It is with sadness that we have to announce that Claire has decided to leave the band.
Since joining Break Cover in May 2015 Claire has performed nearly 70 gigs with us and we have done an awful lot together.
Highlights of our time together include: Winners of Best Covers Band at the SMAs 2015, Runners up 2016 and Runner Up Best Vocalist 2016; performing at the Christmas Lights Switch On ceremony in December 2015; having Break Cover appear in a surprising way at her own surprise birthday party; a road trip and wedding in St Ives; numerous open air festivals and charity events; some new venues and lots of regular ones.
As we are had already planned a bit of a break in January with only the one gig at the Talking Heads in Southampton we have mutually agreed that now is the right time for Claire to leave.
We wish Claire all the best with her future musical endeavours and hope that this gives her time to pursue some of her individual goals which being in Break Cover hasn’t afforded her the time to do over the last two years.
Moving forwards, we are not actively looking to replace Claire in the short term and Break Cover will now be a four piece with Craig taking on the lead vocals full time. This will naturally result in a more rocky tone and rather than being a Rock and Pop covers band we will focus more on Classic Rock songs as this is both the band’s natural sound and is also built into the DNA of all the remaining band members.
Please join us in thanking Claire for all her hard work and dedication over the past 2 years and Steve, Simon, Terry, Craig and Ken look forward to seeing you all at a venue soon.
