“She’s got a winning blend of soul and swing. This woman can do it all,” is how the Los Angeles Daily News describes vocalist Clairdee. From the moment she appears on stage until her final bow, she has the audience hooked. Jazz Times says, “Clairdee is sassy, solidly assured and, in crowd-pleasing form, has a whole lot of interpretive brilliance going on.”
With a beautiful voice and sparkling personality, this song stylist is a consummate entertainer who brings elegance and a contemporary touch to the popular music repertoire. From nightclubs and festivals, to concert halls from Tokyo to Paris, New York to Newport Beach, Clairdee is right at home whether working a smoky rendition of a blues, coaxing the tenderness of a ballad, jamming to a soulful groove, or swinging through a jazz classic. She has opened for Etta James, David Sanborn, Boz Scaggs and the Count Basie Orchestra, to name a few.
Clairdee has recorded three acclaimed recordings: MUSIC MOVES, DESTINATION MOON, and THIS CHRISTMAS, which are available online and in stores nationally.

Equally at ease in front of a camera as she is behind a microphone, Clairdee has appeared on television, industrial films and major motion pictures. She has modeled in print advertisements and her voice is heard on commercials for Macy’s, Safeway, Coca-Cola, the California State Lottery and on a new “jazz history” toy developed by Leap Frog Educational Toys.
