ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Passionate and powerful, Clare Diane's outstanding debut album "Runaway" captures her original bluesy rock style and brings out the fiery depth of her sizzling live performances.

Whether playing with her own group or the Arrow 93FM Radio band, singer/songwriter Clare Diane knows how to rock the house. She has played notable venues from Los Angeles to Europe including The House of Blues and CBS Studios, and has shared the stage with the incomparable Beach Boys, Berlin, Kool & the Gang, Al Stewart and Stephen Bishop. As a versatile session singer, Clare has recorded both for Paramount Television and independent songwriters & producers.

"Runaway" is on the 46th Annual Grammy Awards nominating ballot for Best New Artist, Best Album and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Child on a Ferris Wheel Ride."

"Runaway With Me," the title song from her album, is featured on the new motion picture soundtrack "Spin, Shoot & Run" directed by Isaac Eaton ("Shadow Hours") starring Ione Skye, Samuel Ball and Marisa Coughlan.

On "Runaway," a collaborative effort with Producer Gwenael Barre, Clare captivates listeners with her emotional vocals, soulful lyrics and beautiful melodies. With a combination of a wide vocal range and fresh style, Clare moves seamlessly from heartfelt ballads to all-out, uninhibited rock.

The unique vocal and instrumental arrangements led by guitar, keyboards and percussion complement this impressive album, adding to the pleasure of discovering this compelling and talented singer/songwriter.

A native of blues capital Chicago, Clare has studied music since childhood and plays keyboards, guitar and trumpet. A graduate of UCLA Film and Television school, she has also worked for Lucasfilm and as a producer on several hit television series at Paramount and Twentieth Century Fox. She is a member of Los Angeles Women in Music (LAWIM) and ASCAP.

Clare Diane currently tours with her band "Planet Clare" presenting her original "Runaway" program, as well as "Rock All Night," an energetic classic rock show and "Calling All Angels," an exciting tribute to female artists Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, Aretha Franklin, Heart, Stevie Nicks, Pretenders, Annie Lennox, Bonnie Raitt, Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow and many more.

Barry Lowe

Great vocals, emotional instrumentals, fantastic production.
It is refreshing to review a CD that is so well produced that I can make out all of the words and enjoy the instrumentals. The lyrics are meaningful and fit the music perfectly. When listening to this CD shades of Linda Rhonstat, Janis Joplin and Laura Nyro come to mind. Powerful!

Eyal Sher

This is one hot rock ablum! Highly recommended!
I've been a fan of Clare Diane forever, thoroughly enjoying her original, powerful interpretations of classic rock hits, from Janis Joplin and Grace Slick to the Pretenders, Stevie Nicks and Sheryl Crow. Her first original album is everything her fans could ever wish for, wonderful lyrics, great melodies, rocking tunes and most of all, her one of a kind bluesy rock vocals. A great addition to your rock blues collection and a great present for anyone who loves to discover new bands and singers before everyone else!

Clare Diane’s “Runaway” is all over the place - in a very good Way!
My introduction to Clare Diane’s music occurred outdoors, under a sound system and other circumstances that, to say the least, were not the most ideal for fully enjoying music. Despite all that, Diane’s solid and assured vocals rang out impressively. An original tune she sang -- “An Angel in the Sky” - caught my attention, and set me on the path of fandom that’s inevitably followed by anyone who comes across this hidden gem of a vocalist.

Diane’s voice puts me in mind of an Emmylou Harris or a Joni Mitchell -- there’s even traces of Loreena McKinnett and Laura Nyro. Yes, she feels right at home with a country-blues number (“Cry, I So Lonely”), a soft and pretty Joni-like retro-tune (“Rebel in Disguise”) -- a ballad, a rock guitar-driven number, but I was also pleasantly surprised by her clever, reggae-inspired, flip of the Stray Cats’ script (“Perhaps We Were Cats”). In a quite cool way, “Runaway With Me” also has a retro-feel, poignant and cliché-free storytelling, appealing harmonies, and a timely twist of a message.

The soothing “Angel in the Sky” is accented by smart guitar and allusions to spiritual escape under the wings of a higher being from whom answers to the world’s problems are addressed. And “In the Ocean,” with its too abrupt conclusion, will leave you wishing it was a much longer jam, that the guitar had been allowed to wallow on a bit more, that Diane’s fluid vocals, indeed like a soothing and engulfing ocean, had been free to flow far beyond their four minute mark.

Like “How Could I” -- with all the earnestness of an early Linda Ronstadt number -- all the tracks are instantly catchy and accessible, and the more-than-capable musicians fill out the arrangements with a kind of synergy that bespeaks experience and warmth with the singer -- and a true fondness for playing with her.

If you come across Claire Diane’s CD, don't be thrown off by the jewel case’s exterior art; neither cover does the lovely Diane nor the alluring songs inside full justice. Contained within are compelling, self-penned tunes that resonate with a refreshing substance and likeability. I’ve played Diane’s CD almost daily since getting it. “Runaway” is definitely an effort that deserves not to be slept on.
