As an artist, Clare loves to collaborate;
Recently she has joined melodic rock/pop band Blind Fiction as a keyboardist and backing singer where they have played at The Old Fire Station Carlisle, headlined The Brickyard Carlisle and played a band set at Within The Walls Fest and MileCastle66 Festival.
When supporting a band or playing the headliner, Clare endeavours to play mostly original songs and to engage with her audience as they share in music and in the community it creates together.
