Denton, Texas artist Claire Morales' 2017 is shaping up to be busy. Having followed Claire for the past few years, it seems busy is how she likes it. When she's not working on her own material, she's teaming up with a who's who of Denton area artists covering many classic tunes. And right now, she and her band are putting the finishing touches on their highly anticipated 2nd full length album. We've been told there will be plenty of rock and roll guitars to go along with Claire's chameleon like vocals. Then there's been talk of taking that new material on the road. And if that isn't enough, she and frequent collaborator Jena Pyle of Sundae Crush will be releasing an EP, Wrong Ones.
All that hard work has paid off, she and her band are playing an official showcase at SXSW this year in what could be her breakout moment.
A few weeks back, Claire and I spoke of our favorite tracks of 2016. The official Aimless Skylarking favorite songs of 2016 can be found here. Here are Claire's favorites.
