Manners McDade: My Music, with Clare Everson

Specialists in contemporary classical and electronic music (as well as film and TV composers), the Manners McDade group of companies provide artist management, music publishing and sync services. In 2016 they established a record label, Cognitive Shift Recordings.

Every fortnight, one member of Manners McDade shares a personally curated playlist. Clare Everson, Creative and Sync Executive, shares her listening inspiration this week!

Clare gained a First-Class BA in Music from Durham University and is a trained pianist, violist and flautist. After graduating, Clare worked in Paris for a year before joining the international digital team at Warner Music. Her role at Manners McDade spans sync, licensing and creative services for the roster.

Clare now plays in several orchestral ensembles in London, having performed in major venues across Europe. She previously ran the Warner Music choir, managing the group during their recording with Kylie Minogue.

“Having just come out of a string sextet recording session at Air studios, I feel a renewed appreciation for the extensive expressive capacity of string instruments. Whether its vibrato on a single violin note, a cello concerto, a rich viola orchestral solo or percussive bass harmony, strings are highly powerful.

It is no surprise that great composers such as Bach, Brahms and Tchaikovsky composed hours upon hours of music featuring solo or ensemble strings.

String timbres and textures are being used more in contemporary classical as well as electronic/pop tracks and albums. Electric violins, emotive cello lines and string quartet accompaniments are all reimagining the possibilities of a contemporary classical sound.
