Clare Maguire listens to all sorts of artists these days; they have only one thing in common. “They are true to themselves,” she says. This, more than any genre or sound or era, is all that matters to the 27-year-old singer-songwriter right now. “It’s a certain attitude that I’m really drawn to,” she explains, “and it really doesn’t matter what music it is, and it doesn’t matter who the person is. That’s the inspiration for me.”

This much is clear in Maguire’s new music. After a moment away from the spotlight, the Brummie chanteuse is back in full force – still with that amazing, swooping, haunting voice, but with more raw, fragile vulnerability.

She posted a series of songs online herself over the past year to high praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Fader and Rookie. These beautifully fragile tracks also caught the attention of Christopher Bailey, head designer at Burberry who invited Clare to perform at multiple runway shows across the world, a creative relationship which continues to flourish.

Now Clare is poised and ready to release her brand new album, Stranger Things Have Happened with brand new single, ‘Elizabeth Taylor’ the first song to be heard from the album.
