Like music? Discover Clara Chung

| June 30, 2010

I had the pleasure of listening to Clara Chung live at my friend Dave Beza’s 30th birthday party at El Dorado Cocktail Lounge this past Sunday. Suffice it to say, she’s my new favorite vocalist.

From what I hear and can see by the way she tags her music posted on bandcamp.com, she classifies most of her music as “pop” and “folk.”

I’d simply classify it as “pretty.” And maybe, “she-can-make-me-cry.” Why? Because, she actually did make me cry with her cover of Blackbird in the video below.

My favorite of her original songs right now is “Offbeat” because of the lyrics. I’m particularly taken by the lyrics “I’ll be down / You’ll be my offbeat” and “Waltz to our 3/4.” The poet in me loves the commitment and clever use of fresh music metaphors throughout the entire song. Seriously, this song almost made me cry again. She strikes a chord with me, this one.

Watch for her debut solo album coming out later this year!
