Album Notes
In "Somewhere Else To Go", Nygaard writes about real people and real life. The listener feels a protective tenderness for "Edna", the mentally challenged woman with "hugs that don't let go". The steamy lyric of "What Her Girlfriends Say" paints a picture of the sensual desire a young woman feels for a working class man her girlfriends don't approve of. The title cut of her CD, "Somewhere Else To Go", pulls the listener into that aching loneliness created by a love gone bad. The CD is also rampant with irreverent humor. In "I Don't Need A Man (I Just Want One)", Claudia delightfully pokes fun at the gender gap.

While “Somewhere Else To Go” was not released to radio in the states, it did receive critical praise and extensive airplay overseas. Released by European record label Round Tower Music, the first single “I’ve Already Seen This Movie” climbed to the #4 position on the EMS (European Media Services) chart. It was also chosen the #1 Song Of The Summer by the Country Roads Radio Show in Marseilles, France. The follow up single “I Don’t Need A Man, (I just Want One)” went to #11 on the EMS chart, while yet another song from the CD “What Her Girlfriends Say”, climbed to the #9 position in Spain. The CD has also gathered wonderful reviews, both in North America and in several European music magazines including Country Music Roundup, Country Music International, and Southern Country.


“There is a womanly warmth in her tone that suggests some sentiments are based on experience... what comes over is a refreshing individuality...” Richard Kirk, Country Music Round-Up, UK
