Hailing from a tiny rural village called Collon in Co. Louth, Ireland, Clare is an independent, award winning singer/songwriter, performing, touring and recording artist.
She was crowned 'ARTIST OF THE YEAR' at the 2022 Josie Music Awards (largest independent Music Awards globally) held at world renowned 'The Grand Ole Opry'.
Amongst an array of other accolades, Clare was previously crowned ‘FOLK/AMERICANA ARTIST OF THE YEAR, making it evident that she has been catching the eyes and ears of the industry with her unwavering storytelling and authentic sound.
Clare uses her platform to bring awareness on all mental health matters. She has been through a lot in her personal life and has battled with her own demons, so decided to release her latest EP called ‘Mercy’ in 2022, which has been helping her listeners with suicide prevention, addiction awareness and all things encompassing mental health. She plans to release a memoir in early 2023 which will give her listeners an insight as to why her songs are so real, raw and fueled with the need to help others. She wants to be a voice of inspiration and hope.
She also came back to faith at the end of 2020 and her music is now reflecting how she has become a conduit to her lord saviour Jesus Christ. Her faith has played a huge role in her healing journey and she plans to put her first Christian record out in 2023.
