Biography

 

“Peya has created a world of hardy melodies settled in its mastery of the piano, which plays with heterodox theatrical gestures, and by the hand of singers chosen with good taste and intention.”

Jordi Bianciotto (El Periódico)

With an impressive CV behind her back, musically Clara Peya is unclassifiable. Restless, visceral and transcendent, she flees from clichés and, above all, believes in the power of art as a tool for social transformation.

Clara Peya, considered one of the most prolific and transgressive pianists in the State, is energy and feeling in its purest form. Always with the piano as the center of gravity she composes and writes songs inspired by the sound of artists such as Samora Pinderhughes, RY X, Patrick Watson, Douglas Dare, Beady Belle, or established references such as Portishead or Björk.

With a contagious and torrential artistic personality, her live shows are unique and she captures the attention of the public in a hypnotic way. A tireless activist and fighter, she was recognized with the National Culture Award 2019 for her musical career and social commitment.
