Clare Means’ latest album, Sidewalk Astronomy, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts and #66 on the main iTunes all genres charts. The album is a cohesive patchwork of musings on life in Los Angeles, love, forgiveness and the recent loss of her estranged father.
Clare made a name for herself as one of LA’s most popular street performers. She built a dedicated following by being one of very few to play almost exclusively original music. While most depend on covers to stop foot traffic, Clare learned to work on her songwriting craft and challenged herself to capture audiences using her own songs. In 2015 Clare began live streaming her performances on Periscope. She became one of Periscope’s most watched musicians and made it onto the trending list multiple times and gained over 100,000 followers on the app. Clare has now started live streaming on many other platforms including Twitch, Facebook, TikTok, Youtube and Instagram.
Clare’s story and adventures in busking and livestreaming are the focus of an award winning documentary called “The Street Performer” that will be officially released on her youtube channel in August 2022. You can catch the release show at the Hotel Cafe on August 6th at 8pm.
Clare has been featured in many blogs and magazines including Billboard, No Depression, Pitchfork, American Songwriter, PopMatters, Buzzbands LA, and Digital Music News and in the top selling books “How To Make It In The New Music Business” Editions 1 and 2. You also can hear many of the songs from Sidewalk Astronomy on various NPR stations across the country. Follow Clare on Spotify and social media so you don’t miss the new album arriving in early 2023! Read more about her at claremeans.com
