Listen to Claudia here > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAGj6KcytPI
With a voice like amber honey, and a twinkle in her eye that makes everyone in the audience think she is sharing a secret with them alone, Claudia Nygaard’s captivating storytelling overflows from her songwriting into her live performance. Her writing is emotionally fearless, with a rare vulnerability and tenderness one moment, then a quick wit and an outlandish, irreverant sense of humor the next. Her songs move from heartfelt to humorous and from scrappy to sensual, and all the while the stories she tells in between them are as entertaining as the songs themselves.
A former Nashville Music Row staff songwriter and a winner of the Kerrville, Texas Folk Festival songwriting competition, Nygaard has learned her craft well. Her latest CD “Let The Storm Roll In” rose to the coveted #1 position on the Roots Country Chart and #8 on the Folk DJ Chart – with every one of her self-penned compositions receiving airplay! The album received glowing reviews from the press that included five stars from Americana benchmark “Maverick” magazine. The legendary Folk music magazine “Sing Out” claimed her songs “rival the likes of Guy Clark or Ian Tyson in their plainspoken, memoir-like quality, rich with personalized images and a resonant point-of-view.”
Claudia has performed at over 200 fairs and festivals in the United States and 9 foreign countries. Endorsements from merchandisers attest to her strength as a guitarist, and she was chosen one of the Emerging Artists of 2009 by the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival.
