Claire Plumb's debut solo album is comprised of hazy, nostalgic songs that go beyond the sum of their parts.

A classically trained opera singer, Claire's music is at once intensely personal and widely universal. With this album, she sought to introduce herself as a solo artist while collecting songs that she had been performing for years.

We developed an approach using double exposure photographs to visually depict Claire as the artist, that also built a loose, dreamy narrative. While the cover photograph is quite striking, the interior and booklet images are contemplative, and build additional questions and meaning when paired with the song titles.

A semi-transparent, blue cassette tape mirrors the approach to imagery and feeling, while also functioning as an "art object."
