Having come to Brooklyn by way of Europe, California, New England and their native state of Ohio, sister and brother Emily and Glenn Forsythe are the indie folk band St. Claire. Joined by Amelia Emmet (from Thick Wild), Michael Howard and Anders Griffen, St. Claire weaves thick, hushed harmonies together with ambient layers of sound made of instruments new and old. Emily's voice reaches over anthem-like rhythms, delivering soulful, somber melodies and lyrics full to the brim with alluring images and stories. St. Claire is currently working on their follow up record to their debut album "Everyone Lives Here."
"St. Claire is a band that deserves the folk label. Hailing from across the globe, the members of this quartet have chosen to build their home atop the muddy waters of rustic guitars and banjos, and solid foundations of wide open spaces of love-weary lyrics. Indeed, while other 'folk' performers don traditional instruments but keep the melodies as radio-friendly pop fodder, (Mumford and Sons anyone?) St. Claire isn't afraid to tell a story of heartbroken pain, rooted in tradition, but sounding like the first time it's been told. Like the beautifully haunting, 'he is a ghost,' where a repeated ode to love becomes an anthemic act of desperation. But you'll have to listen to these pleas yourself to really appreciate the fact that the band's now settled into Brooklyn." - The Deli Magazine
