A Star is Born – Clare Maguire “The Shield and the Sword”

Clare Maguire could be the next Adele/Lady Gaga/Cher. A striking voice, this Irish singer-songwriter is exploding onto the music scene. I feel like pop music is in a run for its money. Maguire is completely fresh, the music video, shot in a museum is visually artistic.

Something I kind of noticed in the music video, I don’t know if it is intentional, but I kind of feel like she is playing different pop stars. When she is sitting with the golden men around her, she kind of looks like Adele in the music video “Rolling in the Deep”.

When she has the blond wig, she looks like Lady Gaga.

And she looks like Katy Perry with the sunglasses with the long dark hair.

Maybe a homage to Pop Stars Past? Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone like Clare Maguire comes into to shake up the music business. Check out the music video for her latest single, “The Shield and the Sword”.
