Clare Free

We recorded Clare's 3rd album Where Are  You Now?  which was released in February 2020.

This is what she said about the record:

"What an exciting time it is for me at the moment.  I can now reveal that my new album was produced and mixed by the world famous Richard Flack who is Robbie Williams' producer.  It was co-produced, and engineered, by the wonderful Bob Kidby in his stunning studio and mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios in London.  What a lucky, lucky girl I am. "
