Heartbreaking one moment, rambunctiously disarming the next, Claudia Jacobs is a rare combination of soulful singer, heartfelt poet and spirited entertainer; “few performers can fill a stage as completely.” Part Folk Singer, part Bluesy Mama; she writes and sings songs about the human experience simply and honestly; addressing joy, pain, injustice, loneliness and hope with sass and humor.

Born in a proverbial “trunk” and raised in historically creative Northport, NY, she honed her performance and writing skills in NY’s Fast Folk Greenwich Village of the 80’s making the famed Speakeasy, her musical home for a time where she embraced the rich singer-songwriter folk music tradition she was raised in ,while adding her unique mixture of genres to create a sound all her own; drawing inspiration from the multiple styles inherent in Americana, spreading into R&B, soul and Jazz particularly in vocal style.

Awarded the title “Long Island’s Favorite Soul Singer” by the Long Island Press, “A Hard-Core Angel” by a fan and “One of the New York areas finest female singer-songwriters…” by WFUV’s John Platt; she has shared the stage with many folk favorites and is winning new fans everyday from Maine to Minnesota.
