Blues songstress Sweet Claudette and her 5-6 pc bad azz band deliver a witty, saucey, sassy and tons of fun show to her audiences. She can take it from the stage and bring it tableside direct to you. Sweet Claudette is a mistress of raw and funky urban blues and a force to be reckoned with. Her down home style is contagious and guaranteed to raise the roof!
�Sweet Claudette is a singer with a deep, understated delivery. Although she is not a shouter, she can belt a lyric out.� ~ Blue Skunk Music ~ as posted on In a Mood.blogspot.com

Born in Heflin, Alabama, her family soon migrated north and eventually settled in and currently resides in Detroit, Michigan, home of the Motor City blues. Sweet Claudette produces an urban blues sound that entertains audiences on U.S. and Canadian tours.

As a performer of classics and her own original songs, she is an ambassador of low-down, witty blues. �Claudette is the epitome of Detroit finger-snappin� party blues, but she�s also a master at the low down.� ~Mark Gallo � BluesByte E-Zine ~ With several albums under her belt, this blues woman cites Alberta Adams, Etta James, Katie Webster, and John Lee Hooker as her biggest influences.
