WATCH | Canadian R&B Songstress Claire Mortifee Releases Dreamy New Single With Sharp Black And White Visuals

On Our Radar

Vancouver-born singer/songwriter Claire Mortifee has officially gotten on our radar. 

We had never heard of her before today, and to our surprise, we should've known about her much sooner. There is an undeniable purity to her music, conscious lifestyle and self-love theme throughout her work, and we dig that. She basically is uncategorizable in the sense where her music is so authentic, it becomes true to itself. 

Her vocal range is somewhat reminiscent of the Amy Winehous and Erykah Badu's of this world, layered on top of pure pop bliss. Bringing the perfect storm of vocal ability, magnetic presence and sheer confidence, she utilizes her full potential to create music that is deeply resonant, and emotionally suited for our times.

Her latest visuals accompany her latest single "Panther Paws" which you can watch above.
