About

Ōtautahi poet and writer Claudia Jardine has long had a disposition for songwriting and all things musical, a journey stretching from her early formative years into the depths of semi-transitory adulthood. Having a promising start topping Rockquests-a-plenty in her teenage years led Jardine to releasing an effectual pop-folk EP North in 2019, a slot at the irreverent Welcome to Nowhere festival and various local performances over the years.

Always lyrically inclined and enjoying the sublime nature of words and sounds, Jardine has worked with pen and strings since basically forever; an orbit she continues with her new band, Goodbye Starlet.
