Salt Lake City electronic duo Oh, Be Clever have released an inspiring and uplifting video for their latest effort “I Will Carry You.” The message behind the song is one of hope to anyone who suffers from depression, suicidal thoughts, mental illness and discrimination – a message that no one has to feel alone. The video features a plethora of local Utah musicians coming together to create a powerful song with a powerful message. The clip is now streaming on Oh, Be Clever’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfG-X-5StkY.

“This song was written to be a voice and a shoulder for those who feel unheard or all alone,” vocalist Brittney Shields explained. “The rate for suicide just keeps climbing, and that’s something that we can’t just sit back and watch any longer. #THEMOVEMENT is a universal understanding that EVERY SINGLE LIFE on this planet is important and deserves love. Our goal is to remind our brothers and sisters on this earth, that they matter. They are so important. We hope to spark more conversation and education about mental illnesses in schooling systems, and encourage parents to talk about it in their homes. Communication and unity is how we start making a change. It starts with us. It starts now.”


Oh, Be Clever blend elements of rock, soul, and electronic music with raw, emotional lyrics that tell stories of love, struggle and empowerment. The enormous voice of singer Brittney Shields combined with the refreshing state of the art sounds of multi instrumentalist Cory Scott Layton come together to create the catchy, upbeat sound that is Oh, Be Clever. The Salt Lake City duo, however, haven’t always enjoyed perfect harmony. Prior to forming Oh, Be Clever, Brittney and Cory were members of separate bands that loathed each other to the point of physical violence. Late one night after a show, a fight broke out in the parking lot between the two bands. Having always admired each other, Shields and Layton fled the scene to create their own music, and Oh, Be Clever was born.
