Claire Coupland

Claire Coupland

Victoria indie-folk musician, Claire Coupland’s tender folk musings and genre bending ‘Carly Simon meets Nirvana’ adult contemporary journey are filled with harmonies rich and lyrically tense showcases Coupland’s heartbreaking stories and a voice that cuts deep to the heart of songs with raw emotion, evocative vocals, and jazz influenced chord progressions.

Once paralyzed by the fear of showing her songs to anyone else, Claire was encouraged to cultivate her love of songwriting and self-expression, with help from mentors such as Rik Emmett and Sienna Dahlen during her Contemporary Music Degree at Humber College, in Toronto. Coupland has since independently written three studio EPs, her latest, reaching #3 in the National Folk/Roots/Blues charts in Canada with !earshot. Receiving steady CBC Radio airplay across the country, On The Other Side earned Claire her first song writing nomination (“Love In Your Eyes”, Ontario Arts Council), and has received praise and glowing reviews from music magazines, blogs, and radio stations in the US, UK and Europe.
