Clare Bowditch Babies

TWINS ~ Australian musician Clare Bowditch and her partner Marty Brown welcomed twin boys back in January. Oscar and Elijah are the new little brothers for 3 year old Asha. On Clare's official site dated February 1st, there is a posting under the news section; "Well, it's finally happened! Last week, Clare (with the help of Marty) gave birth, very naturally, to two very big twins, Oscar and Elijah. Clare says it didn't hurt one bit, although she could be lying. She will be writing up the boys' birth story in detail as an open letter later in the month. Weighing in at 8 and 7 pounds, the boys are at home and in fantastic form, being mainly taken care of by their big sister Asha, who seems to have it all under control. Work on the new album will recommence in a couple of months when Marty finally begins producing enough milk to feed both the twins (at the moment he's really struggling to keep up). In the meantime, thank you for all your kind words and well wishes. xo xo xo".

Bowditch was one of the founding members of folk band Red Raku before venturing out as a solo artist. She lived in Canada in 2000/2001 to study ethnomusicology and songwriting. In 2006 she won and ARIA award for Best Female Artist.
