I was born in 1987 in Budapest, Hungary, to parents who are both professional musicians. I sang before I could talk, and started
playing the piano when I was 4. The whole family moved to Sweden, and by the age of 12 I could be seen “guesting” on my parents’
gigs in venues all around the country.
After discovering my dad's fusion albums with Chick Corea, John Patitucci, Mezzoforte, and others, I more or less stopped listening
to vocalists. One night before I went to sleep, I listened to Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, and woke up abruptly a few hours
later with a song in my head. I quickly had to play it and write it down. Rainbow Dreams was born. I was 12, and I remember my dad
came in to my room and said: “Girl, it's three in the morning. Stop playing or you'll be late for school tomorrow. Again”.
After graduating from the University of Music in Malmoe, I – then appearing as Claudia Dancs – rapidly established myself as one of
the leading singers of my generation.
In 2009, I had the honor of singing backing vocals with a gospel choir at one of Stevie Wonder's shows. Working with Stevie inspired
me a lot, and when I arrived back home early in the morning, after having had conversations with him about God and music, I sat
down by the piano, and the song All Through You just burst out of my head, all at once.
After taking time out following the birth of my son, I got back on stage, and in 2017, I reached the final in Danish “Young Jazz”
competition. I also guest starred on Antonio Faraò’s latest album ‘Eklektik’ (with Marcus Miller), on two tracks.
In 2019 – after many years of preparation – proudly released my debut album I'm Strong with A-list musicians Jimmy Haslip, Vinnie
Colaiuta, Gerard Presencer, and Eliel Lazo guest starring on selected tracks.
The album received excellent reviews worldwide, and was nominated for The Danish Music Awards Jazz in two categories: 'Best
Vocal Album' and 'Best New Act'. In 2020, the album was released in Japan.
