Clara Strauch is a Swedish/American singer-songwriter. With roots in both New York City and on the Swedish island of Gotland, she is now based in Stockholm.
Strauch released her debut album Persephone in 2018, and her dreamily poetic folk-pop earned media comparisons to Regina Spektor, Tori Amos, and First Aid Kit. An NYU Tisch Drama alum, Strauch is active as both actor and composer/musician in plays, and she was nominated for Outstanding Original Music at The New York Innovative Theatre Awards. Most recently, she played one of the roles in Mia Hansen-Løve's upcoming film "Bergman Island."
Strauch's second album is coming in 2020, which will be 50/50 in Swedish/English since she was raised bilingual. The first single Där was released in November 2019 - her first song in Swedish.
