DJ QUEEN B

Hailing from Manchester Clare boasts a classical background and is well versed in a myriad of musical instruments. Developing from an early age she found inspiration from an incredibly musical family and from touring with various orchestras. This juxtaposed with a passion for house music that was somewhat introduced by her older siblings as they returned from the Hacienda with no intentions of sleep, instead favouring a little Sasha and Digweed on the home system.

The seeds had been planted and truly began to flower when at University following a student loan which was well invested into her first set of 1210’s. It was clear that as her enthusiasm for music grew her appetite for the day-to-day university life began to fade. She had made her decision to fully submerge herself in the industry she had grown up admiring. Under the wing of the Sublime and Optimo boys she got out of the bedroom and began playing her own shows, student radio, and beyond.

Momentum began to build as she secured the main residency for Behave at the Honeycomb, Edinburgh’s ‘superclub’ at the time. There she supported the like of Adam F, Fabio, Grooverider, DJ Zinc, DJ Hype and DMC Champion Plus One to name a few.

Another year on, she was crowned as Scotland’s best female DJ and shortly after this Clare competed to win a place as the UK’s choice for The Red Bull Music Academy in Brazil. DJ Marky and XRS were her tutors amongst others. They spotted her talent and invited her to work with them in the studio. Add in some time with The Princes Trust, learning the craft of song writing and discovering her voice and here we are today – Clare Conlon – a.k.a DJ Queen B.

Clare writes and produces from her studio at her home in Cheshire.
