Claire Daly

After attending the Berklee College of Music, she began an education of another kind — making a living as a musician. Her career has included anchoring the sax section in the Diva Big Band for 7 yrs, freelancing in New York doing EVERY imaginable kind of gig (available on request!), recording 6 CDs with the brilliant, quirky composer/pianist Joel Forrester and their band “People Like Us”, as well as two CDs as leader on Koch Jazz, (”Swing Low” and “Movin' On” now re-released on DalyBread Records) and releases of her own including “Heaven Help Us All”, “Rah! Rah! Rahsaan!” and “Mary Joyce Project: Nothing To Lose”, also on Dalybread Records. Also “2 Sisters, Inc - Scaribari” with fellow baritonist Dave Sewelson and bassist Dave Hofstra. She has performed on numerous CDs, film scores, jingles, and of course in many festivals and venues.
