Clairo | Music Artists on Indie Accent


b. 1998 | ORIGIN: USA

Claire Cottrill (born August 18, 1998), known professionally as Clairo, is an American singer-songwriter from Carlisle, Massachusetts. Her fame escalated after releasing "Pretty Girl" (2017), a lo-fi-produced song that attracted over 35 million views on YouTube. She attributed the interest in the video to the website's algorithm system. Her professional debut was with the EP Diary 001 (2018), followed by the LP Immunity (2019).
Claire was born in Atlanta, Georgia, the daughter of marketing executive Geoff Cottrill. According to her, "Pretty Girl" was inspired by 1980s pop music, and that although she was tagged with the "bedroom pop" label, it was not her intention to make that style of music. After the popularity of "Pretty Girl", Clairo signed a record contract with the help of her family's connections with The Fader magazine. Her presentation of herself as a "do-it-yourself" artist was questioned amid some online controversy, which included her being labelled an "industry plant". (Wikipedia)
