Since Claire Martin's debut, The Waiting Game
(Linn Records, 1992), she has been an instant success. She is hailed by many as the best British singer of the decade, with numerous prestigious awards and over ten albums to her credit. Martin started singing as a teenager and found her calling as a jazz singer early on. Having been influenced by such artists as Shirley Horn, Sheila Jordan, Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald, she has successfully created her own unique sound that has the same iconic quality as her predecessors. Claire Martin has already left a clearly indelible mark on the genre. She undoubtedly will remain to do so, as her career continues to flourish.
