Claire Piersol grew up in Edmonds, Washington and graduated from Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington. While at WWU, Claire performed as a guest artist and substitute in multiple jazz groups in the Pacific Northwest. Those performances led to opportunities throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

In 2001, Claire won the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival Outstanding Clarinet Soloist Award and the Meadowdale High School Louis Armstrong Jazz Award. Claire worked as a counselor and instructor at The Sacramento Traditional Jazz Society Youth Camp, Adult Camp and The Heebie Jeebies Youth Jazz Camp from 2004-2008.

Bria Skonberg and Claire co-led the Mighty Aphrodite Jazz Band. The MAJB was a talented and entertaining all-female jazz band that recorded four CDs, performed at several jazz festivals, and sailed on two jazz cruises from 2005-2010. Each of the band members have gone on to lead successful solo careers and are performing regularly throughout the United States and abroad.
