Coffee House Open Mic Starring Claire Coupland
March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
There is a pureness to Claire’s voice that can silence a room. A moving songwriter and compelling guitarist, Claire combines smooth folk finger picking, jazz influenced progressions and soaring melodies. She effortlessly pulls her audience into her personal world of life experiences. Like many others, the stasis of the pandemic left Claire Coupland to look inward toward a collection of stories and songs that had been lying dormant in her imagination. Darker and more vulnerable reckonings of self worth, escaping abuse, painful goodbyes, fragile family dynamics and hope for the future are all intricately woven themes in her sophomore album entitled, “New Light”, coming February, 2023. After joining forces with Juno award winning musician Sam Weber (Bahamas) and some of LA’s finest musicians (Dawes, Alan Hampton, Garret Lang), the album presents fresh and spontaneous arrangements of her songs with mood filled percussion, slinky guitars, sparkling piano and shades of grunge and California rock. Claire Coupland brings a graceful contemporary feel to indie folk music, always with a touch of her “wicked sense of humour” (Rik Emmett, Triumph). All Ages Event
