107. Clarissa Diokno
Kitchener/Waterloo’s Clarissa Diokno is a class act who’s payed many dues on the cover band stage, the karaoke stage (as both host and singer), has pursued acting and all matters of performing; I couldn’t be happier to chat with her after releasing her fantastic first original song. It just so happens that her debut single “Confusion” is a JAM, and naturally we discuss this. There’s a bit of a narrative starting in the dog days of Chainsaw nights in Uptown Waterloo, through the cover circuit, working in Los Angeles, and then back to KW, where in quarantine, this seasoned, silk-voiced and very down to earth ARTIST is still set on taking over the world.
“Clarissa Diokno is a Singer-Songwriter who uses her music as therapy and connects with the listener through relatable lyrics of events in her life. Clarissa blends her smooth, soulful vocal style with the vibe and production of Pop and Contemporary R&B.”
- from Clarissa’s official biography.
Please enjoy our chat! You’ll hear Clarissa’s “Confusion” single, as well as some more JAMs by Warpaint.
