Clara Tracey was born and raised in Co. Fermanagh. She recently returned to Ireland after a seven year sojourn in Paris where she swapped her legal career for a job in a Latin quarter jazz cafe. Her sound is infused with classical, jazz, trip-hop and prog-rock; her heroes Amy Winehouse, Nick Drake, Freddie Mercury and Erik Satie.
In her music Clara seeks to transcend the realms of the ethereal and surreal, letting each piano key embrace the subtlety of human emotion, each lyric finding the space between the fragile and the feral, the innocent and the wild.
