Album Notes
Claudia Schwab is an Ireland based, originally Austrian fiddle player/composer/yodeller. Stomping rhythms, fiery reels, consoling Indian raags and funk-beat yodelling abound in Claudia's blend of Irish, Indian, Swedish and Eastern European folk music styles overlaid with Austrian yodelling. Described as 'one of the most creative artists on the Irish music scene today' (Dr. Mel Mercier - Irish World Academy), Claudia's debut album Amber Sands (2014) features regularly on Irish national radio and has received impressive reviews by magazines such as FATEA, Folkworld and Songlines.

ATTIC MORNINGS (EP)- Special edition on vinyl (** download card included!)

Comprising five tracks of the forthcoming full album (February 2017), this record was assembled in a manner inspired by the idea of creating a sonic image of the daily writing of 'Morning Pages' (Julia Cameron: 'The Artists Way'), a practice that has accompanied Schwab for the past several years.

In this special edition, the separate tracks are woven into a collage of sounds that Claudia has been collecting in Ireland, Austria and India:

The sound of handwriting accompanied by rain falling onto a skylight window on the West Coast of Ireland. A tune and a yodel that once emerged from a bamboo hut in Hampi/South India. A waltz, traffic, birds and a coffee maker. Songs, ragas, Kerry-Tibetian singing bowls that now reappear amidst rain and thunderstorm in the Johnsbach valley....
