"Clare writes with a really true sense of freedom in her lyrics, just as young Dylan did. As for her vocals, they grace her words with all the care of an experienced musical surgeon at work"

"Clare Sands has been one of our best finds. She has unique ways in covering classic songs and making them her own. She is a real talent and a firm favourite of ours in our venue"

"There is a fearlessness in Clare's writing; I love it. Audiences can hear and see what she's got, and know it's unique and different. As for her fiddle playing, she has such a great flair for improvisation. She certainly knows how to deliver"
