Alex ClareFormer chef turned singer/songwriter Alex Clare was working as an estate agent when his music career officially took off - he was showing some buyers around a house when he discovered Microsoft wanted to use his song 'Too Close' as the soundtrack for an advert for its latest version of Internet Explorer. His star continues to rise when, on Thursday 11th July, the 27-year-old from Golders Green (who once dated Amy Winehouse) plays the first concert of the 2013 Somerset House Summer Series, eleven nights of outdoor music concerts in the city centre. Clare's "startling" vocals, described as "somewhere between Joe Cocker's rasp and Terence Trent D'Arby's purr" by The Guardian, will soar out across the stunning neo-classical courtyard and into the summer night sky.

 

About Somerset House

Somerset House, once the site of a spectacular Tudor palace, now includes a magnificent 18th century art gallery housing celebrated collections belonging to the Courtauld Institute Gallery, as well as the Embankment Galleries (which replaced the Hermitage Rooms and The Gilbert Collection - the latter re-opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum in June 2009).
