ROCK - Alternative
With roots in Milwaukee, WI, Clear Pioneer has recently propelled themselves into the public eye. If they’re not on your radar, you’re going to want them to be. Crafted by Grant Clementi (Lead Vocals and Guitar), Kyler Schmor (Drums and Backing Vocals), Jesse Carl (Synth and Bass), and Jon Eleyet (Guitar and Trombone),their primary purpose is to cultivate an emotional connection with the listener by writing heartfelt lyrics that are brought to life by guitar-driven flares and synthesized atmospheres. Their sound can be most easily be categorized as Indie-Pop but, never settling for the ordinary, they pair electronic enhancements and synths to their melodic, yet raw, one-liners and catchy choruses for a genre-bending product that is “painted in ambient tones, resulting in an 80s-esque vibe” (Explain.News).
Off to a strong start, they’ve already played “The World’s Largest Music Festival,” Summerfest; local Wisconsin festivals, Madison’s Brat Fest and Oshkosh’s Lifest. They’ve also performed alongside Nevershoutnever, Family Force 5, Jesse McCartney, Rapture Ruckus, and more.
