More on Claire McDaniel...

Music, Music, Music

As the Drummer and Percussionist for the rock-based pop band, the Wooly Vicars (, Claire often spends her free time dreaming of the next percussion piece she is going to add to her arsenal of rhythmic tools. She primarily plays a trejon drum because that's just the kind of edgy she is! Claire and the band are enjoying the Austin Texas Music scene and have released their first album, Dynamite.  

Claire’s percussion obsession began at Pulse Drumming in Ventura, California in 2005. She studied Irish instruments (bodhran, bones and spoons) with Aaron Plunkett and Trey O’Toole. In addition, she learned doumbek techniques from renowned Arabic musician Souhail Kaspar. Claire also plays the djembe, bongos and hand percussion too numerous to list.

Claire currently has an empowering new project in the works that involves establishing a national non-profit organization to build confidence through cajons for girls well as assisting elementary schools in obtaining cajons for their music departments. She believes in the power of the cajon, the therapeutic effects of drumming and helping girls become drummers if they so desire. Claire's cajon dreams are fueled by the fact that she wasn't allowed to play drums when she was young because, "Girls don't play drums." Ah, revenge is so sweet when it helps others. Now is the time to get the wool outta of yer ears!
