Challenging herself and advancing her music is what the Australian-born, London-based singer-songwriter, CLOVES, has been doing for almost all of her life. Born Kaity Dunstan, she can’t remember a time before wanting to make music. Dunstan dropped out of school at sixteen and worked a few jobs, but never left her music. A failed early production deal left her disappointed, but even more committed to her own vision. She went to Los Angeles to write, but after a month of the music industry shuffle, she felt that London would be a better fit for her creatively.
With One Big Nothing, her debut album, CLOVES demonstrates a musical assurance and maturity far beyond her years, an impressive progression from her acclaimed 2015 EP XIII, which landed her slots at the Coachella and Lollapalooza festivals and her song "Don't Forget About Me"was featured on the soundtrack to the 2016 film Me Before You earning it over 40 million streams to date. Her single "California Numb - Acoustic" appeared in 2017, followed by "Brining The House Down" both garnering millions of streams. Since then she has been Apple Music's Artist of the Week, headlined shows in Australia, and been on tour with artists James Bay and Greta Van Fleet. CLOVES is an empowering force with one of the greatest soulful singing voices since Amy Winehouse herself.
