“Laurie [Caner] is by far one of my most favorite songwriters ... The great songs just keep coming.” – Scott Regan, Host of “Open Tunings” on WRUR
“This crew could single handedly ignite a whole new folk music scare. Killer stuff!” – Midwest Record
For more than eleven years, the Ohio-based Americana band Hey Mavis has been weaving a musical tapestry and igniting a following of dedicated fans. With heartfelt vocals, honest songwriting, blazing instrumental solos, and an undeniable onstage musical chemistry, this quartet is the definition of great Americana music.
Banjoist/songwriter Laurie Michelle Caner and violinist/fiddler Eddie Caner formed Hey Mavis while serving as artists-in-residence in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The band also includes bassist Bryan Thomas and percussionist Anthony Taddeo.
Producer Don Dixon (REM/Smithereens/Red Clay Ramblers) “discovered” the group on a local Christmas compilation CD and went on to produce their first two albums, both of which hit the top 10 on the national Folk DJ radio charts and amassed favorable reviews across the globe.
Their most recent album, Live at Lovin’ Cup, was recorded right here in Rochester and released as a QR code on the side of a bottle of Karma Sauce hot sauce!
Hey Mavis has appeared on NPR’s Mountain Stage, NPR’s Whad’ya Know?, and PBS’s Songs from the Center. The group has performed standing-room-only shows at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival as well as nine consecutive sell-out concerts in their hometown of Akron, Ohio. In 2018, Melissa Etheridge personally chose Hey Mavis to perform on her music cruise featuring Etheridge and Sarah McLachlan.
