Australian Singer Imogen Clark Releases New Single ‘Found Me’

Australian singer-songwriter, Imogen Clark today releases a brand new single ‘FOUND ME’, her first new music in two years and the first taste of her ‘The Making Of Me’ six-track EP, due out in August via Potts Entertainment/MGM.

‘Found Me’ was written with Clare Bowen (who also sings harmonies on the track) and Brandon Robert Young; it’s an uplifting track that highlights Imogen’s soaring vocals. Recorded in LA and produced by Mike Bloom (Jenny Lewis, Rilo Kiley,  Julian Casablancas, Jonathan Rice, Rachael Yamagata), the song represents the songstress’ personal evolution from vulnerable to confident, the journey of finding strength and power in chaos and heartbreak.

Cutting her teeth playing in local pubs in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales Australia before taking the stage with artists like Shania Twain, Ian Moss and Willie Watson, Imogen has worked relentlessly over the past decade, building up her musical chops. She has worked with Mark Lizotte (Diesel), Kasey Chambers and Jim Lauderdale and now cites Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello and the Attractions) amongst her collaborators, both appearing on the new The Making Of Me EP.

The songs on this EP are the by product of a year that found Imogen picking up the pieces and putting together a new version of herself.  A huge part of the process of making this EP, and this song, in particular, was allowing herself to embrace imperfections, and make the kind of music that she had previously been too afraid to pursue due to outside forces trying to fit her into someone else’s idea of what is authentic. “I wrote this song at one of my lowest points – fatigued, heartbroken and second guessing the most important decisions I’d made in my life, “ says Clark. “Writing this song gave me the strength to believe in myself again. It’s an empowerment anthem about making the tough decisions to become the person you need to be, and I hope it can relight some people’s fire in the midst of everything right now”.  Imogen has finally come to a point in her life where she stopped caring about the surrounding noise and outside opinions and is writing songs that represent all of who she is. She equally adores artists like Taylor Swift and  Bruce Springsteen and is now making the music that reflects that.
