Joy Rising Reviews
Claudia Carawan’s new CD “Joy Rising” is an absolute joy! The songs are fresh, uplifting and guaranteed to inspire and renew. Claudia is one of a number of positive music artists that combine soul and gospel music with affirmative and inclusive lyrics, and what a powerful combination that is! We are all blessed by her music and her Presence in our world.

Claudia’s Joy Rising CD went around-and-around in our car for weeks, and remains a go-to disc when we’re in need of a lift. Joy Rising is full of songs you’ll find yourself singing over and over again!

Claudia has done it again. I’m shouting “Yes” as I sit behind my desk listening to her inspiring words of “I Claim A Blessing.” Each song is more moving and inspiring than the next, taking me higher and higher into the consciousness of infinite possibility. -Ester Nicholson, Author of Soul Recovery – 12 Keys To Healing Addiction, international recording artist and motivational teacher.
Dear Claudia: Your recent CD, Joy Rising, is absolutely beautiful. The words are eloquently written and inspiring. Your sweet, soulful voice fills the room with uplifting and joyful tunes that linger in my mind for hours after listening. Thank you for sharing your talent. I can only hope you continue to use your talent for the greater good in which you do so well.

The CD Joy Rising needs to come with a warning: Listen only if you are prepared to be humming, singing and dancing all day long with a sunny disposition and an ear to ear smile- and then some! Driving is more enjoyable with Joy Rising playing but careful with what your hands and feet are doing— again this CD needs a warning!

Joy Rising review excerpt from Sound Connections, 2014
This is the newest offering from Virginia-based Claudia Carawan and it is a great CD. Claudia has a lot of soul and it’s reflected in her rhythms and vocals. She is just plain funky….. Claudia calls her music “Positively soulful music” and this collection of songs is about finding and sustaining joy. And, believe me, you’ll be joyful while you listen to these positive songs and hopefully, that joy will sustain you throughout your day.
