‘ON THE STREETS’ – A NEW CHARITY SINGLE FOR CORK SIMON COMMUNITY
The song ‘On the Streets’ forms part of a collection of Clare’s dramatic new music she recorded in the States with producer Jon Evans of Brick Hill Studios, Orleans, Massachusetts, USA. Described by Clare as a meditation on homelessness, the song is conversely uplifting as it reflects on the value of human dignity and advocates empathy for those who suffer amongst us on our streets. With a soaring vocal, Clare gives a powerful voice to the unspoken thoughts and feelings a homeless person may have. “My world is breaking is the love you are making not going to save a soul like me / I lying here shaking in the time you’re not taking and so our world will be, hiding empathy” (Lyrics, ‘On the Streets’).
Following Clare’s 2014 “exquisite debut Shelter” (Colm O’Hare, Hot Press) Clare is set to release her new album Outside early next year which will include the single ‘On the Streets’. Like ‘On the Streets’ the songs can be haunting yet joyous, intense yet playful, passionate yet sensuous. They are songs that examine the polar opposites of life with cinematic clarity and beauty.
