Biography

The melodies are sweet and singable and the lyrics are pages falling out of a tattered, well traveled diary. Clair Reilly-Roe writes story songs, funny songs, love songs- songs about changing and letting go, about beginnings, endings, but above all else, the triumph of love.

As the child of real-deal hippies, folk music formed the foundation of Reilly-Roe’s inspiration- from Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Carol King, and the Beatles- the music was always turned up loud. However, it was a career as a pro snowboarder that ultimately led her to a commitment to music. A knee injury forced Reilly-Roe off the mountain and she ended up trading her Burton for a Gibson to follow big dreams of “making it” in the big apple.

Arriving from Canada with only a single contact, Reilly-Roe “was very green,” she admits. “I only knew one person, producer Tony Black , who has worked with a number of other Canadian artists. Luckily he was a good person to know and we have done some great work over the years together.” Their most recent collaboration is Clair Reilly-Roe’s debut album— “Island in the City” — a laid back, pop/reggae record, consisting of 5 originals and 6 covers, ranging from U2, the Police, to Daniel Lanois.

Reilly-Roe also cultivated connections from her early New York day jobs, turning a stint in the restaurant business into a long-time collaboration. “I met one of my writing partners, Kobie Powell (former member of US3) while I was a waitress in a uptown club.
