Genre: Contemporary Folk, Songwriter
Claire Ness is a Yukon-born songstress, clown, vaudevillian, circus teacher, producer, and director. Her songs (in both English and French) are characterized by her unorthodox metaphors, comparing lovers to trophy hunters, hockey pucks and European cities. Her clever sense of humour is followed closely by her tender, star-gazing lyrics, adding an enthralling depth to her music – odes to 2-cycle engine oil, ballads of bad fishing buddies, uplifting meteorological metaphors, and bona fide Yukon love songs from a candid heart. Claire’s has two albums – “Hopeless Romantic” (April 2013) and “Jackfish Girl Live!” (Sept 2014).
