Biography

With a voice that distinctively separates her from other female artists and lyrics that accurately speak to the hearts of people, Claire Stuczynski is quickly becoming a favorite in the Cleveland music scene. Claire, born and raised in dreary Erie, Pennsylvania, journeyed to Cleveland in the summer of 2006 with hopes of finding thriving channels to express her musical talents.

Claire emerged from a musically expressive family as her mother and father were both leading members of the local playhouse. Claire had been introduced to all kinds of music as a child. Her young ears were filled with the soft, sweet lullabies her mother sang to her yet also the thunder of Jimmy Page's guitar as her father would always jam the Led Zeppelin albums. Her father also rocked the 1980's in a Christian rock band that served justice to Bon Jovi's "Living on a Prayer" like none other ever had. Claire learned from her family, taking out the good and leaving out the Bon Jovi, and taught herself how to play guitar alongside her dad's James Taylor records. It wasn't long before she began creating her own melodies and writing lyrics to accompany her lovely music. She had completed her first full length song at age 13.

Throughout the years, Claire has written over a 100 songs, independently and with her former band mates, Better Off Trying (which disbanded in early 2005). In addition to Better Off Trying, Claire spent several years as a member of her church's worship band and has also done numerous side projects with an eclectic mix of musicians.
