OF WEEK 141 alternative music:
Claire were a guy her music might be considered emo, because she
sings about her emotions to driving rock songs that remind you
of Dashboard Confessional, Brand New, Switchfoot, Evanescence,
and other bands gracing the airwaves. Except girls always sing
about their emotions, don't they? You know, "Ooh baby, I
miss you, I need you, when are you coming back?" and other
submissive whimpering. But girls almost never get truly emotional.
It's just not "pretty". "The intensity of the music
needs to fit the emotion in the song," Claire keeps telling
people. If someone says, "I want to scream," then why
the heck dont they?
Some fans who have only heard acoustic versions of her songs over
the past 2 1/2 years see her as a sensitive singer-songwriter.
Well, yes. "Oh, you should arrange your songs like Jewel,
with acoustic guitars and some light drums, because I love your
voice and your great songs. The rock music would just ruin it."
Um, no. Girls just want to have fun, blah, blah, blah. But stories
don't always have happy endings, do they? Claire's songs always
have hope, even when life sucks. And fans who have heard her CD,
or heard her at The Whisky on Sunset Strip in West Hollywood,
know that she likes to play driving, sweaty, in-your-face rock.
There's a saying in the record industry: if you're checking out
a new guy band, you listen to their music first and then look
at their picture to see if they've showered this year. If you're
checking out a girl band, you look at their picture first and
then, if they look great, you listen to their music. Nice picture,
Some details: Claire wrote her first song when she was just 3
1/2 years old. Really. Her baby brother died right after he was
born. The chorus? "Johnathan, Johnathan, come back to life,
'cause we really miss you." Eerie. She plays the bass, guitar,
piano and violin. She played violin in a youth symphony. She sang
in an international touring choir for five years. She's written
dozens of songs, a number of which have been played on broadcast
and internet radio stations. She's played all over L.A., including
The Whisky, The Rainbow Room, and the Hard Rock Café. She's
an expert with ProTools. She grew up in a family of musicians
listening to Nirvana, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, the Beatles, the Beach
Boys, The Who, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, and many others. Some
of her favorite bands right now are Brand New, Three Days Grace,
Eve6, Finger 11, Linkin Park, Muse and Slipknot
Oh, and she lives in Southern California, and she just turned
20 years old.
So, guys, she's just like you. Only she's a girl. Girls, she sings
about things you've been trying to find the words for, unafraid
of what others think. Everyone: why haven't you heard her yet?
