Time is the sensation of mortality; the steady transition from past to future, certainty to uncertainty. And while the certainty of mortality has preoccupied humanity since the earliest times, there also exists an ancient desire to know the future. Science considers only objective reality, where events are taken as evidence of physical laws whose truth may be ascertained by experiment. Clairvoyants, on the other hand, have always tried to go a step further, but have never claimed control over the laws of gravity or methods of communication.
Claire Voyant is a four-piece band from Sacramento. The name, a play on the French clairvoyant (one who possesses "second sight"), was also the name of a sensational 1940s comic strip series. Much like the fictional Claire Voyant was the alias of an antiheroine called "The Black Widow", Claire Voyant the band conceals singer Victoria Lloyd.
