Prior to meeting Pedro Yanowitz and starting Morningwood with him, Claret says she was attending film school with an eye on directing music videos. She directed the Morningwood music video for "Take Off Your Clothes" & "Snobby Little Elf", as well as claymation video for "Little Hard On's" by The Left Rights . In 1999 Claret appeared in the short film, American Mod. She is featured on the song "Wait (The Nexus)" by Mike Relm.

Her debut solo record The One, The Only... was released on June 19, 2012. "Bite Your Tongue" can be heard in commercials for Degrassi: The Next Generation Season 12 Promo as well as ESPN First Take. "Honey Honey" & "Pleasure Seeker" have been featured on VH1's Mob Wives.

In March 2013 she signed to BMG as a songwriter. In August 2013 Claret wrote the theme song "I'm Serious" for Bravo's Eat, Drink, Love. In January 2015, Claret & her husband released a song "Daisy Bell" under the name of Tour Crush.
Claret, along with Thrice drummer Riley Breckenridge, wrote a monthly advice column called "Battle of the Sexes" in Alternative Press magazine for nearly 3 years, which was discontinued in the Winter of 2007.
