A stellar performer in her own right, Claudia Morris’ career has seen her take to the stage in shows such as ‘Camelot’ at The Liverpool Playhouse and ‘Guys ‘n Dolls’ at the Cheltenham Everyman Theatre. She was also in the original cast of ‘Buddy’ in London’s West End at the Victoria Palace Theatre.
After a short break to raise her family she released her debut album ‘Love And Demons’ in 2009. She went on to explore her love of jazz with her second album ‘Twelve O’Clock Tales’ in 2012. This opened up the opportunity for Claudia to create and embark on her very own passion project – the 21 date tour around the UK of ‘Secret Love’. It ran to great acclaim last autumn and now returns due to popular demand with 26 dates in total.

What they’re saying about Claudia Morris:
“The first class musicianship and arrangements on Twelve O’clock Tales surround Claudia’s voice, but allow the high polish of her voice to shine through. Claudia is an exciting and rising star to watch.” –Nigel Williams, Jazz FM
“If this is a return album for the vocal talents of Ms Morris (whose own natural slant on ‘scat’ stands comparison with the incredible skills of Ella Fitzgerald), then I urge her management team to get its spurs on and exercise her talents in other fields. Her voice is beguiling and charming…” –Ian Robertson, Reviewed Online – The UKs No. 1 Review website
“Passion and clarity delivered with a velvet voice, Claudia lights any stage” – Sue Marchant, BBC Radio
Claudia Morris sings with flair and beauty, innocence and integrity, & with her colleagues catches appetisingly the hip, louche nature of the 1950s Sinatra-era. When the three sing together, it’s even more magical still – RODERIC DUNNETT, Musical Theatre Review
