Vocalist/composer/arranger Andrea Claburn was born in Baltimore to a classical pianist mother and jazz aficionado father and raised in the classical tradition, studying both piano and violin before turning to vocal jazz as a young adult. A conservatory-trained musician, Andrea’s musical depth shapes her exceptional vocal style, with a “highly instrumental use of her voice” that is “riveting to hear.” As a composer and lyricist, she breathes life into new songs as well as old, writing and arranging contemporary jazz standards, and lyricizing a wide range of instrumental material, from Ellington to Metheny. A powerful storyteller and charismatic performer, Andrea Claburn brings the music to life with passion, intelligence, and wit, her style infused with a wide variety of musical influences while remaining strongly rooted in the jazz tradition.
Raised and educated largely in Northern California, Andrea holds two degrees: a Bachelor of Arts (Humanities) from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Bachelor of Music (Jazz Studies) from the California Jazz Conservatory, where she was mentored by some of the finest jazz artists on the West Coast. In October, 2010, her sophomore year at the CJC, Andrea was awarded the Conservatory's highest vocal honor, the Mark Murphy Vocal Scholarship, an award given to a singer who “demonstrates exceptional creativity and artistic promise.” In August, 2015 Andrea became a member of the vocal faculty of her alma mater, the California Jazz Conservatory, where she teaches private lessons in vocal technique, performance, and musicianship. for more info www.andreaclaburn.com
