Claudia Nygaard / Press

"Stunning! The whole disc is a sheer delight... this is exceptionally good." FIVE out of five stars!

Maverick Magazine

“Claudia Nygaard’s music invitingly straddles the fence between country and folk with a band sound that is decidedly unplugged and artfully laid-back in support of her sensually lyrical alto. And then, there’s the matter of her songs-- that rival the likes of Guy Clark or Ian Tyson in their plainspoken, memoir-like quality, rich with personalized images and a resonant point-of-view.”

"The immigration saga that accompanies “Big Country” and the naiveté of youth recalled in “J.C.” are relayed from both a tender and touching perspective. Yet Nygaard’s also got a scrappy side to her as well. Her sympathetic homage to Miss Kitty of TV’s “Gunsmoke” fame is absolutely hilarious and her plea to a reticent lover in the song simply titled “Say It” conveys both desperation and desire without resorting to self-pity. Nygaard is a knowing soul and Let The Storm Roll In offers a torrent of wisdom and reflection."

Lee Zimmerman - No Depression

“Nothing short of amazing… Comprised of a dozen equally excellent tunes, “Let The Storm Roll In” reveals Nygaard to be one of Americana music’s hidden gems.”

Jeffrey Sisk - In Tune, The Daily News

"How warm and sensual her voice can sound... After this great album, we are all eagerly awaiting a successor."

"One of the finest singer/songwriter/storyteller collections in recent memory..."His Left Side" is utterly brilliant."

“Claudia has a talent for finding in a simple phrase the most excellent songs, where anyone else might hear nothing. I am continually amazed by the emotions she can evoke; heart wrenching (I cry every time), to a social statement which could be a call to action or at least some inner searching, to sexy and funny that leaves everyone in the room delightfully, joyfully heated.  Always delighted to have her at Kerrville!”

Dalis Allen, Kerrville Folk Festival

"Claudia Nygaard has the depth of soul one would expect from a full grown woman. No little girl voice (so popular in music today) on this album. Good, honest songwriting, displaying both humor and wisdom, with all around great performances."

Gail Davies, Producer & Artist
