Clare Wheeler Biography

Clare Wheeler

Living in: England

Clare Wheeler grew up in Kenya before moving to Manchester to attend Chetham's School of Music, where she trained as a violinist and also studied classical voice. During this time she met bassist Steve Berry of Loose Tubes, and started getting into jazz. She went on to Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London to study jazz composition and voice under Pete Churchill and Tim Garland, as well as classical singing with Penny Mackay. Clare freelanced in London as a singer and composer, and taught music theory and harmony at the Academy of Contemporary Music, before joining The Swingles in 2007. In 2012, she released 'Crossing', a jazz album with American composer Tyler Gilmore. A respected voice in contemporary vocal music, Clare has been a guest host of BBC Radio 3's 'The Choir'. It is her life's ambition to be the voice of London's Tube trains.
