Claudia Vorbach is a singer-songwriter and a jazz vocalist that comes from Tübingen, Southern Germany. Jazz, Folk and Blues is crossing her songwriting.

She grew up in a musical home with Jazz and classical music. She took piano lessons and learned guitar playing as a self-educator. Later on she developed her voice with different teachers. Mainly the Jazz Vocalist Freddy Wilkes and then Fola Dada, both in Germany.

“Miss Authentic” one of her fellow musicians has called her, a nickname that expresses an essential feature of her music. The way she sings makes you feel her passionate urge to get across to the audience what she herself feels about her songs.

For her each song has a kind of impetus which she wants to follow while composing the music. Thus, she crosses musical and stylistic boundaries.

She made her debut album “Come Down Easy” (Phonector) in April 2015.

The second album called “Is There A Time?” (Release 12-21-18 by phonector) is including 14 Titels, all written and arranged by Claudia Vorbach, sounds more jazzy than the previous one. This may depend on her composing and on the changed line-up from her band: again she is accompanied by Axel Kuehn- double bass, Felix Schrack- drums and this time on piano and fender rhodes Martin Soeroes. All of them young Jazz musicians from southern Germany.

Pianist Martin Soeroes won the “Czech Jazz Contest” and made the third place in “The New York Jazz Competition” with the Jan Prax Quartett in 2014.

Because the young woman is developing her very own personality style - as a composer, as a self-confident vocalist who prefers to sing rather than talk, and as a reconciler between pop and jazz, which is not least due to her three companions, including bassist Axel Kühn
