Artist - Jennifer Clarke
Track 1 - All in my head
Track 2 - Drown
Bio A graduate of the Music, Management and Sound course at Ireland's own rock school - Coláiste Stiofáin Naofa - Jennifer has been writing for only two years and yet her music has already been met with critical acclaim and taken the airwaves by storm. Her debut single 'Right Back At The Start', which was launched by singer/songwriter Sinead Lohan, was play-listed by over twenty radio stations, including Today FM and RTE Radio 1. The single, produced by Declan Sinnott, was co-written by Jennifer and Chris Ahern. It immediately generated huge interest, resulting in her playing Special Guest to Ronan Keating at the Marquee, Cork last summer, at '02 in the Park', Dublin and securing a national distribution deal with RMG Chart Records where the single went straight to number 2 in the Bestsellers Chart. Jennifer's second release 'It's Alright' has outdone its predecessor with airplay and is now part of WLR FM's 'Power Play'. Jennifer is currently recording her debut album with Producer Bruce Brody (Pulp Fiction, Maria McKee, Patti Smith, U2 Elevation Tour) due for release in the autumn.
Her influences come from a wide range of music including artists from the seventies such as James Taylor, Carol King and Joni Mitchell, the eighties 'techno-era' such as Michael Jackson and George Michael and more recently Alison Krauss, Suzanne Vega and the Dixie Chicks.
Jennifer is no stranger to the stage and has been performing regularly for the past two years in venues such as The Lobby, Triskel Arts Centre, Cyprus Avenue, Cork City Hall, the Galway Film Festival, the Hilfiger Sessions in Crawdaddy, Dublin, the Marquee and 02 in the Park, Phoenix Park. Jennifer's single 'It's Alright' is available at Virgin Megastore and HMV, Cork and online at www.cdbaby.com
