Claire Boucher is a pixie-like musician who falls somewhere between Enya and Mariah Carey — fully chilled-out and chillout-able, but with a poppy, vocal-twisting edge. She’s also an artist who most often performs all on her lonesome, looping her voice into echoing patterns and backing it all with sounds coaxed from a sea of boards and wires.
