CLAUDIA NYGAARD’s amber honey voice would be reason enough to catch her show, but she is also a quick-witted and captivating storyteller, with songs that are heartfelt, humorous, scrappy, and sensual.
Claudia Nygaard · 7:00pm
With a voice as warm and smooth as amber honey and impressive for both its power and intimacy, Claudia Nygaard delivers songs that are heartfelt, humorous, scrappy, and sensual. And so are the stories in between them. She is a captivating storyteller, with a twinkle in her eye that makes everyone in the audience think she is sharing a secret with them alone. Emotionally fearless, she shares her deepest sorrows with a rare vulnerability and tenderness one moment, then a quick wit and an outlandish, irreverent sense of humor the next.
As a salaried staff songwriter on Nashville’s Music Row, Nygaard learned her craft well. Her last CD “Let The Storm Roll In” rose to #1 on the Cashbox Roots/Country chart and #8 on the Folk DJ chart. Two of the songs, “Georgia Boy” and “J.C.” won the Kerrville, TX Folk Festival “New Folk” songwriting competition for her, but they weren’t the only songs that radio took a liking to. EVERY song on the album received airplay. “Storm” was also highly praised by the press. It received five stars from Americana benchmark magazine “Maverick”, and legendary folk music magazine “Sing Out” claimed the songs “rival the likes of Guy Clark or Ian Tyson”.
Nygaard is now poised to release her newest album "Lucky Girl". Produced by Grammy nominated Neilson Hubbard, this album contains songs that are a rollercoaster of human emotions. From the storytelling title cut which won the Tumbleweed Music Fesitival songwriting competition, to the honesty of raw and open wounds in "Me Too" and "I Wonder", to the flirty and seductive "Tumblin Down" and "Embarassed", and the victimless power of "Or Not" and "Stitches", her songwriting is fresh, imaginative, and insightful.
