Ohio's Hey Mavis is the husband-and-wife team of Laurie Michelle Caner (banjo/vocals/songwriting) and Ed Caner (fiddle/viola). With the addition of Brent Kirby (guitar/vocals/kick drum/harmonica) and Bryan Thomas (upright bass/Chank-o-matic 6000), Hey Mavis has become a runaway freight train that's caught on fire.  Songs that capture the endless light of love, the beauty and heartache of motherhood and the fleeting nature of time... rhythms that rock the baby to sleep and get everyone else on their feet...solos that soar and vocals that always leave the audience wanting more.

In 2012, Hey Mavis earned a performance on the main stage of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival as a finalist in the annual Planet Bluegrass band competition.

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”. Their lyrics focus heavily on the beautiful imagery of life, the joy and labor of raising children, and the timeless themes of love and heartbreak.
“Wrapped in original songs whose styles range from old timey to jazzy to blistering alt rock, Laurie's voice turns from cold steel to melted butter in the time it takes your heart to break."
~ Don Dixon, key producer of the jangle pop movement
