Clara Cecilia Atkins

Clara studied music at Bath Spa University specialising in jazz voice, and over the past ten years has performed in many venues in Bath including Green Park Brasserie, Moles, The Holburne Museum and Bath Abbey. She regularly appears as a guest vocalist in the popular 20th Century Foxes Cabaret events at Chapel Arts. Often likened to Ella Fitzgerald, Clara takes inspiration from the greats as well as contemporary vocalists including Liane Carroll and Clare Teal. Known for her clear and expressive tone, Clara performs with emotion and a touch of drama, bringing the music of the American Songbook to life.

She recently performed to two sell-out audiences with the Gorgeous Big Horns Big Band at Wiltshire Music Centre and Chipping Sodbury Music Society.

As well as singing with her jazz band, Clara is a classical soloist, performing with Cantamus Chamber Choir and Freshford Singers. She also runs Clarity Community Choir who rehearse in Bath and Trowbridge.
