CLOVER is a singer-songwriter currently based in Brooklyn, NY and Frenchtown, NJ. Captivating and soulful, with vocals way bigger than her body, CLOVER wisps you away into a world of angelic anthems. Inspired by the likes of Lake Street Dive, Maggie Rogers, Florence + The Machine, Lorde, and Carole King, she warmly welcomes you with a blend of soul, rock, and pop that echoes timelessness.
In 2018, after graduating from Bard College, CLOVER was invited to participate in NBC's The Voice. She spent a month in LA filming for the show before she decided to leave prior to the premiere and fly home. This was a defining moment for CLOVER and her career, as she realized the importance of her independence and the power of having complete control over her music and image. Since then, CLOVER has fluidly moved through her independent artistry with grace. In the fall of 2018 she moved to Brooklyn, NY where she frequently performed in NYC venues like Rockwood Music Hall, Pete's Candy Story, and PIANOS, and made an appearance on WNYC's The Greene Space for Next Best Thing.
After releasing her debut single "This Love" in early 2020, she left Brooklyn and spent a year driving around the country to bring music to the people during the pandemic through street performance with her partner SUNDREAM. While on the road, she started making her own sustainable merch to sell while busking. She thrifted t-shirts, naturally dyed them with plants, and learned to screen print in the various places that became home.
Sustainability, female empowerment, and social activism guide her music. She recently co-wrote "Power" for MILCK which was featured on ABC Network for Women's History Month in March of 2022. In August of 2023, she performed on her biggest stage yet at Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA! With her debut album in the works, this is just the beginning of CLOVER's rise as an artist.
"I have always felt light and beauty emanate from CLOVER, through her voice, energy, and adventurous spirit."
- Tides Magazine 2021
“When I read what the song was about, I had to kind of emotionally prepare myself, but I should have expected that CLOVER is a master of taking what could very easily spiral into a dark composition and find the light and beauty, and even joy, in a moment like that.”

About "Beach in the Rain"
On February 9th, 2023, just hours before my scheduled flight to Hawaii, I found out that my dad passed away suddenly at only 58 years old. I delayed my trip, threw together a beautiful memorial service on a tiny island in my hometown in NJ, and cleared out his entire apartment in just 2 days. Deep in grief, I flew out to Kauai. I expected it to be a sunny, tropical, beach paradise, but instead, it rained almost the entire time. The weather felt like an external representation of what I was feeling inside and if it were sunny I would have felt out of place, or as I say in the song, “betrayed.”
One day when I was alone on the beach with my guitar, it started raining and the song “Beach in the Rain” was born. Almost a year later I recorded and produced the song in my home studio and am releasing it in memory of my dad, Theo. He wasn’t much of a fan of pop music so I know he is cackling away at the fact that I wrote a pop song about him.
