BIOGRAPHY

A 2019 Kerrville New Folk Finalist and 2019 Songwriter Serenade Semi-Finalist, Claudia’ Gibson won first place in the 2018 Woody Guthrie Songwriting Contest for her song “Dreamers," featured on her current EP Louisiana Sky. Claudia's finely crafted Folk/Americana songs have earned praise from musicians like Gordy Quist of the Band of Heathens, who calls her “a soulful storyteller and a vivid poet,” and Grammy-nominated hit songwriter David Lee, who terms her “a songwriter’s songwriter.” James Killen of the Houston Music Review has cited Claudia’s "beautiful voice and thoughtful lyrics", while DJs on independent radio from Oregon to North Carolina continue to spin tracks from her debut album Step By Step, which earned placement in the Roots Music Report's 2017 Top Americana/Country chart. Summer 2023 finds Claudia recording an album of strong new songs - featuring the stories of ancestors, female outlaws and ghostly encounters with loved ones - with legendary Texas artist/producer Walt Wilkins at the helm. 

Claudia's songs merge her long-honed musical skills with a lifetime's experience, creating songs rich with human emotion. Whether it's the purposeful journey chronicled in "Cleveland, Ohio," the improbably successful domestic life of "Step By Step," or the uncertain dual life lived by DACA recipients in "Dreamers," Claudia's songs ring true because she describes moments and emotions we all know and recognize.
