Australian-born, US-based singer-songwriter-actress, Clare Bowen, today announces that she will return home to play an extensive ten-date concert series around the country this July.

Just last year, Clare embarked on her debut Australian tour and completely sold out seven East Coast dates almost instantaneously. 2017 will see her take in some of the country’s premiere theatre venues, beginning at Adelaide’s Her Majesty’s Theatre on Monday 3rd July, and continuing through capital cities and regional centers alike, including stops at Tamworth’s Blazes on Tuesday 11th July and Toowoomba’s Empire Theatre on Thursday 13th July. 

Perhaps best known for her leading role as Scarlett O’Connor on the US prime-time TV series NASHVILLE, Clare Bowen is a ferocious and gifted performer, enthralling in the live arena.  

“The most magical thing about Clare is how she becomes the music - her body vibrates, she becomes swallowed up by the sound and the emotion - and it was transfixing to watch. After hearing her, you remember what it means to be alive.” – Scenestr 

She has performed at some of the world’s most iconic music venues, including Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, along with two sets at this year’s prestigious Sundance Music & Film Festival. This June will see Clare and some of her NASHVILLE co-stars hit the road as part of the Nashville In Concert tour through the UK and Ireland. 

Clare is currently juggling time in the studio recording her anticipated debut album, alongside her NASHVILLE filming commitments. Clare has been writing and recording with A-list producers on this project and hopes to release it this year. Earlier in the year, the starlet partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and released her first solo song. ‘Love Steps In’, penned by Clare’s fiancé Brandon Robert Young and the couple’s friend Justin Halpin, is a tribute to her younger brother, Timothy James Bowen, who spent all of 2016 fighting end-stage cancer. The beautiful song has touched many people around the world and is accompanied by a powerful music video which can be viewed here. Timothy is now in remission and will be opening the tour for Clare. 

Years before launching her career as a singer-songwriter, a young Clare Bowen was growing up in rural Australia, miles from the nearest city, writing down everything she felt, heard, saw and dreamed. “Music was my connection to the rest of the world,” she says. “I was brought up on my parents vinyl collection - everything from Vivaldi, to Elvis, to Dolly, to Springsteen, Edith Piaf and Etta James.”

Along the way, she established herself as an in-demand actress on both sides of the Atlantic, earning critical praise in the highly controversial Australian film The Combination, directed by David Field, and as the leading role of Wendla in the Sydney Theatre Company’s musical production of Spring Awakening.

Music lovers, don’t miss your chance to experience this captivating artist on her homecoming theatre tour this July!
