ABOUT CLARA BOND + ‘OUT OF TOWNERS’
For fans of: The Shires, Alessia Cara, Ward Thomas, Kelsea Ballerini, Maddie and Tae.
Clara Bond is a country-pop artist from the South-West of England. Although so far, Clara has described herself as a pop artist, her songwriting style and experimentation with the blending of elements from different genres produces something that stands outside of traditional pop, and over the last year this has taken her in the direction of some of her country influences. Having had the good fortune to work with chart topping writers, Clara has made waves as a songwriter since the release of her first EP The Chase, which has pushed her to new levels of media presence. A busy couple of years has included appearances for The Telegraph, one of her songs being featured in a film at the Cannes Film Festival, and being invited to play the iconic stage at Ronnie Scott’s.
Travelling to London from her native Devon for gigs, writing sessions and media appearances has become second nature for Clara, all the while continuing to grow her fan base on YouTube and social media with cover songs, attracting the interest and support of Ryan Seacrest who described her as having “one of the best covers on YouTube”. To coincide with the release of her new EP Out Of Towners, Clara was invited to record and film an exclusive full band live version of the EP for BBC Introducing.
In her own words: “Every single person who had anything to do with this record is a close friend. This includes anyone who played on the record, anyone who filmed anything and all the campaign photos and website design. That’s why this project is so close to my heart; it’s a group effort from everyone that I love. We didn’t record this EP in a professional studio but in several locations, including a boathouse, a church, my own home and even a garden shed. Two of the songs on this record are my way of closing the book and getting closure on a relationship that I spent many years in, the other two songs are me moving on from that relationship. ‘Out Of Towners‘ was written during my trip to the States; the first time I had travelled by myself and feeling like a fish out of water – exactly what I needed. Love Can’t Stay is about the man I met whilst I was out there who made me feel a little more at home, but if you’ve heard the song, you know it was not meant to be!”
