New Clear Sound’s Cory Myraas

Band can see clearly now

Vernon's New Clear Sound is back to record live show at Sneakers Saturday.

It’s been six years since New Clear Sound hit the coffee house circuit in Vernon, but the band is back and ready to percolate some new tunes –– this time at Sneakers Sports Bar Saturday.

The local faves, who originally started performing at the open mic night at the former Portillos Coffee House, are recording the Sneakers show live for an upcoming album.

“The show this weekend is our big comeback gig. We are really excited to play again as we have been out of the spotlight for too long,” said lead guitarist/vocalist Ted Fox.

Fox along with his bandmates, Cameron Lutz (drums) and Cory Myraas (rhythm guitar, vocals), took a year off from performing to finish up New Clear Sound’s latest album, Re-Percussion.

The follow-up to the band’s self-titled debut, which was nominated for a 2009 B.C. Interior Music Award for rock album of the year, Re-Percussion is now available at and iTunes.

“We are really proud of this release,” said Fox. “We put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into it.”

The band also has a new member, bassist Rob Raybould (a sound engineer who was in another popular Vernon band, Poor Little Rich Girl, with Myraas and Lutz who also happen to also be two-thirds of another popular band, Paperboy), as well as a new manager, Michael Illingby.

“This year Ted decided to take things a little more seriously and has retained a manager for the band. That is where I come in. I will be taking over the booking and business end of the band which frees up Ted to focus on the creative side of music. This coming year, and those that follow, promise to be prosperous and fun,” said Illingby.

Besides performing, New Clear Sound’s upcoming year will also bring a new album.

“This time we will be doing an album filled with popular covers and tributes. This is for the fans, they ask and we will deliver,” said Fox.

New Clear Sound takes the stage at Sneakers, in the Village Green Hotel, Saturday at 9 p.m. This is a 19-plus show.
