Phie Claire (also known as Sophie St.Claire) became known as a part of SMC Unity in the 90s and entered with her song “Make It Happen” (Mercury) in 1995 the TOP TEN in the Media Control Charts. These and other songs of SMC Unity were played in the hottest clubs around the world. It was written, that „Make it happen“ and all 5 Mixes of the Vinyl Release of SMC Unity were the best house production in Germany at that time.
Already as a child Phie Claire stood on stage in her father’s jazz club to jam with known and unknown musicians. So it happened that she was sitting on Ella Fitzgerald’s lap as a child and rang along with other greats. At the age of 9, she knew she wanted to be a singer and spent half of her spare time listening to music and singing . Her own style has been influenced by singers such as Isley Brothers and Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklyn, Philip Bailey and Barry White… While her fellow students were listening to Abba and Bay City Rollers she grooved to the sounds of disco, funk and soul.
At the age of 16, she started her long-term vocal education. At 17, she founded her first band. Before she moved to London where she fell in love with house music and later back to Berlin, she appeared in various musical and theater productions. Phie Claire worked in many big studios and sang also for other artists like Sarah Brightman and Marky Mark (United) until she moved to a Pacific Island to spend her time with her family.
After taking a long break from Music she decided 2019 to go back to what she loves most. Now 2019 Phie is back to Music with her new song “LIVING ON” released on HSR Records together with Pavel Svetlove and she`s allready working on some new Songs that will be released later 2020.
