London-based singer-songwriter Claudia Kate has a sound that sits somewhere between the unequivocal outspokenness of Kate Nash and the haunting musicality of Wolf Alice, having also been compared to Brit-nominated Self Esteem for her use of spoken word and her friend-in-me lyricism. Working at home with her producer, Claudia makes a name for herself as a wholly DIY artist. It is evident through both Claudia’s music and social media presence that she is passionate about helping people feel better about themselves, and creating a community surrounding female empowerment, with protest song ‘BIG TALK, little girl’ accumulating over 1 million views on Tik Tok and self-love anthem ‘Fat’ silencing audiences at every live performance. At 23, Claudia is a regular on the South London music scene, playing her first headline show early this year to a sold-out Camden Assembly. Claudia has been consistently supported by BBC Introducing throughout her career, recently making her Radio 1 debut with new single ‘Fizzy’. She describes her music as “music made in a bedroom, to be danced to in a bedroom”.
‘Claudia Kate consistently blesses the Cambridgeshire scene with her gorgeous feel good pop tracks! Her ever relatable songs are the equivalent of a musical hot water bottle'
- BBC Introducing
“Claudia Kate has been riding on a wave of brilliance since her debut album A Damn Good Place To Start was released and in recent months she’s also debuted the wonderful ‘Fizzy’. Claudia is a woman with a LOT to say and is using her music to make her voice heard in the best way possible.”

‘If the personal is political then Claudia is a revolutionary, viva la revolution. ‘
– Paul Kerr (Glastonbury Emerging Talent Judge 2022)
‘Growing up is wild, and Kate captures that sentiment with words and sounds that paint an illustrious picture, splendidly encapsulating the beautifully chaotic life stage that is one’s early 20s’
