- 'I won't resign my love for that old dream' is out now -
"Singer-songwriter Claire Heywood is first and foremost a poet. Her journey began with pages and pages of poems, which she turned into music after taking voice and guitar lessons online. After only a few years, she's established herself in the Denver music scene. 303 Magazine calls her "a voice that refuses to go unnoticed." -CPR NEWS
Claire Heywood is a Denver-based songwriter. Her music has been featured on CPR News, 105.5 The Colorado Sound, KTCL 93.3, and Colorado Public Radio's Indie 102.3.
After playing solo sets for small listening audiences alongside poets, comedians, and writers for several years, Heywood self-released an EP titled "The Wind, It Howls" in March 2019. In 2020, Heywood released three singles: "Python," "Letter Day," and "I Won't Resign My Love For That Old Dream." The songs were recorded and mixed at the home studio of bandmate/producer Michael Sandoval and sees Heywood take on new roles as a rhythm guitarist and co-producer.
Heywood and her band continue to draw on multiple genres: Blue-eyed soul, folk, or sometimes a touch of country. Influences range from Mazzy Star and Rilo Kiley to Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, and Lucinda Williams.
"Heywood’s casually charismatic delivery is reminiscent of a less angsty Courtney Barnett, but her brassy and mature vibrato sets her apart."
