Creating soulful music to lift your vibe
Claudia Carawan is an award-winning singer/songwriter and speaker whose music runs deep. Her voice has been described as “goose-bump inducing” and her original songs feature buoyant melodies fused with feel-good lyrics. At the heart of Carawan’s music and mission is a belief that music is transformative. She has independently released 5 CDs:
Out of the Blue: Positive pop
Fearless: Music to help you soar
Joy Rising: Music to help you get your “joy rising” Unfinished Business: Sassy, sexy blues & R&B Magic in the Air: A sparkling holiday collection
Carawan was so inspired after hearing Maya Angelou speak that she began creating “Music Lessons” (presentations that integrate story-telling, music and humor). As a speaker Carawan weaves her messages, music and humor together seamlessly into presentations for conferences, retreats, churches and professional organizations.
