Claire Northey Short Info

French-born violinist Claire Northey brings an air of the North African coast to the UK. Combining French & African melodies with looped beats & vocals, Claire’s music is inspired by her time writing for theatre productions in France and Egypt. Recently she has been joined by trumpet player Nick Oakley.
In 2015, Claire was a writer/ collaborator with
DJ Yoda & The Breakfast of Champions. Their LP won album of the day on BBC Radio 6 and the project toured the UK at venues & festivals such as Kentish Town Forum, Camden Jazz Cafe, Glastonbury, Bestival and Boomtown.
“As far away from Western pop tradition as you can get, her jazz/ folk odysseys weave playfully between trip-hop, Eastern European and Arabic influences... For fans of Bjork, Ennio Morricone and Zero 7.”
