almost anywhere. 
 Like LeifVollebekk? CharleyCrockett? SwellSeason? Obviously. Patti Griffin? Sarah Harmer? JJ Cale? Yeah. We do too. 
 Also, Vladdy’s quiet swagger, Lourdes’ hair, and Robbie’s tight pants. 
 Artefact was recorded mostly live off the floor at Union Sound in Toronto in late fall 2020 with Noah Reid on keys and some vocals Joe Grass on several guitars, various stringed instruments and some vocals Matthew Barber on organ and some vocals Steve Zsirai on bass Marshall Bureau on drums 
 Justin Rutledge joined on a couple of tunes on a couple different guitars
& Kev Foran added some brass after the fact from all the way over in Dublin, with thanks to Bryan Quinn
