Clare Maree Bowen was born on an island in the middle of the Pacific and is somehow still not dead.
Years before landing the role of Scarlett O’Connor on the CMT/HULU TV series Nashville, and launching her career as a singer / songwriter, little Clare Bowen was growing up in rural Australia, miles from the nearest city, writing down everything she felt, heard, saw and dreamed.
“Music was my connection to the rest of the world,” she says. As a child who spent more time around animals than people, she often “didn’t do social very well… but music is the universal language. I felt no barrier there. I was brought up on my parents’ vinyl collection – everything from Paul Simon to Gilbert & Sullivan. Vivaldi, to Elvis, to Dolly, to Springsteen, Edith Piaf and Etta James.”
Clare resides in a rip in the fabric of reality, close to Nashville, Tennessee, with Brandon, a small army of rescued dragons, and the occasional unicorn.
