EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: CC Clarke talks to CelebMix about her musical career

Whilst it may not be evident from the outset beauty influencer CC Clarke’s real passion has always been singing and she’s been developing her craft for over a decade. We caught up with CC to chat everything from concert outfits to her inspirations.

Most people will know you as a beauty influencer, what prompted you to turn to creating music? Or was it something you’d always wanted to pursue?I have been a singer-songwriter for over 10 years. My end goal from day one was always to continue my journey as a musician for sure. I have only been know as an influencer in makeup and beauty for the past three years … it’s another expression of my creativity as an artist. So, I haven’t stopped doing music behind the scenes however the encouragement I received when I pushed out my singing videos to my audience was so overwhelming, I knew I couldn’t stop until I released my own music and show all of my followers my true passion.

What type of music do you like to listen to in your free time?

I love a soulful voice and I love discovering underground artists too… I am currently obsessed with Billie Eilish, Khalid, Jorja Smith, and Nao, to name a few .. reminding me that jazzy vibes can be current and fresh.

How would you describe your sound?

I’d say it’s a mix of soul/pop. ‘Singy’ songs … haha if that makes sense. A cool beat and killer chords.   

Has music always played an important part in your life?

Absolutely, from the day I learnt every word from Britney’s albums to performing in the west end in musical theatre. I am drawn to music and performing and physically can’t function without it.

Do you hope to perform on stage? We bet your outfits would be amazing!

Ah, thank you! I love to perform on stage! The nerves are real but shows are already underway and I’m loving it!

What plans do you hope to pursue in the future?

I would love to tour, and have a feature.. Film some epic music videos and bring out an album.. mainly continuing to inspire through my creativity.

What’s your go-to concert outfit?

Something BRIGHT! To be honest, I’m a chameleon when it comes to my ever changing looks – I love to switch up my makeup, fashion, and hair colour frequently but it will always stand out from the crowd.
