Stories in Sound

Clare Kelly grew up listening to storytellers like Springsteen and Stevie Nicks who have played an influential role in shaping her signature sound.

Hailing from Leeds, Clare has received massive support from UK television and radio including BBC Introducing and Yorkshire Music Collective following the release of her ‘left field pop and soul’ debut EP Elusive Yusef. Having spent a considerable amount of time travelling and performing overseas, Clare has many tales to tell through her emotive and often brutally honest lyrics. For as long as Clare can recall, she has been inspired by the ocean and aquatic creatures. Now, Clare Kelly aims to offer something different and unique to her fans with her soothing 'mer-folk' music.

For fans of Angel Olsen, Antony & The Johnsons and London Grammar, Clare Kelly’s voice and her new meditative single ‘Breathe’ is one that needs to be heard, especially in the current anxiety inducing global climate. 

New single Breathe out now on all platforms.
