CLARE MAGUIRE WILL BE LIVE IN-STORE AT ROUGH TRADE NOTTINGHAM, TO PERFORM TRACKS FROM NEW ALBUM 'STRANGER THINGS HAVE HAPPENED'.
MONDAY 30TH MAY, FROM 5PM-7PM.
THIS IS A FREE ENTRY IN-STORE PERFORMANCE, UPSTAIRS IN THE BAR AT ROUGH TRADE NOTTINGHAM. 5PM ONSTAGE.
'Clare Maguire's voice is a kind of blue. Not the muteness of cornflower blue, nor the sweetness of sky blue, instead, she sings in deep, dark melancholy blue. Blue like the middle of a Stevie Nicks ballad; blue like midnight in a foreign city; blue-black mascara tears smudged on a silk pillowcase. This is the kind of blue you earn, like a badge of honor, after surviving personal trauma. Those who've hit this low will hear a companion in the first note, those who haven't will wonder at its depth all the same.
Maguire is a recovering alcoholic and fights a continual battle to stay sober every single day. As of this year, she has been sober for five years. This is not something she tries to hide or sweep under the rug, in fact, it's the subject matter that underlies most of the songs on her new album, Stranger Things Have Happened, which is out in late May.
These songs are dark and blue and deep; they address addiction and the host of issues that surround it with fortitude and elegance. This record is Maguire's first fully-formed work as an artist in control of her own mind and body.'
FREE ENTRY - NO WRISTBAND/TICKET NEEDED.
THE NEW ALBUM 'STRANGER THINGS HAVE HAPPENED' WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE IN-STORE FROM FRIDAY 27TH MAY - PRE-ORDER OPEN NOW.

LIVE ONSTAGE AT 5PM.
