CD: Clare Maguire - Light After Dark

Rating: 4/5

With a voice that’s part Annie Lennox, partCeline Dion and part Heather Small of M People, British newcomer Clare Maguire makes for excellent listening.

Light after Dark is pop perfection with some R&B hints.

The young talent belts out tracks such as Last Dance and Shield and Sword with the easy confidence of Adele.

Clare’s first offering has all the makings of a chart-topper.
