From a very young age, Clea has presented herself as the complete artisan. Her passion for music and songwriting runs deep, taking center stage in her life over the past 3 years. Musically Clea is awash with resonant sounds, be it her velvet voice, the tremor of her acoustic guitar, or the melancholic swirl of the Mellotron. At the core of Clea’s music is the melodic pull, each song drawing the listener in to a world of both discovery and recognition. For Clea, writing music usually starts with the guitar, the strummed melody revealing the sentiment. Her debut single ‘Polyester’ has quietly picked up over 4 million plays on Spotify and earned acclaim from both Australian and international media alike. The support for ‘Dire Consequences’ paved the way for Clea’s debut EP ‘Fairweather’, and saw another single ‘Bright Blue’ added to rotation on Triple J, followed by sold out headline shows and jumping on board tours with Holy Holy and Alex The Astronaut.

Debut Australian & New Zealand Shows This November
WITH SPECIAL GUEST CLEA
Frontier Touring is delighted to announce that Brooklyn-raised, LA-based singer-songwriter King Princess will tour Australia & New Zealand for the very first time this November. Performing a string of headline shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Auckland, the rising talent will enchant audiences with her unique, self-produced brand of pop.
‘… a songwriter, producer, and musician who is truly challenging the traditional terms of pop music today.’ – Coup De Main Magazine
‘There’s an inherent sense of sweeping romance and melancholy in her songs that renders them captivating.’ – PAPER
“1950’ is about as close to perfect as a pop song can get.’ - Pitchfork
Growing up in Brooklyn, New York where she observed a number of the music industry’s greatest artists at her father’s recording studio Mission Sound, King Princess turned down a record deal at just 11 years old in favour of finishing school.
At just 19 years old, King Princess burst onto the international market earlier this year with platinum certified, breakout single ‘1950’ which reached a high of #13 on Spotify and broke the top 30 on both the ARIA and Shazam charts. The track has been streamed over 14 million times in Australia and New Zealand and following a single tweet from Harry Styles quoting the lyrics went viral, the tweet has generated over 300,000 likes and 100,000 retweets to date.
Her incredible debut EP Make My Bed was released in June via Mark Ronson’s Zelig Records (out now through Sony Music Australia) as the label’s first release. Featuring exquisite new single ‘Talia’ which has been streamed over 14 million times worldwide to date and an additional three, previously unheard tracks, Make My Bed is an incredible insight into what we can expect from pop’s exciting new artist.
‘... a prodigy in the making’. - Mark Ronson
As an intensifying vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, King Princess is a pop superstar in the making and these shows are not to be missed. Secure tickets now to avoid disappointment!
