Surfing Singer-Songwriter Clara Waidley Releases Debut Album

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (April 18, 2023) — Perpetual road-tripper and surfer Clara Waidley

released her album, summer 4 ever, on March 30th, 2023 via E. Broad Records.

Waidley first began writing songs and playing guitar in her childhood bedroom; summer 4 ever finally delivers the sound she’s been hearing in her head. Producer Annie Leeth helped to build something dreamy and dark to loom underneath Waidley’s sweet, bell-like voice.

“[Annie and I] were on the same page sonically,” says Waidley. “I sent her a playlist and I was

like, ‘dreamy, acoustic, alternative, grunge;’ those words were in my head. That was the vibe.”

Don’t let the sweetness of Waidley’s voice discount the depth of her music: storytelling may just be her greatest strength as a musician. “Not all the songs are directly about me, but I’ve taken my experiences and turned them into stories and then into songs,” says Waidley. “I like making up stories. It’s a little world I can go live in.”

Why would someone on a perpetual road trip want to escape to other worlds? When the

constant moving gets exhausting, Waidley’s stories become her home and place to rest.

“I’ve just spent the past 3 years bouncing from California to Nashville to Savannah to Brooklyn,” Waidley recounts. “That chaos of wanting something to happen, and feeling in this in-between stage of life—it’s kind of fun to daydream about other things, other worlds.”
