The Clarkes / Bio

Brandi Belle Clarke began her fiddle career in a family bluegrass band when she was 16. Before long she was performing in Texas dance halls and attending McLennan Community College’s commercial music program. She spent a few years playing fiddle with numerous acts in Nashville and touring with alternative country bands. Brandi moved back to Texas, after completing her degree in Composition and Arranging at Belmont University, to play with Houston based Irish rock band, The Blaggards. Brandi is currently a freelance fiddle player and loving mother.
Bryce Clarke got his first guitar at the age of 10. He started playing with central Texas dance bands at 14. He played lead guitar with Dallas based country singer/songwriter Max Stalling for 4 years. He has been lucky enough to play shows with Heybale, blacktopGYPSY, Miss Leslie, and Matt Harlan, among others. Bryce’s playing can be heard on numerous recordings, including Max Stalling’s chart topping “Home To You”. Bryce is currently touring with Austin based Hudson Moore.

The couple met while playing in a Top 40 country dance band. After playing together in numerous bands, Brandi and Bryce went their seperate ways for a few years pursuing different paths. They were reconnected, and married at Robert's Western World, on Broadway, in Nashville, TN in 2010.

In 2012 the couple decided to start their own project under their last name. Their daughter, Acuff-Rose, was born in March 2013. They have been enjoying parenthood and just completed their debut self-titled album.
