In the span of one week, the Vancouver Canucks traded away three popular players: defenceman Kevin Bieksa, goalie Eddie Lack, and forward Zack Kassian. In fact, we had this song written for just Bieksa and Lack when we found out that Kassian had been traded…while we were preparing to shoot this video. Thus, we were able to add him albeit at the last minute. To pay tribute to these three players, we went with a Boyz II Men classic: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday. This is actually the third Boyz II Men song we’ve covered for the...Click here to read more.

The Vancouver Canucks are back in the NHL playoffs and thus we are thrilled to present our Canucks Playoff Anthem: Something Big. It’s based on the original song by Shawn Mendes. I’m joined by my regular collaboration partners: the wonderful and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. They never cease to amaze me with their skills…in this video check out how they harmonize effortlessly while doing syncopated clapping…it’s NUTS! We’re excited about a deep playoff run for the Canucks. Something big is happening! Go Canucks Go! Go! Go Canucks Go! Go! Go Canucks Go!Play for the Cup you might win...Click here to read more.
Just in time for Christmas, Marie (@mariehui) and I proudly present to you a special compilation of custom Canucks Christmas carols. Hear new takes on old classics like Hansen the Honey Badger (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer), Radim Vrbata (Feliz Navidad), Get it Bo!

For the start of the Vancouver Canucks’ 2014-2015 NHL season, I wrote a song about likely their strongest position on the team: the goaltenders. I’ve written songs about Canucks goalies in the past, including End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu) and Against All Odds (Luongo’s Lament) so I thought I would continue the tradition.Click here to read more.
Last week, Canucks’ President Trevor Linden named Jim Benning (affectionately referred to as “Jimmy B” for the purposes of our video) as the 11th General Manager in franchise history. As soon as the hire was officially announced, a few of my Twitter friends had song suggestions for me. But Steve May went one step further: he wrote an entire song and sent the lyrics to me. Thus, I proudly present to you my latest Clay’s Canucks Composition: “Jimmy B” an ode to new General Manager Jim Benning to the tune of The Beatles’ classic “Let it Be”. As always, I’m...Click here to read more.
After a tumultuous and unpredictable season (and off-season), Roberto Luongo is back in the crease as the Vancouver Canucks’ undisputed number one goaltender. There is no doubt that the past 18 months have taken its toll on Bobby Lu. Thus, I proudly present to you Luongo’s Lament to the tune of Phil Collins’ hit Against All Odds. And I’m so proud to welcome my friends Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao as the featured vocalists. You’ll see that they are lovely, talented, and amazing. With Cory Schneider returning with his new team – the New Jersey Devils – on Tuesday, I...Click here to read more.
After a shaky start to their current six-game road trip, I thought I would bring in a ringer to help me with latest CCC in an attempt to encourage, inspire and affirm the Canucks. Thus, I’m blessed welcome my good friend and anthem singer for the Vancouver Whitecaps FC: the beautiful and talented Marie Hui (http://www.mariehui.com). We put together three songs that touch on the three positional facets of the game: our defencemen, our forwards, and our goaltenders. For the D, we change up the words to Michael Jackson’s hit “Man in the Mirror” and wind up with “Men at...Click here to read more.
