Million Pebble Beach
Improbable stories and poetry songs on piano in the antifolk / indie pop / singer-songwriter style.
Claire weaves magical tales and catchy melodies around flying giants, electric moons, astronomy, elephants, tigers, burned down towns, and Miles, her cocker spaniel.
She is a popular regular on the Portsmouth and Southsea musical circuit and performed at Portsmouth's 2019 Victorious Festival - the largest metropolitan festival in the UK.
Her career in the space industry, her love of the coast and of dreaming up impossibilities inspire her musical work.
Million Pebble Beach began in 2018 and the first album "The Adjacent Impossible" will be released early 2020. It was recorded and produced by Dom Reynolds in Portsmouth https://www.domreynolds.com/
The first single from the album "The Elephant" was released 1st February 2020 onto all streaming platforms.

"A relaxing voice and an atmospheric sound. It's very unusual - I like it!"

"...more than worthy of a spot on your radar. Melodies which are as catchy yet artfully-inspired aren’t ambled across every day."
