At the tender age of seven, this charismatic twenty-something singer/songwriter knew that music sparked her world.
Jayme grew up in Washington state active in the music community, until 2011. She was the first freshman to be accepted into her high school’s Select Choir program. For four years, this award-winning choir competed against other groups, which took them to places such as New York City’s Carnegie Hall and Cal State Fullerton. It was during those years that Jayme fine-tuned classical skills such as harmonizing and stretching her vocal range. In her senior year of high school, Jayme took vocal lessons from a trained jazz musician at Cornish College of Music in Seattle. Her passion for the American classics has made her a unique singer in that she fuses a classic style into many of her songs. She has often been referred to as an old soul by many who hear her.
Since branching out as a solo artist, Jayme has performed at numerous venues, headlining at the historic Tacoma venue Jazz Bones on more than one occasion – including a two-and-a-half-hour headliner for their Memorial weekend bash.
In 2013, Jayme Claire continued to pursue her passion for music, graduating from Pasadena’s California College of Music (CCM) with a degree in contemporary music. Jayme had the honor of learning from Kevin Dorsey, one of Michael Jackson’s director of music for twenty-five years.
She has also been vocally trained by the legendary Oren Waters of “The Waters Family”, recently featured in Grammy-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom.
After graduating, Jayme has continued to expand her performance skills by working with the legendary Peggi Blu, known by many as “American Idol’s vocal coach from hell, but really Heaven Sent!”
Since relocating, she has performed at West Hollywood’s Whisky A Go Go, twice at the House of Blues, Sunset Strip, Xen Lounge in Studio City, The Olympic Collections, Los Angeles, has been a featured artist on Davi Davenport LIVE TV Show held at Beverly Hill’s Spaghettini & Dave Koz Lounge, and has performed at PIPS on LaBrea.
She has made guest appearances on The Avalon stage in Downtown Los Angeles, performed twice at Sherry Gordy Presents in Las Vegas, and recently sang for fashion designer, Sue Wong’s, VIP party in her Los Angeles studio. Jayme also continues to make requested appearances throughout the year.
Currently living in the South Bay, Jayme Claire has performed at venues such as Manhattan Beach’s Shade Hotel, Hermosa Beach’s Standing Room, Hawthorne’s Eureka Tasting Kitchen, Palos Verdes’ Terranea Resort, Redondo Beach’s BALEEN Lounge, and has been a guest singer at the Light House Cafe in Hermosa Beach with multiple artists.
Jayme’s powerhouse vocals continue to open the doors performing with LA’s finest musicians. Recently, Jayme Claire released her debut -EP- album titled “Masquerade”!
Representing a different approach in her musical journey, this 5-track contemporary album has opened doors never before fathomed.
Presenting audiences with heart-felt vocal performances, it’s Jayme’s personal mission: to inspire and encourage all ages to never give up dreaming and to always have hope.
