i am claire Michelle

  A Seattle based musician, my music is an Indie Rock style with an Alternative vibe. My music has been featured in the Seattle PI, Seattle Gay News, King-5, the San Fransisco Gate, and many other publications.

  The current circulating set is unique in the sense that once the music starts, it doesn’t stop. Every transition is meaningful and written with a purpose. My band and I will bring a set to your venue that is both well written and inspiring.

  I inspire my fans with my story, drive and hustle. They are dedicated and passionate people who are their true-selves without fear of judgement from others. Read their notes and see for yourself.

“It was like an angel touched my ears and held me and told me everything will be okay. I felt as if my heart was being hugged by a warm blanket on a crisp fall morning. I cried while driving. It’s not my usual style of music but holy cow I felt the chills.” – Jess Bruner on Fall
“I stumbled across one of your vlogs today and I just could not stop watching. You seem to have a have a beautiful spirit! You touched my heart. I’m looking forward to seeing more of your videos and listening to more of your music.” – Steven Root
“Hi Claire, I just wanted to say you and your story are inspirational. I have slowly begun coming out as transgender over the past year, and you have shown me that it is possible to live your dream and be who you’re meant to be.” – Carly Kepart
