Ig Bo Lyn writes intimate, spectral music that evokes some lost, skewed take on the folk-rock genre. Lyrically, singer Clinton St. John picks over miserablist themes of longing and loss, to build stories that are simultaneously heartbreaking and inspiring, tough and fragile–placing the listener in their own worn, ragged, but comfortable shoes.

Formerly of The Cape May and Pale Air Singers, Clinton has recorded with Steve Albini, and toured across Europe and the USA before venturing on to form Ig Bo Lyn. He is supported by Jeff Macleod (The Cape May and Nina Nastasia) and Carl Davison (Hook and Eye).
