Hey! I'm Claire and I am a female music producer, topliner, songwriter and sound designer from Sydney Australia. I currently work as a music producer in producing radio ready hits for an array of music artists and as a sound designer for commercial clients from my music and audio based company 'Sound Me Out'. I go above and beyond for my clients.
Hey I'm Claire! I started my career when I was 15 as a music artist. Some of my biggest accolades include charting in publications such as DJ Times and Billboard and working with people such as Grammy Award Winning House DJ and Producer ‘Dave Aude’ and Grammy nominated DJ ’Stonebridge’.
After my pursuits on the stage I began to become more interested in studio work and creative endeavours surrounding music and as a result I completed both a bachelor’s Degree in Audio Engineering and Diploma of Film. Since graduating I set up my startup music and audio company ‘Sound Me Out’, where I currently work in commercial sound design and producing and creating content for music artists.
I work with Ableton and Pro Tools and own a vast array of top plug-ins, virtual instruments and samples. The main genre I work in is pop and sub-pop genres. I work to give life to a song and work to produce radio ready releases that engages the listener from the first note. I work both from my home studio in Sydney and remotely with international clients. It all starts with an initial demo.
When you hire me you can be assured you are in the best of hands! I work until my clients are 100% happy. I find my clients like working with me because I am personable and professional and I care about the artists who I work with. I want you to be the best you can be in your music journey.

Interview with Claire Rasa
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Imogen Heap is a big one. She inspires me because of how tech savvy she is when it comes to audio production. Lauv and Charlie Puth are also two singers who inspire me because they producer their own music and I think it's rare now days to see well-known singers who are hands on in the production of their songs. Their not just a voice but so much more as well.
