THE DAMES was a project she started with Kaye Louise Patterson and they released their only album in 2013.

She has scored for film and tv, including the 2003 comedy-drama "Bad Eggs" which was written and directed by Tony Martin.

In 2013 she scored "Johnny Ghost" with Dave Graney for film maker Donna McRae.

In 2010 she worked on the Arts Centre project about Australian female musicians called "Rock Chicks". This exhibition opening culminated in a performance by a formidable band she had gotten together to back singers, Margret Roadknight, Jeanie Lewis, Carroll LLoyd, Adalita , Jodi Phillis and Diana Ahnaid.


She also plays drums with Harry Howard and the NDE - with whom she has been involved in for Three albums.

"This is described as a “rock and roll” album and in that it reflects music from the late 60s/early 70s (pre-punk if you will) that is a reasonable description but i’d say it goes beyond that basic description as there are modern elements, nods to jazz, the use of current technique, and of course the unique Graney/Moore stylings all present. It adds to and enhances a formidable body of work.
I commend it to you without reservation".
Bob Osborne - Analogue Trash Radio (UK)

" This is your Guernica, your Imagine, your XYGTHO Phase 3, your Raging Bull. Everything you have created before has culminated in his true masterpiece of recorded music.
Life, Death, Pathos, Humour, Groove and above all Aplomb = Zippa Dee Do what is-was that-this?

Congratulations to you, Clare and the mistLY and thank you for an album that will be on regular rotation in my shack for the remainder of my days.Graeme Tressider"
