“Clare left us jumping over the moon with tonight’s gorgeous and endearing performance and the memory of tonight will be with us for a long time.” Faster Louder
More than 250,000 people have seen Clare Bowditch live and been enraptured. Most fall in love with her powerful lyrics, fascinating instrumentation and amazing humour.
She’s made three awesome albums, won heaps of awards (including Best Female ARIA in 2006, Yen Young Women of the Year in Music), and most importantly, is absolutely cherished by her fans, who are involved in every step of her creative process.
Bringing a unique and rare show to the House Cabaret season, Clare will be the first in the And Friends series for 2010 which gives established artists the chance to present an evening of song with invited musicians they have either collaborated with or would just like the opportunity to jam with.
Joined by the famous and the infamous, the informal and spontaneous style of the show offers a unique insight into a musician through their connections.
Performing with three backing singers known collectively as her Ladygarden, Clare guarantees the intimacy, story-telling and humour of her solo shows, combined with the complex vocal arrangements found on her recordings.
Apart from playing old favourites, Clare will showcase new songs from the forthcoming album Modern Day Addictions which she describes as “upbeat songs about serious and important issues related to living in the modern world and being human”.
Sydney Opera House audiences will be the first in the country to catch these songs live, including the first two new singles Bigger Than The Money and The Start of War.
The always entertaining Henry Wagons and new a capella trio Aluka will provide support.
Modern Day Addictions will be released August 31.
