A new slimline CLEA are on the way back to popville. Check out their new website www.officialclea.com which has all the news, new music and new pictures. The band are a threepiece now and looking and sounding better than ever.
The lovely girls of Clea seem to have many fans all over the world and fan sites are popping up everywhere. One of them just happens to be a Canadian one.

Meanwhile, the girls are gigging around the UK and are in the studio recording some new material with some new writers around Britain. New stuff from Clea should be out in early 2005 so keep a lookout for them.
British music mogul Simon Cowell is overwhelmed by the amount of “weirdos” auditioning on his new TV show The X Factor.
The infamous Pop Idol and American Idol star of a judge has joined forces with Ozzy Osbourne’s wife, the lovely Ms Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh to guide wannabe singers of all ages and backgrounds into stardom.
Simon Cowell explains, “On Pop Idol we used to get 15,000 turning up for the auditions. Now we’re getting 50,000. On Pop Idol the weirdest people would register at about 6.7 on the ‘weirdometer’. Here people are registering 9.9 on the scale.”
“I had to tell one guy that he should be a drag queen. When I gave him the option to come back and audition again as Julie Andrews, he threatened to get his lawyers in.”Insiders say that Matt Johnson, formerly of now defunct One True Voice is in it. Also in is Chloe who recently left Clea to join R&B girlband Fierce and apparently now she auditioned for the show too. So didn’t the Fierce thing work out? Talk about a confused girl. Keep a lookout for those two anyway.
The X Factor premiered on googleboxes everywhere in the UK come September 4.
Did Chloe formerly from Clea join Fierce, an English R&B trio?
A lot of questions are being asked by fans of both groups after she was seen performing alongside the girls of Fierce, who are planning a comeback to the music scenes. Their last single hit No 3 on the charts and it was their cover of Anita Baker’s Sweet Love.
No official answers yet but it does seem weird leaving Clea, saying she wanted to carve out a solo career and joining Fierce instead.
As we’ve all heard, Chloe walked out on Clea a few weeks back, citing reasons like she wasn’t achieving much in Clea anyway to ones like “I’m going to carve a solo career for myself”.
Where does that leave the rest of the girls then, namely Lindsay, Emma and Aimee? Well, they have vowed to not disappoint their fans and carry on. Apparently, word is out that they are going into the studios once more to re-record some new songs and put out a brand new single in the coming months.
Another rumour is that the girls are going to re-record Sprung for their third single.
Personally, I love Clea and I think they should do well. All the best girls.
