She started getting more serious with her music career when she met the band La Femme in 2011. For a time, she became one of the female voices.She sang two songs on the album Psycho Tropical Berlin released in 2013. After leaving the band she formed the duo Hologram, with Maxime Sokolinski.
In 2015-2016, she accompanied the singer Raphaël on stage for his tour Somnambules.In 2017, she performed with Benjamin Biolay and released a first EP, Monstre d’amour, recorded with Benjamin Lebeau (The Shoes) and Ambroise Willaume (Revolver) to critical acclaim.
In April 2018 Clara Luciani released her first album, Sainte-Victoire, which was well received by the press.
Last year in January she toured Australia, performing at the So Frenchy So Chic festival series in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.
Luciani claims Francoise Hardy, Serge Gainsbourg, Nico, Michel Legrand and Paul McCartney as influences.
