Phil Matthews, Bass Zenith Hot Stompers said..
" The first time I heard Claire sing, I was instantly captivated by her great feel for jazz, and the way she communicates this to her audience. She has the ability to bend both the note and the rhythm, a critical technique for jazz singing, and she has that indefinable quality in her voice, which reaches deep inside of you, to your emotions. At times she reminds me so much of the great Billy Holiday, my favourite vocalist of all time."
Lynn Roberts ( The Prince of Wales Darlaston April 2015)
"I've never heard a singer sing as though the real artist is in front of me, it's uncanny.The tone of her voice was the ghost of the singer from years ago."
Claire Longbottem, Leeds
