Claire Coupland


There is a pureness to Claire's voice that can silence a room. A moving songwriter and compelling guitarist, Claire combines smooth folk finger picking, jazz influenced progressions and a powerful yet tender delivery. She has been relentlessly touring her new album with 5 tours in 2023 alone, drawing audiences in with warm and personable performances - always with a touch of her “wicked sense of humour” (Rik Emmett). After joining forces with some of LA’s finest musicians (Dawes, Sam Weber), "New Light" presents fresh and spontaneous arrangements with mood filled percussion, slinky guitars, sparkling piano and shades of grunge and California rock. Claire has toured all over Canada and The UK, reached #3 in the national earshot radio charts, garnered song writing nominations, had steady CBC & BBC UK airplay, and rave reviews from music publications around the world who laud her lyricism, deft guitar playing and rich vocals. Claire Coupland brings a graceful contemporary feel to indie folk music.
