Somehow it’s April already! We’re thrilled to announce the wonderful Claire Watts as our featured Artist of the Month. Claire is a shining talent based in beautiful Milltown Malbay on Ireland’s west coast.
Claire’s music is reminiscent of the landscape from which it comes. Her intense, emotional lyrics are cradled by lilting melodies and lush music. Her songs teeter between sweetness and nostalgia, familiarity and wildness.
Built on a foundation of traditional Irish music and a wide variety of musical training and influences throughout her career, Claire’s music is at once fresh and experienced. It is infused with a deep emotional undercurrent, which caused renowned Cork Singer-songwriter, John Spillane to remark that, “You’d have to have a heart of stone not to be moved by these songs.”
Her latest album, Landmark,was released in June 2018, and she is currently working on a new release for next year. Learn more about Claire on her website, and follow her on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter.
