“… Into Other Arms is a beautiful, dark velvet piece…” Deborah Conway
Clio tours regularly with Angus and Julia Stone, Deborah Conway, Killing Heidi and Tim Rogers and recently featured in the esteemed ‘Count Down’ band who performed at the Sydney Opera House for ABC Television’s New Year’s Eve broadcast.

“… Clio is a cut above the rest of her class… All those established stars who use Clio as a keyboard gun for hire are gonna have to look elsewhere soon because she’s gonna be too busy doing her own stuff…” Jon Von Goes, Triple R
Clio has released three singles: ‘Into Other Arms’, ‘Sleep For Years’ - which was deemed a “perfect pop song…. class and hip and supremely listenable” and “Something Left to Leave Behind” which achieved a 4-star review in Forte magazine and was named an “empowering collection of music” with “lyrics that could break 1000 hearts in a room at once”.
