Singer Claire Ridgely has released her latest single “California”.
Singer Claire Ridgely has, over the past two years, generated 30 million streams on Spotify as a feature artist. This success has allowed her to work with other electronic producers such as Robotaki, Said the Sky and Pat Lok.
Claire tells us “I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with such talented artists, but I’m even more excited to kick off my solo ting”. On September 7th of this year, Claire released her first single called “Days Under the Sun”. “California” is her second solo release.
Although “California” seems like a shining beacon of hope for creatives, many artists have been lost along the way. “California” is about deciding to follow your heart regardless of a fear of falling short of your dreams. Claire confesses “I often find myself dreaming of the wonders this place could do for me as a musician”.
“California” was produced by Montreal duo Pops & Poolboy. Claire talks of its inception “after a dinner party and a couple drinks, the three of us went back to the studio to jam. We didn’t have a particular plan or inspiration in mind but we were all in the right headspace to come up with something good”. The “California” music video was directed by Mafer Lopez.
Claire concludes “I hope people take away a sense of easiness and determination from “California”. The odds are stacked and the road is long, but I’m determined to see the sun”. And we wish her well with two superb singles already behind her, the future looks ‘bright’.
