Claire has an eclectic musical background which she uses to influence and inspire her as a singer/songwriter.
She started playing the piano from a young age and it was through her piano exams that she discovered a love for singing. She quickly developed a love for classical, operettas and musical theatre which led to her gaining a place at the London School of Musical Theatre. After graduating she performed in various musicals before a drive to expand her musical repertoire led to new paths.
Claire had her professional breakthrough performing with Rihanna as a support act on her Good Girl Gone Bad UK Tour where she performed at some of the UKs largest arenas including the stage to some of the world's most prestigious performers, the infamous Wembley Stadium. She continued as a recording artist with tracks entering the UK chart and made numerous TV and concert appearances
Not ready to give up her classical past, Claire returned to theatre and achieved a lifelong dream of performing at London's most iconic venue, The Royal Albert Hall.
She continued performing in various shows worldwide before discovering a love for Hard Dance music by chance at Tomorrowland. It was at this moment she found her true passion and made it her mission to become one of the greatest writers and performers within the world of Hard Dance.
To ease the struggles of lockdown, Claire began creating covers of Hard Dance tracks by creating acoustic versions and acapella multi layered vocal harmonies. With a passion to dominate the scene, she built her home studio and had her first hard dance release "Distraction" with Crypton on Qore by Q-Dance. Claire has always endeavored to work across Hardstyle, Frenchcore and Hardcore including the Hardtunes top 10 hit "Breakaway" with Sakyra and Hysta.
Wanting to create a name synonymous with Hard Dance that encompasses her varied musical influence, she created her alias, CØDA. She has since worked with Clockartz on a number of tracks including "Valley Of Insanity", "Phantom Of The Opera" and future releases which were premiered at I Am Hardstyle in Germany.
Claire is a dynamic performer with an unrivalled passion for Hard Dance who aims to elevate the Hard Dance industry not only with her vocal ability, but with a show stopping performance and magnetic stage presence.
From classical, to pop via world music singing in a number of languages, Claire's extensive musical past has allowed her to build a repertoire that she now uses to influence Hard Dance music by changing perceptions and pushing limits to create music without boundaries.
