ABOUT THE ARTISTS
CLARE BOWEN - www.clarebowenofficial.com
Before landing the iconic role of Scarlett O’Connor on the ABC/CMT/Hulu TV series “NASHVILLE”, and launching her career as a singer/songwriter, Clare Bowen was growing up in rural Australia. Bowen heard her first broadcast of the Grand Ole Opry on the wireless in her grandad’s kitchen and soon after, her classical vocal coach paused one of their lessons to comment on the “country lilt” that had naturally crept into Bowen’s voice. It would be another decade before she’d duet with heavyweights like Zac Brown and Vince Gill, recording songs with GRAMMY-winning producers like T-Bone Burnett and Buddy Miller who became her mentors. She released an eponymous album and performed before sold-out crowds in the US, UK, Germany and Australia. She also earned a coveted spot on Sugarland’s “Still The Same” tour and toured live with the “NASHVILLE” cast, selling out London’s The O2.
Alongside the spotlight, Clare is no stranger to the darker, more frightening side of the human experience. A pediatric cancer survivor, she was given just two weeks to live upon receiving a shocking cancer diagnosis at age four. With the strength of her family behind her, she survived a grueling chemotherapy regimen and is now known around the world as a beautiful ray of sunshine who leads with her heart, able to communicate and translate emotions whether on stage or on screen.
Now half of the duo known as BOWEN * YOUNG, she and her husband, Brandon Robert Young are releasing music that masterfully delves into the depths of ferocious love, heart-breaking loss and steadfast hope. They have dubbed the music “Cinematic Americana”, and their debut album will be released in 2023 while two songs from the project – “Skeletons” and “Dangerous Love” – are already released globally and available everywhere.

after delivering 54 original songs once a week for 54 straight weeks.
