new single "What kinda Man" by modern country artist Claudia Hoyser is picking up steam and going for national radio airplay now.
"Claudia Hoyser is definitely a female country artist to watch for in the coming year. Her new single "What Kinda Man" is one to check out. I was blown away the first time I heard it and couldn't wait to get it on the air. Claudia is the real deal. "
- Mike Betten, Music Director KLMJ Hampton, Iowa
The groundswell started with the unintentional release of her first single, "No Matter What it Costs." Here's the story behind the happy accident:
The rough track was initially considered a work in progress until it caught the attention of Big Dog Country Radio's Pd/Md Stone Hill. Claudia’s manager forwarded the rough mixed, un-mastered recording, to Stone, solely for an opinion. Although, a bit loose around the edges - Stone said it was “full of swagger, ‘refreshing,’ and ‘highly competitive with today’s country music trends.'” He offered to test the song. Listener response prompted him to add “No Matter What it Costs” into rotation, immediately. Taken by this welcome surprise, the "work in progress version" made the playlists of over 20 commercial stations in the U.S. and a few in Europe.
In the summer of '17, Claudia dropped a surprise EP release called “Steam.” In a hype-driven world, Team Hoyser ran renegade on this one and shared the news with fans as it was released, rather than ramping up the EP beforehand. This prompted a promotional radio tour with no end in sight.
Claudia has written over 70 songs with her writing partner to round out her soon-to-be full-length release called, “Red Lights Turning Green.”
Her acting debut in the Sony/Provident feature film “Wildflower,” (available on Netflix) where four of her songs are prominently highlighted in the film, has spawned more forthcoming acting roles. Claudia also has music placements in Shadow Effect, starring Cam Gigandet, which released in 2017, by Sony.
While Claudia's full time immersion in music is her primary focus, she is carving out time for another feature film.
Claudia Hoyser is 23 years old and a graduate of Kent State, with a BA degree in Communication Studies and lives in Western New York.
Expect the unexpected from Team Hoyser.
