Claudia Vorbach is a singer-songwriter and a jazz vocalist from southern Germany. Jazz Folk and Blues is crossing her songwriting. She grew up in a musical home with Jazz and classical music. She took piano lessons and learned guitar playing as a self-educator. Later on she developed her voice with different teachers.
“Miss Authentic” one of her fellow musicians has called her, a nickname that expresses an essential feature of her music. The way she sings makes you feel her passionate urge to get across to the audience what she herself feels about her songs. For her each song has a kind of impetus which she wants to follow while composing the music. Thus, she crosses musical and stylistic boundaries.
She made her debut album “Come Down Easy” (Phonector) in April 2015.
The second album called “Is There A Time?” (Release 12-21-18 by phonector) is including 14 Titels, all written and arranged by Claudia Vorbach, sounds more jazzy than the previous one.
This may depend on her composing and on the changed line-up from her band: again she is accompanied by Axel Kuehn- double bass, Felix Schrack- drums and this time on piano and fender rhodes Martin Soeroes.
All of them young Jazz musicians from southern Germany.
Pianist Martin Soeroes won the “Czech Jazz Contest” and made the third place in “The New York Jazz Competition” with the Jan Prax Quartett in 2014. Double Bass Player Axel Kuehn won the “Europaeische Burghaeuser Nachwuchs-Jazzpreis” in 2009 with the Kuehntett.
Again she was happy to have the experienced recording engineer Tom Krueger (Ernie Watts, Joy Denalane, Joachim Kuehn/Alphonse Mouzon, Gregor Huebner etc.) with her in the studio for mixing the whole thing.
She is performing solo as a singer-songwriter with piano and guitar in small pubs, house concerts etc. and with band in live clubs.
