Claire is so professional, delivered results beyond my expectations!
Claire is a great vocalist. I hired her to record vocals for a song I wrote and she definitely lifted my tune with added background vocals and harmonies. The turn around time was quick and the delivery professional. I can definitely recommend working with Claire!
Claire Holdich has performed on two of my projects to date. Claire is a professional of the highest degree. She is able to listen to a basic track or theme and create a beautiful accompanying track that fits perfectly. I can only speak with great thanks and respect for her skills and gifts as a musician.
I've used Claire on 2 projects with excellent results.
If you are in the need for flute, she will leave you with more than expected.
Will definitely use again. Thank you!
Claire was a god send.She and her flute wrapped around my song in a way that i pictured it.I will use her again if she is willing.
I have worked with Claire on several pieces, which had originally been written or recorded for guitar and Claire arranged them for flute and guitar. Claire is an excellent flute player and I have seen her perform live on many occasions on her livestream show. She also created a few video tracks of Australian animals accompanied by our music for flute and guitar.
