produced by Clair Reilly-Roe & Brian Rund, featuring Bakithi Kumalo on bass (Paul Simon), Todd Caldwell on organ/keys (Crosby, Stills & Nash) as well as various musicians Clair's met and played with at the legendary NYC venue, The Bitter End. The owner Kenny became a best friend and mentor through the years and recently passed away in 2015. Saying goodbye is bitter & sweet. Goodbye to New York. Goodbye to working in New York City nightlife. Goodbye to all the fears and doubts. Goodbye to friends. Goodbye Manhattan.
As the baby of three in a house of English-Trinidadian-Canadians, Clair developed her eccentric style inherently. Groomed on Macrobiotic food, poetry and a constant household soundtrack of Gregorian chants, it was obvious to all that Clair Reilly-Roe was well on her way to becoming...a bottle service waitress in New York City - after her stint as a professional snowboarder, of course. Armed with a stunning beauty, a head turning uniqueness and a performance style as riveting as her backstory, the music of Clair Reilly-Roe is ready for mass consumption. The industry is fixing its gaze on Clair. She is heavily listened to on Pandora radio. Page 6 singled her performance out at an exclusive party thrown by the son of icon Norman Mailer. Shortly after stealing the show opening for Lisa Marie Presley, the legendary Seth Justman from the J.Geils Band penned a song specifically for her to sing. A recent performance with CeeLo Green on Live with Kelly and Michael caught the eyes of millions and the buzz on Clair Reilly-Roe is undeniable. She is a beautiful story told in song and a must see for 2016!
