Blues songstress Sweet Claudette is a mistress of raw and funky urban blues and a force to be reckoned with. Her down home style is contagious and guaranteed to raise the roof!

Born in Heflin, Alabama, her family soon migrated north and eventually settled in Detroit, Michigan, home of the Motor City blues. She always retained her southern connections and returned to live in Alabama as an adult and now moves back and forth between her homes in Detroit and Alabama.

As a performer of classics and her own original songs, she is an ambassador of low-down urban blues. With six albums under her belt, this blues woman cites Alberta Adams, Etta James, B.B. King, Katie Webster, and John Lee Hooker as her biggest influences. Aside from her relentless travels and music making, Claudette finds time to share her knowledge and experience with kids through a Math in Music Program that she created in partnership with Blues in the Schools.

Sweet Claudette continues to gain international acclaim while performing at festivals, clubs and lounges in the United States and Canada. Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Claudette Harrell Manning can surely tell you why they call her Sweet!
