Born to farming and ranching entrepreneurs in southeast Colorado near the Oklahoma panhandle, Clare’s roots run deep in the heart of Dust Bowl country. Working cattle, hauling water, driving tractors and trucks, were a part of everyday life growing up. Through the many hours spent behind the wheel of a John Deere and the miles burned up hauling water to cattle, Clare dreamed of creating her own music.
Achieving All-State basketball and volleyball recognition in high school, Clare’s chance to fully pursue her dream came with college. After a brief stent in Texas, she relocated to Nashville, paying her way through Belmont University by driving a silage truck for harvest near home during every academic break she could.
After graduating with honors she signed her first publishing deal as a songwriter and hasn’t looked back. Collaborating with hit songwriters such as Terry McBride, Brice Long, Hillary Lindsey, Dylan Altman, Angelo (Kings of Leon) Liz Rose and many more, Clare is quickly carving out a reputation as one of Nashville’s most promising up and coming writers.
An artist who is involved with every aspect that goes into the creative process of making records, from writing her debut single with co-writer and producer Ben West, to playing guitars on the record and singing background vocals, to input on mixing, Clare’s music is a true representation of all the things that make her who she is. A farm girl with a vision and sound forged from life experiences, combined with the work ethic and passion for her dream of music.
