Need smooth vocals, silvery strings, or haunting melodies? I gotchu! As the band leader of Youth in a Roman Field, a full-time member of San Fermin, and a freelancer in & out of NYC, I have tons of experience composing, recording, and performing all over the world and in various projects. I am committed, hardworking, respectful, and *very funny.*
A violinist, vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, actor, and advocate originally from North Dakota and based in Queens, NY, I have been singing and playing the violin for 27 years. I am the daughter of musicians and have spent most of my professional life in Chicago, LA, NYC, and on the road making music, acting, and working in the service industry. I lead the ghost folk band Youth in a Roman Field; our second album, Storm Conductor (produced with the Grammy-award-winning Stewart Lerman) is available everywhere. Our music has been featured in theatre, webseries, and video projects, including episodes of Matching Pursuit and The Dreamers. I joined the Brooklyn-based art rock powerhouse San Fermin in 2016 and have contributed to the bands Glad Fanny, Albert, 2/3 Goat, and The Jamie Elman Trio. I have toured with Delta Rae and Once The Musical, in which I also performed on Broadway. I sit in with a handful of bands in the NYC area, frequently performing with Behaviorist, Haunting Renditions, and Apartment Sessions. I also work as a composer, arranger, and performer for theatre, film, and dance. Besides making music, I wait tables, go to therapy, and advocate for progressive causes and change in the US through both work & volunteer opportunities. Music has been a driving force and valuable comfort in my life, and I love making it and learning through it every day.

6 Reviews - 2 Repeat ClientsEndorse Claire Wellin
If you don’t choose Claire, it’s one of two things:
1. I am not doing a good job of communicating. Or:
2. You don’t want to make beautiful art.
I give Claire no direction: she knocks my socks off. I give Claire too much direction: she knocks my socks off. I give Claire crazy nonsense direction: she knocks my socks off (and in so doing helps me figure out what I was asking in the first place).
Claire is simply the best. She has been on half my tracks and I wish it were more.
I am a repeat-repeat-repeat collaborator with Claire, and my goal is to make it many more. She is a true collaborator and shares both her talents and her incredible musical instincts. I have gotten stuck on "A" or "B", and she has provided candid opinions and incredible insights to get us through. She is truly a pleasure to work with. Claire is very easy to communicate with (and tolerates the occasional dissertation!)
I don't want to share my full view of Claire with the world, because if I did she would be so busy that she'd never have time to work with me again! And I am extremely eager for the chance to work with such an incredible and generous talent again and again. I cannot say enough!
Claire is an amazing vocalist that always delivers on time and exactly in the way I need. I’ll work with her again!
Claire is a great singer AND a great communicator! We agreed a recording date in advance based on my deadline and Claire delivered a brilliant performance on time. Perfect!
Great voice, pleasure to work with!
