1. What inspired you to do music and when did you know it was meant to be a professional career?
S: For as long as I can remember, our older sister, Mary Mckenna, was always singing and playing the
guitar. Claire and I have always looked up to her, so it was only natural that we started singing as well.
When Mary went off to college, we started Sarah Claire. Given how organic it all developed, we knew it was
our destiny and that we would be pursuing it for the rest of our lives.
C: Sarah and I are incredibly close with our sisters. One of the best aspects of our bond is my family’s
authentic taste in music. It is a huge source of inspiration. It also assured me that we were destined to
sing. We made every effort to sing at local talent shows and performed at the Special Olympics several
times. There is genuinely nothing like hitting the stage with my twin sister.
