Claudia plays a colourful mixture of musical styles - mellow yet uplifting acoustic sweetness with hints of folk, jazz, soul and a good sense of fun!! Claudia’s favourite bands/musicians are Queen, Kate Bush, Skunk Anansie, David Bowie, Tori Amos, BB King, Carole King, Aretha Franklin and a whole lot more but she sounds nothing like any of them!
In her career as a musician Claudia has played venues as the Cambridge Folk Festival club stage, London's Shepherds Bush Empire, O2 Academy in Sheffield, the Cambridge Corn Exchange, Cambridge Rock Festival, BBC radio and the much missed Secret Garden Party festival.
Claudia is currently working on her debut album "Storms & Silver Linings" which has turned into a bit of an epic undertaking. I shan’t give it a release date until I’m holding the CD in my hands!
“If there is a more upbeat and positive person in Cambridge than Claudia McKenzie then I’d like to meet that person,” (Phyll, Cambridge Fund Raiser & Gig Organiser).
"Claudia seems to be more enjoyable every time I've seen her by not being afraid to experiment with songs covering a variety of subjects delivered with wit, great musical skill and one of the most engaging personalities around." (Michael Judkins - Float Like A Butterfly project)
