Elegance and beauty make it very easy to mistake 'Clara' for a Catwalk model. When Clara is not working for or associating with the Melbourne modelling community at gala fashion events such as 'Melbourne Loreal Fashion Week' and 'Spring Fashion Week' she can be readily found singing acoustic jams at a variety of events. Clara is a self confessed open mic fan. Clara is always quick to announce her passion for music in many forms and she can often be found sitting in a quiet studio, working on a hit, experimenting with her unique singing voice or song writing on piano. Clara spent the early part of her life in the UK and proudly boasts a 'Lily Allen' like accent that carries through her recordings and performances.
Clara's gentle approach to music is a refreshing reminder that great performances often come from artists with a delicate consideration to their art. Clara regularly performs in her new home town of Melbourne as well as at interstate and international events across Australia and Asia. In addition to her singing talent Clara possesses live music skills as a live performance DJ, using the stage name 'DJ Claz'.
With a fast rising profile and a killer smile to match, DJ Claz has created herself opportunities to play along side celebritys such as, 'Tyga', 'Ray-J', 'Andrew De Silva' and her child hood idol 'Craig David' and in addition to this, DJ Claz hosts celebrities on a regular occasion at her own weekly Friday & Saturday night events held in the Melbourne CBD. DJ Claz's versatility as a live performance DJ includes an ability to bounce between multiple genres. Clara's early musical influences came to her as a young girl growing up in the UK where she became influenced by well known artists such as TLC, Craig David, Aaliyah, Dru Hill, 112, 2-Pac, Diana King and many, many more.
Although rnb and early hip-hop heavily influenced the early teen years of this evolving artist, it is her recent love affair with the 'House' and 'EDM Dance' genres that have seen her rise in the club music industry like a shooting star.
DJ Claz is rapidly earning her household name as Melbourne’s most exotic and professional mixed female club DJ of Asian heritage, spinning some of the hottest rnb and hard pumping house & electro tunes that the scene has to offer. Clara Rui Yates joins the fine list of singer song writing talent in becoming a member of the Star Music family.
