Claire Smith

Yesterday was my second session with Claire Smith, a promising songwriter with a very good voice. She manages to sound soulful without any of the artifice and olympian vocal gymnastics that bedevil modern “soul” music and has a freshness about her melodic writing which is infectious.

I’m looking forward to adding bass, strings and a gentle backbeat to her new song and I predict that if she perseveres and grabs her cubic centimetre of chance when it comes along, she’ll do very well.
