“Her silky voice has a rich and compassionate tone, a voice with unwavering power and strength”-The Permanent Rain Press
“Coupland delivers a highly professional, and astonishingly polished production with both a powerful and tender delivery” -Americana UK
A Vancouver Islander at heart, now a Toronto dwelling singer songwriter, Claire Coupland effortlessly pulls her audience into her personal world of love and life experiences, but always with a touch of her “wicked sense of humour” (Rik Emmett, Triumph). Influenced by folk/rock artists growing up and a degree in Contemporary Music performance, she blends her own style of intricate guitar playing and jazz influenced melodies, progressions and arrangements.
With the vocal power of Susan Tedeschi paired with the velvety softness of Eva Cassidy, she brings her warm, approachable west coast charm to the stage and a graceful contemporary feel to indie folk music. She is known for her ability to “transport her listeners to another world” with her pure, clear voice, and dynamic, passionate performances; her music and personable performance approach is easily enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
Emma Scarr is an urban folk and country singer/songwriter from East London
Emma Scarr sings songs that that tell the stories of ordinary people in ordinary situations that capture everyday experience. “The sort of stories that are familiar and all around us, lovingly crafted into a poem or song in simple language with unflinching honesty. Songs that remind us that our stories are anything but mundane or unimportant – they are expressions of our times and our realities, our struggles and our joys. I use simple chord structures, instrumental parts and tunes because that’s what I can play! An honest, raw singing voice is what I think makes a song moving and authentic, sung in one’s own accent!”
