Clare Maguire to release Let's Begin
Universal Republic Records proudly announces the U.S. signing of Clare Maguire. The 22-year-old Irish phenom will release her anxiously awaited debut album via UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC in spring 2011. Blending bombastic bluesy emotion, seductive crooning and pop theatricality, there's no one quite like CLARE MAGUIRE.
CLARE MAGUIRE vocally channels Kate Bush and Annie Lenox, while igniting a fire that's decidedly hers alone. One of her songs, "Ain't Nobody," has been making waves across the pond and is set for release in the U.S. digitally on October 26th. The song segues from a synth swell into an orchestral hook that paves the way for pop's future. With a chorus that palpitates like a heartbeat, "Ain't Nobody" stretches to divine heights on the wings of this talented young singer's voice.

CLARE MAGUIRE is an artist to keep an eye on… Based on the strength of her demos, she garnered 1.5 million hits on MySpace. Jarvis Cocker, Plan B and a host of other producers and artists have offered songs to her, and she's caught both Rick Rubin and Jay-Z's attention. There's a flurry of buzz from tastemakers and fans alike for the simple reason that she has a voice and songwriting style that can change music.
For UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC, this signing follows in the footsteps of other incredible success stories such as Florence + the Machine and Amy Winehouse, and the label's excitement for CLARE MAGUIRE is equally uncontainable.
NME describes her sound best as "A mainstream-leaning, electro flecked amalgam of Eurythmics, Kate Bosh, Fleetwood Mac and Florence + the Machine."
Currently, CLARE MAGUIRE is on a UK tour supporting Hurts and Plan B, and she'll be officially crossing the pond for her formal introduction to the U.S later this year. "Ain't Nobody" simply sets the stage for her arrival, and it's going to be a big one.
The U.S. will soon see there ain't nobody like CLARE MAGUIRE...
