Clara Waidley is a poignant singer-songwriter carving their own pathway into a decaf rock n roll world. Clara masters walking the line between gallows humor and genuine optimism. A wanderer at heart, Clara has most recently lived in Savannah, Georgia after a stint in Nashville. With roots in Michigan and Southern California, the young surfer takes her guitar with her to perform on the road. Her music was born in her childhood bedroom, but after busking on road trips and gathering a following of 134.8K followers on TikTok, Clara’s sun-soaked music has found a global audience.
Her forthcoming album “summer 4 ever” will be released in March 2023 by E. Broad Records. Fans of Mazzy Star, Phoebe Bridgers, and Japanese Breakfast will be drawn to the dreamy sound tinged with grunge, as well as the storytelling. “I like making up stories. I’m someone who loves feeling like I’m in the song, and I feel like people can live through these stories,” says Clara.
