1989 Clair Marlo – Let It Go

Let it Go is the debut album by Clair Marlo, released in 1989 on Sheffield Lab.

Clara Veseliza Baker, known professionally as Clair Marlo, is a Croatian-American composer, performer, arranger and record producer. She is notable for her hit singles “Til They Take My Heart Away” from her debut album Let It Go. Her song became a staple in radio stations in the early 90’s and was later covered by Filipino singer, Kyla on her Album “Not Your Ordinary Girl”. Clair Marlo was also notable for singing “Sviraj” and “Lullaby” on Paul Schwartz’s “Aria 2 – New Horizon” CD which went to #5 on Billboard’s Top Classical Crossover Chart in 1999.

A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Marlo has released recordings under her own name (Let it Go, Behaviour Self, and Trinity), and as part of a group (Primal Instinct, Tairona, Vox Mundi, and Liquid Amber). Clair Marlo also founded a small music production company in 1995, Invisible Hand Productions, in partnership with her husband, Alexander “Ace” Baker.
