Claire Tonti is a Naarm based singer/songwriter and host of both the award winning podcast Suggestible and her interview show TONTS. where she speaks to writers, activists, experts, thinkers and deeply feeling humans about their stories. 

Launching her debut album Matrescence, this fresh 11 song record is a big open hearted story of what it means to be a woman, to battle with identity, to move into motherhood, to overcome birth trauma and how this transition through matrescence changes and alters us. Inspired by her own experiences and the stories from the incredible women she is privileged to know, Claire’s songwriting moves from stripped back acoustic folk, to songs with driving beats and addictive melodic hooks, including a love song to her kids and an exploration of mothering as a creative. 

Produced, recorded and performed with her friend and collaborator Ezekiel Fenn and presented in collaboration with Kindred Women this will be a really special afternoon of storytelling and new music about love and loss and trauma and the messy imperfect joys and difficulties that sit inside us as we grow into ourselves and into our power as women.
