Vocalist/composer/arranger Andrea Claburn was born in Baltimore to a classical pianist mother and jazz aficionado father and raised in the classical tradition, studying both piano and violin before turning to vocal jazz. A conservatory-trained musician, Andrea’s musical depth shapes her exceptional vocal style, with a “highly instrumental use of her voice” that is “riveting to hear.” (L.R. Bailey) As a composer and lyricist, she breathes life into new songs as well as old, writing and arranging contemporary jazz standards, and lyricizing a wide range of instrumental material. A powerful storyteller and charismatic performer, Andrea Claburn's vocal style is infused with a wide variety of musical influences while remaining strongly rooted in the jazz tradition.
Raised and educated largely in Northern California, Andrea holds two degrees: a Bachelor of Arts (Humanities) from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Bachelor of Music (Jazz Studies) from the California Jazz Conservatory, where she was mentored by some of the finest jazz artists on the West Coast. In her sophomore year at the CJC, Andrea was awarded the Conservatory's highest vocal honor, the Mark Murphy Vocal Scholarship, an award given to a singer who “demonstrates exceptional creativity and artistic promise.”
In August, 2015 Andrea became a member of the vocal faculty of her alma mater, the California Jazz Conservatory, where she teaches private lessons in vocal technique, performance, and musicianship; she also teaches group classes in technique and jazz performance and special workshops (Arranging for Vocalists; Stage Presence 101) to adult learners of all ages at the Jazzschool Community Music School (at the CJC). She is an Artist in Residence at the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, San Francisco’s premiere public high school for the performing arts, and she teaches private lessons according to the principles of Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method at her home studio in SF’s Mission District.
Andrea has performed at prominent venues throughout the Bay Area and beyond, and has worked with many of Northern California's most sought-after instrumentalists. Her debut album, Nightshade, was released in January, 2017 to wide critical acclaim and features jazz luminaries Matt Clark (piano), Sam Bevan (bass), Alan Hall (drums), Terrence Brewer (guitar), Erik Jekabson (trumpet), Kasey Knudsen (alto sax), and John Santos (percussion).
