Bio

Following the success of Clea’s debut album Vermillion in 2018, Clea has since won Queensland’s song of the year for her hit single Dreaming, performed a heart-rending Triple J’s Like A Version and played shows around the country. Clea’s creative passion expresses itself through song, video, fashion and captivating live performances.

As a conscious consumer, Clea is passionate about preserving and enriching her natural environment. When not involved in music, attending to the plants and animals within her living space acts as a cathartic and important means of self-preservation.

“I am so grateful to have an outlet which enables me to express my inner dialogue and share a vision of love, compassion and connection to this earth”

Clea’s music is a collection of moments, a living-breathing document of life’s rich pageant. Never wanting to repeat the same thing twice, Clea sees constant renewal an integral aspect of her creativity and life, and therefore finds it hard to confine to one sound.

Having forged a creative partnership with her partner Alistar, the two work out of a self built studio located near Boonah in South East QLD. Clea produces whirling compositions that take turns at every corner and stay true to the emotion of the song in its initial conception.

2020 sees Clea emerging with a re-focused vision, a sophomore album in her sights and a renewed sense of independence and longing to act as a positive creative force.

Lyrically, Cher's 'Believe' walked so Clea's 'Soft Blow To The Head' could run. Self-assured and empowering.

Ahhhhh, this is beautiful. Visceral, visual songwriting that draws you closer to your speakers.

When does Unearthed get emojis? Coz this one is [baby angel] [sparkles] [love heart in a bow] and maybe [croissant] for that dreamy, catch-you-off-guard lyric.
