Victoria Jazz Society

Claire Coupland Band

Saturday, August 26 | Ship Point | 12pm

Victoria’s indie-folk singer-songwriter/guitarist Claire Coupland creates exciting songs with bluegrass, folk, soft rock, and grunge flavours, as seen in her most recent 2023 album, New Light. Coupland has independently written three studio EPs, her latest, reaching #3 in the National Folk/Roots/Blues charts in Canada with !earshot. Receiving steady CBC Radio airplay across the country, she has received praise and glowing reviews from music magazines, blogs, and radio stations in the US, UK, and Europe. Her band captures spontaneous and organic interpretations of Coupland’s songs with raw emotion and fresh arrangements; all the while supporting Coupland’s signature folk fingerpicking and evocative vocals. Coupland will celebrate the release of the record with a cross-Canada and UK tour February through July, and you can catch her and her band live at the Harbour Blues ‘n Roots Festival!
