Bio

Clara Benin is a Filipino singer/songwriter. Her music is characterized by a laidback and enchanting vocal style accompanied by an acoustic guitar. 

In early 2015, a world-wide chain coffee shop signed up Clara for a music tour where she was able to promote and release her debut album, Human Eyes.  

Clara then released an EP titled Riverchild that she produced, wrote, and mixed in November of the same year.  

On July 29 and 30 of 2016, she had her first ever solo concert “Coming Home”. Thirty minutes after the concert was first announced, tickets were sold out.  

After a year-long hiatus from performing live, Clara released a single titled “Parallel Universe” in November 2017. 

In September 2018, Clara represented the Philippines at the Singaporean multi-artist festival "Music Matters". Two months later, she was asked to represent the Philippines again in One Voice: The Best of ASEAN Performing Arts, also in Singapore.  

In October 2018, she released her latest single "Wrestle". In the same month, she also had a successful back-to-back concert with fellow indie band Ben&Ben.   

Apart from her solo projects, Clara has also lent her music to TV commercials and independent films, making her one of the biggest independent musicians in the Philippines.
