ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Diverse sound suited to many different tastes...

...Claire\'s music touches on a full spectrum of musical styles and poetic emotion from a little humor with some of the blues and jazz genres to peaceful contemplations in her classical and folk instrumentals.

With clear, dynamic vocals, and thoughtful guitar arrangements, Claire\'s simplicity and character of sound is woven from heart to heart.

Shortly: folkmusic at its very best!
When I discovered Claire on CDBABY, I immediately remembered the first line of Gilbert O’Sullivans song Clair. “Clair the moment I met you, I swear, it felt as if something, somewhere had happened to me which I couldn’t see…”. Now, everytime I take Claire’s album Face to Face off the shelf, I begin to whistle that pleasant tune again. But as soon as Claire begins to sing I’m totally concentrated on her marvellous songs. Claire is a very talented singer and owns a crystal clear voice. She’s also a gifted songwriter as she proves on Face to Face. Twelve out of the 13 songs she wrote herself. Number 13 is a perfect cover of a Carole King song (Home Again). Claire’s music is refreshing in its simplicity and directness. Her songs have a timeless quality, evoking memories of a wide range of famous female singers. Shortly: folkmusic at its very best!

Fresh, Clear, Subtle, Artful, Elegant. Beyond genre - A must hear!
This CD stops you in your tracks the first time you hear it. Everything else quickly slides away as Claire takes you on a wonderful journey. I was up out of my chair, standing by the speakers, wanting to capture the very essence of her music. The guitar work is elegant -- crystal clear. The lines of the songs are at times subtle, humerous, lyrical. Couple this with one of the most expressive voices of our decade, and you have a quality performance. I'm a good musician -- and couldn't find a thing to add to this minimalist recording -- it's so perfectly arranged. Occasionally if your're very, very lucky, you get a chance to hear art song crafted by a master. This is a must for every discriminating lover of song, no matter the genre.

I saw Claire perform at a musician's jam in St. Paul recently and was blown away. This album is outstanding. The singing, songwriting, and musicianship are first rate. Great chops but very tasteful. Highly recommended.
