Having already played on some of Australia's most renowned stages, including Sydney Entertainment Centre, Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Forum Theatre Melbourne and Tamworth Regional Entertainment Centre, it’s no wonder twenty-year-old singer/songwriter Imogen Clark is being regarded by Drum Media as “showing a maturity beyond her years both in song, her writing and performance...Certainly a mainstay in the Australian live scene” (Timothy Scarfe, 2013).
Her long-spanning gigging experience has included being a support act for Matt Corby, Daryl Braithwaite, The McClymonts, Bill Chambers and Christine Anu, as well as playing pre-show entertainment at Sydney Entertainment Centre for the Mumford & Sons, Paul Simon, P!nk, Simple Minds, Carole King, and Leonard Cohen concerts. Having played packed out shows at the Blue Mountains Folk Festival and Northern Beaches Music Festival in 2013, Imogen was then sought out to perform at the Sydney Blues & Roots Festival, Horizon Youth Music Festival, and Sydney's VIVID Festival, all in May of 2014. She also represented Sounds Australia at the Americana Music Festival in Nashville Tennessee during September 2014, playing in world-renowned and highly respected venues including the Bluebird Cafe.
On top of her performance successes, in August 2013 Imogen was shortlisted for APRA’s prestigious Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition with her original song 'Ceaseless Goodbye'. Following this, last year 'Ceaseless Goodbye' was given an Honourable Mention in the Nashville-based International Songwriting Competition, placing Imogen in the top 1% of 19,000 worldwide entries and making her 1 of 16 world finalists in her category.
The judges of what is deemed to be the world’s most prestigious song competition included Tom Waits, Robert Smith (The Cure), Black Francis (Pixies) and Ketch Secor (Old Crow Medicine Show). 'Ceaseless Goodbye' was later nominated as a worldwide finalist in Nashville's Unsigned Only Screen Shot Competition.
