First off, Clarity brings an impressive resume in 2022, and all without a manager or agent. The emerging techno artist in Dallas is not only focusing on releasing music but also starting something new. This year she started a project called SHOWPIECE, which is an experience that blends a fashion show with techno. Despite being its debut event, she along with all the creatives was able to sell it out. Clarity continues to thrive musically through her singles like “White Rabbit or her recent remix with Will Clarke. She is sending the audience through some transformative techno goodness. Also performing at Bolier Room and Illfest in Texas, Clarity is currently thriving in all the energy she focuses on her project.
