Scotti Clifford of Spirit Cries on Make No Bones About It. May 5th, 2019 5pm

A Native American rock trio formed in the Badlands of South Dakota, Scotti Clifford & Spirit Cries is sonically rooted in blues and indie rock inspired lyrically by their Oglala Lakota ancestry. The band consists of father Scotti Clifford, vocals/guitar/bass, daughter Wahpe Louella Clifford (16) on drums, and son Welby June Clifford (18) on guitar. They have recently toured the United States, opening for the bands Dispatch and Nahko & Medicine for the People at Stubb’s in Austin, Texas, and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Singer-songwriter Scotti says touring from coast to coast symbolizes a traditional buffalo hunt. “In order to provide for my family, we must follow the music.” As a modern day Lakota family who views movement as sacred, Scotti hopes to show his daughter and son how to find balance, both spiritually and professionally.
