Jackfish Girl: Live!


No Video


Cheeky wit. Swing vocals. Bluesy values. Recorded live at two different concerts: the Yukon Arts Centre and the Frostbite Music Festival's Café Dégelé.

Claire Ness defies easy labels. Her influences range from cabaret to country, from Pearl Bailey to Fred Eaglesmith, with detours via Cole Porter and Edith Piaf. Her compelling voice infiltrates stealthily, with its gentle, sensual elegance. Perhaps it’s a wisp of Yukon woodsmoke, colouring those husky, gin-laced tones, or simply the honest articulations of a person raised in the awe-striking beauty that is the Yukon. Singing soulful original tunes in both English and French, Claire writes odes to 2-cycle engine oil, ballads of bad fishing buddies, uplifting meteorological metaphors, and bona fide Yukon love songs from a candid heart.
