FAST REPLY, FAST DELIVERY & PRO QUALITY. Pro guitarist specialised in rock & metal, very experienced in the music industry (live shows & studio work)

Hey you! Let's create awesome music together!

I'm Claire, I’m a professional guitarist based in London (UK). I have been playing and touring extensively with rock and metal bands since 2016 all over the world and played famous international festivals like Montreux Jazz Festival and Isle of Wight Festival.

I have a professional home studio setup and work with amp modelling, so sound possibilities are endless! I can either record that specific guitar part you've got in mind for your song, or come up with parts on my own (including top lines, solos, or rhythm parts). I'm also a big fan of using effect pedals to come up with creative guitar parts with an unique edge. I equally love massive sounding heavy riffs and ambient / ethereal clean guitar landscapes.

In 2022, I started my own alternative metal band, Glytsh, where I write and produce. Our influences range from Rage Against The Machine to Nine Inch Nails, Deftones, Ghostemane, Bad Omens, Spiritbox etc.

I love mixing my classic rock / 80's hard rock and modern / alternative metal influences to create something contemporary and fresh sounding, without compromising on the soul and feel!

I am endorsed by PRS Guitars.

I have a master degree from London College of Music (Master Degree in performance), and a degree from the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London.

    What a pleasure working with Claire. She is a pro who is passionate, and clearly loves what she does. She takes great pride in her work, sound & gear which is always the best of situations. I will be happily working with her on many more tracks. I could not recommend Claire enough. She's the one to hire! Thanks Claire, You rock!

    Claire is an amazing talent. Beyond being a sick guitarist and that she knew just what to play, she was a joy to work with. Great communication right from the start, understood the task at hand and delivered like a pro. Will definitely go to again!

    From the off Claire was very quick to respond and offer a concise proposal, I was maybe not overly prescriptive about what I felt was needed, and Claire heard it in the track and delivered pristine work with lovely balance between technical ability and emotion - thanks Claire and thanks SoundBetter
