Entitelt as "Come Down Easy" this acoustic album has a laid-back mood and a very natural, uncontrived singing. A jazzy kind of lightness, soulful vocals, some flowing hip hop grooves and few folk pop songs is what you can hear. All 13 songs were written & arranged by Claudia Vorbach. So far some listeners felt reminded to the music of "folk jazz-singer-songwriters" i.e. Terry Callier, Rickie Lee Jones & Joni Mitchell. Claudia was very happy to be supported by the experienced recording engineer Tom Krueger (Ernie Watts, Joy Denalane, Joachim Kuehn/Alphonse Mouzon, Gregor Hübner etc.) in the Klangraum Studio Mainz. Taking care for a pretty good sound.
