Claire Martin's eclectic taste, originality and flair ensures this foray into pop-crossover territory, a trend she championed long before Norah Jones and Madeleine Peyroux made this style an accepted genre, was highly successful.

Claire invited Noel Gallagher to play acoustic guitar on 'Help!' whilst other notable contributors include Paul Stacey, Gareth Williams, Arnie Somogyi. Jeremy Stacey, Jason Rebello and Mornington Lockett.

Claire Martin co-wrote a few of the songs on ‘Take My Heart', including 'Pleading Guilty' which is Joni Mitchell-esque in style and Inner City Girl.
