Claire Coupland


With powerhouse vocals comparable to Susan Tedeschi and Basia Bulat paired with the velvety softness, clarity and intonation of Eva Cassidy and The Staves, there is a pureness to Claire’s voice that can silence a room. By the same token, she can pull audiences into exciting head bobbing, high energy belting and strumming renditions. Whether it is solo or with her band, the Humber music grad is sure to deliver the highest quality of performance that comes from years of experience delivering excellence onstage. Her warm, funny and engaging stage manner on top of her heart-wrenching songs, ornate finger picking, and velvety smooth voice are sure to stay with her audience long after the show is over. Claire “sings like a broken sparrow” (Vance Gilbert). Her songs build and breathe, and are written without losing the emotional platform great songs come from. She brings a fresh, graceful feel to contemporary folk, and is sure to move audiences with skilfully crafted songs while charming them with her “wicked sense of humour” (Rik Emmett, Triumph).
