Clare & The Reasons Biography (Wikipedia)

Clare and the Reasons are an American pop band led by singer-songwriter Clare Manchon and her husband, Olivier Manchon.

In 2005, Clare Muldaur attended the Berklee School of Music to study jazz composition. She and Olivier Manchon formed the band with Alan Hampton on bass, Beth Meyers on viola, Christopher Hoffman on cello, and Greg Ritchie on drums. They released their first album, The Movie, two years later, with guest appearances by Van Dyke Parks and Sufjan Stevens. After the album was released, the group added multi-instrumentalist Bob Hart.

Clare Muldaur is the daughter of musician Geoff Muldaur. She released two solo albums before becoming a member of the Reasons. She cites Bessie Smith as an early favorite, in addition to the music of the 1930s and '40s, French films, and the movie musical Singin' in the Rain.

To support their second album, Arrow, Clare and the Reasons toured the U.S. and Canada with Van Dyke Parks, Vic Chesnutt, and Nouvelle Vague.

They did an extensive European tour in March 2010. The Reasons had many European festivals in the summer of 2010 (including Primavera Sound Festival and Meltdown Festival in London) and another USA tour with Van Dyke Parks in the fall of 2010.
