“Coming from being a songwriter myself, I have had numerous situations in recording studios or with producers that felt defeating and exhausting. I felt my creative ideas being dissolved into those of the person helping me, and often was ridden with anxiety afterward feeling like my sound was not authentic.

Through these experiences I learned what kind of feeling I would like to give singer-songwriters when they come to me to bring their creation to life. My goal is to create a space of comfort and understanding where your creative idea will be supported in its true form” – Clara.
