We are delighted to welcome award-winning vocalist Claire Martin OBE

We are delighted to announce that we will be representing the inimitable and very wonderful award-winning British jazz vocalist Claire Martin, OBE.

Claire has established herself as a tour de force on the UK jazz scene, winning at the British Jazz Awards eight times and collecting a BASCA Gold Badge Award for her contribution to jazz during her career. Since signing to the prestigious Glasgow-based Linn Records in 1990, Claire has since released 18 albums with the label, collaborating with musical luminaries including Martin Taylor, John Martyn, Stephane Grappelli, Kenny Barron, Richard Rodney Bennett and Jim Mullen on many of these recordings.

Claire will tour Europe in 2024 with her all-Swedish trio as she celebrates another career milestone: recording her twentieth album for Linn Records. Uppsala-born pianist/arranger Martin Sjöstedt leads the trio comprising bassist Niklas Fernqvist and drummer Daniel Fredriksson. There will also be the release of her new album ‘I Watch You Sleep’ which is a collaboration with the American conductor and pianist Scott Dunn and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in March 2023. On this they pay homage to their dear friend Sir Richard by recording his songs alongside songs that Richard loved to perform.
