You might even want to come to Palatka have some dinner, shop a little then head down to the concert.    
Claire Vandiver was born in Nashville, TN the "Music City". It was only fitting that she would turn out to be a singer. She recalls singing her whole life and somehow always being involved in music. Growing up in a musical family she was influenced and exposed to many styles of music. Claire’s father Chip Vandiver, is an accomplished blues/southern rock guitar player who co-writes and accompanies Claire at her gigs. Claire has been honing her craft playing gigs for the past six years at many venues in the Florida area. They have met countless people and have made many friends along the way. After high school Claire attended Daytona State College where she was enrolled in their music production program for a few semesters. She then decided to focus on her career full time. Recently Claire opened up for folk artist Heather Maloney, at Cafe 11 in St. Augustine and the near future Claire hopes to land as an opening act for major artists. Now at the age of 22, Claire released her debut Ep on July 1st, 2016. These original tunes can be found on iTunes, or order a physical copy at Follow Clair and stay tuned via social media and/or
