Chanteclair are Sandi Cleary, Gloria Fraser and Brenda Johnson - three distinct voices that together make a rich and sweet-toned sound.
Discovering a mutual love of folk, bluegrass and 30's jazz, while singing in an a cappella chorus 2 years ago, they decided to step out on their own and formed Chanteclair. Influenced by the likes of the Wailin’ Jennys, 3 Sheets to the Wind and Mountain Men, their repertoire is both eclectic and challenging.
Chanteclair have been thrilled to perform at local venues and, at the Princeton Traditional Music Festival in 2018, as they hone their sublime a cappella harmonies.
Sandi and Gloria have histories of singing in a variety of choruses including Barbershop, while Brenda was classically trained in her early years, later switching to Jazz and Spiritual music in different choruses as well.
With their varying backgrounds, each of this trio is unique in their individual expressions. But together their beautiful a cappella harmonies and unique interpretations create a strong folk sound that is sure to please and entertain.
