Hey Mavis


Northeast Ohio’s Favorite Americana Folk Rock Band

Appalachian Americana


Why you should see this show…

The music of Hey Mavis focuses on the beautiful imagery of life, from the joys of raising children to the pain of experiencing heartbreak. These images are able to come to life through the sounds of Appalachian Americana. These Cleveland natives have created a music that breathes new life into an old sound.

Hey Mavis Bio
Hey Mavis was born in 2009 as part of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park artist-in-residence program. Producer Don Dixon (REM/Smithereens/Red Clay Ramblers) “discovered” the group on a Michael Stanley Christmas compilation CD and immediately agreed to produce their debut album, Red Wine. The CD quickly climbed the national Folk DJ-L radio charts, peaking at #5 for overall artist while the songs “Red Light” and “Red Wine” peaked at #5 and #9. The CD finished the year at #13 in Folk Alley’s “Top CDs of 2010” alongside new releases by Tim O’Brien, Peter Rowan, Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Chieftains, and Bob Dylan.

In 2013, Dixon produced their second release, Honey Man, which incorporated a fatter sound with guitar, drums, harmonica, and string arrangements. This appealed to a more mainstream audience, and Honey Man outsold its predecessor Red Wine by a factor of two while continuing to amass favorable reviews from across the globe.

Yonder Mountain’s Adam Aijala produced their most recent 2015 release, What I Did. Chuck Auerbach, who wrote the lyrics to the Black Keys song Hard Row, co-wrote the title track, “What I Did” with Hey Mavis.

Over the past five years, Hey Mavis has methodically ramped-up touring efforts, moving from humble porch concerts in the Cuyahoga Valley to successes that include a recent appearance on NPR’s Mountain Stage, two overflow shows at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, and seven consecutive sell-out concerts in their hometown of Akron, Ohio.

With songs that effortlessly float from softly orchestrated lullabies to raw and raucous love songs, the music of Hey Mavis is best described as “Appalachian Americana.”
