Vocalist Claire Dickson grew up in a musical household in the Boston area, and is currently based in Brooklyn. Homeschooled until college, she trained herself in jazz and improvisation thanks to a fascination with Ella Fitzgerald, and by the time she had finished high school had performed at the Kennedy Center as a Presidential Scholar in the Arts, Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops and the Monterey Jazz Festival with the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra. During her undergraduate years at Harvard, she studied with Esperanza Spalding, who encouraged her development of unique sensibility that melds her jazz roots with ambient, pop and electronic approaches to music. For her 2022 release Starland, she used field recordings, synthesizers, and samples to build instruments and sound worlds that investigate dream states and sensations.

In addition to her solo work, Dickson is the vocalist for the Chase Elodia Quartet, co-leads the songwriting project Myrtle (with Camila Ortiz), and is a Metropolis Ensemble commissioned composer. Her music has been featured on Bandcamp New and Notable, Jazziz, and Downbeat, and has been recognized by ASCAP and YoungArts.

Claire Dickson graduated from Harvard College in 2019 with B.A. in psychology and music as well as the Robert Levin Prize in Musical Performance, the David McCord Prize in the Arts, and a Booth Fellowship.

For this performance, she'll be joined by guitarist Grey McMurray and drummer Lesley Mok.

$15 in advance, $20 at the door. Students with ID $10 at the door. Under 18 free.
