Ephemera is Claire Bradshaw’s Album

This artist’s compositional style fascinated me a lot as it winks at the past but manages to be modern at the same time.

This music took me back in time and the 70s with its colors and that peculiar energy filling my body and eyes.

While listening to these beautiful tunes, I imagined driving a Volkswagen Westfalia through the endless American roads and for a moment I felt free.

Claire Bradshaw proves to have a great deal of compositional experience behind her and her artistic vision is solid and mature.

I liked all the tracks on Ephemera, a journey through folk, and alternative rock that awakens your most irreverent and wild spirit.

A great find that I recommend to everyone.

Ephemera is Claire Bradshaw’s Album

Claire Bradshaw started her music career as a small 7-year-old with a large cello. Despite her aversion to practising, she managed to pass auditions for the Leicestershire Schools youth orchestra, and regularly performed the classics at the famous De Montfort Hall (a venue also graced by The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Pink Floyd).

Inspired by her beloved Beatles, she swapped her cello for an acoustic guitar aged 14. It was possibly the worst acoustic guitar ever made, but she practised it every day. A year later she got a Hohner Arbor electric guitar for Christmas, and started her first band – their debut gig was playing Squeeze covers at the school assembly.

She went on to play synths, rhythm guitar and bass for various bands around Nottingham UK, and Toronto, Canada. After a long hiatus working in other creative areas (including a stint working as a woefully underpaid voiceover artist and background actor), she returned to her first love, music.

Claire’s musical influences include a mix of 60s-70s rock, pop and psychedelia, folk, prog, early electronica and 80s indie, plus the classical music of her childhood. All music is performed, recorded and produced by Claire at home – wherever that may be.

Her debut album Stories That Never Happened released February 2022; she collaborated with DIY music legend R. Stevie Moore on their November 2022 album Five Stars. Claire’s second solo album Ephemera was released February 3, 2023.

Fun facts: Claire is left-handed, a redhead and a Gemini, which explains a lot.
