Glass Treehouses has a beauty and simplicity all its own. Solo pieces of Clare’s bright – yet haunting – voice, she accompanies herself on guitar and piano. There are reflections on some of life’s journeys, there is the magic of the woods in which she finds elves, fairies and nymphs, humorous yarns, tall stories and telephones that never ring, no matter how long you sit by them!
These popular songs have been performed at both public venues and in Hospitals. Glass Treehouses is a favorite at the Oakland Children’s Hospital, CA, although originally was only ever performed in bars and concerts in public. Somehow there is a magic that resides in us and recognizes itself as the songs pass through our travels of homesickness, love and getting to know ourselves.
These songs are related to the intimacy of the journey of life. Quirky, touching, simple and direct – they will keep you listening and quietly contemplating your life in a way you might not have before… all carried into your heart by her voice and her sweet intention.
