"Clare Maguire is an irish singer-songwriter from Birmingham,England. Dropping out of school at the tender age 17, and worked tirelessly at various pubs, coffee shops and saving enough money to move England. She then started her career by posting most of her work on myspace and generating an amazing 1.5 million views.
By age of 20 she was signed to Polydor records – and began work on her solo album. Meeting up with great producers such as Rick Rubin and Jay-Z gave her the confidence she needed to pursue her career. Both producers commented that she was poised for stardom and exhumed star qualities.
Her influences includes a myriad of styles from folk rhythms, to celtic singing all the way to pop influenced tunes.
Songs on ’Light After Dark’ are inspired by everything from the death of Michael Jackson (’The Last Dance’) to the magic of childhood (’The Happiest Pretenders’) or the loneliness of her first few months in the capital (the uplifting, gospel-inflected ’Break These Chains’), these are torch songs for the 21st century, both completely contemporary and utterly timeless.
You’ll hear mournful echoes of the Irish folk music Clare grew up with on this album, hints of all the artists that influenced her: the Celtic vibes of Sinead O’Connor, the powerful vocals of Annie Lennox, the quirky innovations of Kate Bush, the soul of Johnny Cash. But mostly, you’ll hear an iconic new singer with a sound that’s all her own. As she’s always said, it’s all about the voice.
The first single from the album is The Last Dance."
