Clare Sands Set for ‘Stella Fiesta’ Release

Cork based musician Clare Sands found a love for music very early in life having discovered an affinity for the fiddle at a young age. Since then, she has expanded her skillset to make herself a formidable classically trained multi-instrumentalist, composer, singer and songwriter.

With deep roots in Irish Traditional and folk music, Clare’s music has emanated from these family traditions. Combined with her love of jazz and blues,Clare shows a heavy appreciation for everything from The Rolling Stones and Nina Simone, to Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan.

Having released her debut album ‘Join​ Me at the Table’ in late 2016 followed by months of touring with various renowned Irish artists and a sell out album launch, Clare’s first single ‘Satisfy Me’ was met with critical acclaim, followed by title track ‘Join Me At The Table’,

She is now set to relea​se ‘Stella​​ Fiesta’​-​ an upbeat, energetic, multilingual summer single inspired by global travelling and world music. (Available to download on Itunes, CD Baby, Artist’s Website and to stream on Spotify, Youtube)

Having taken her music on the road, Clare has been writing and performing from the metropolitan paradise of Manhattan, to Guatemala’s green hills, to Parisian gypsy jazz clubs. ‘Stella​ Fiesta’​ demonstrates Clare’s love for language, culture, and musical diversity, and shows her audience that she is not afraid to take chances musically.
