Cloves’ Soulful Vocals

XIII’ Filled with Slow, Acoustic Serenades

This Melbourne-born artist created a following after opening for James Bay, singer of hit track “Hold Back the River,” in Dallas, Texas, and she’s back for more. Her debut single, “Frail Love,” a clean piano ballad, includes so much emotion and soulful vocals and lyrics that she had to extend her flair onto three more songs, eventually resulting in her first EP, XIII. Filled with slow, acoustic serenades, this album of passion and expression is perfect for when you need to clear your head or think about the future and life.
