the five-piece band originated in munich, where messel and nepomuk worked together in a studio. a short time later, the two met flo on a production job. "the chemistry between us was right straight away, so we got together and started making music", nepomuk recalls. after the first few commissioned works, the desire to create pieces for their own project emerged. the birth of claire.
looking for a suitable vocalist, flo remembered an old party acquaintance: josie. "i contacted her over facebook and asked if she wanted to come by, and she did", flo grins, describing the situation. "when she started to sing, we all just looked at each other and thought: awesome! this is it."
all they needed then was a drummer for powerful live performances of their songs. this is where fridl came into play, someone flo still knew from his time in the munich metal-core scene. claire was complete.
