Due to popular demand, Clara Lofaro returns to Italy for "Color Blind," her second Italian Tour!

“LOFARO’S SONGS ARE LACED WITH SOULFUL GROOVES, AND HER VOCALS OOZE WITH VULNERABILITY AND DEFIANCE”

With six Toronto Music awards and hundreds of song placements on television and film under her belt, Clara Lofaro is redefining what it means to be a pop singer and in-demand songwriter. Lofaro, whose career began as the featured soloist in her local church and community theater, has broken new ground and reached new highs with the release of her six song EP, PUSH.

Raised by Italian immigrants, Clara worked at a recording studio in her native Toronto before relocating to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music. Anxious to sink her teeth into the New York City music scene, Clara completed her four year degree in less than three years.

New York City’s energy and power were the perfect compliment for Clara’s pure talent and fierce drive. She has performed alongside Stevie Nicks, Edwin McCain, Kimberly Locke, and Jeffrey Gaines and was the vocalist in the Disney Super Bowl commercial singing, "When You Wish Upon a Star" featuring MVP players of the NFL team.

“Effortlessly blends her soulful singing with fun, poppy tunes”
-TIME OUT, NEW YORK

Performing throughout the world with her band and as a solo artist, Lofaro’s Songstress Pop captures her unique take on her generation, while paying homage to the great songwriters she so admires.

Her work has “been likened to that of Laura Nyro, Carole King and Annie Lennox”.
- The Insider.

Clara’s ability to write hits, both for herself and others has proven successful again and again. American Idol finalist Erika Van Pelt released four of her songs, Maddy Ziegler (SIA) won Dance Moms to Clara’s passionate performance of, Send Me A Lifeline, and shows such as The Voice, The Tonight Show, Young & the Restless, American Idol and many more are using CL tunes as their backdrop. Vanity Fair Napkins chose Lofaro's single Just Smile (from her Self Titled LP) as the theme song for their Wipe On A Smile National Commercial Campaign. The commercial ran for four years.

A powerfully encouraging artist, her current six song EP PUSH features Billboard hit B2LU. Clara wrote the title track PUSH in a Brooklyn basement apartment while curled up in bed, on New Year’s Eve. It wasn't until she moved out of the basement, both figuratively and literally, that she was able to finish the song. "It's a hopeful call to the universe to pour it's encouraging light over me as I push away and toward it. I make a promise that I won't give up and long for that partner who won't either." Co-written with her long time collaborator and bassist, Jordan Scannella they break into what Lofaro calls "pillow pop" in his production with Joshua Sadlier-Brown.

The pillow talk turns into a pillow fight when Meant to Be, Other Side and B2LU start a liberating celebration and declare all our differences erased through music; Clara’s ultimate dream and drive behind creating new music. We are reminded of Lofaro's ability to write an infectious sing-a-long in the fan favourite, Put On A Show. Then she leaves us with just the piano and her unrelenting vocal as it all comes crashing down in I Wanted It All Redux.

Clara Lofaro thrives by bringing her courageous vulnerability to the polished pop arena. It’s a beautiful tone and message you don’t want to be without.
