|Born||30 May 1986|
Opatija, SR Croatia, Yugoslavia
|Genres||Pop, Baby pop|
At the time when she first participated in Dora, the national finals for the Eurovision Song Contest, Claudia was only 12, but she was already an experienced band singer having performed all over Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia and Montenegro with the Teens - formerly known as Mići rokeri (Little Rockers).
After receiving the 2002 Porin prize, Claudia broke away from the Teens. Her first 12-song solo album “Claudia” was released just before the summer of 2002. The singles “Tako hrabar da me ostaviš” (Brave Enough To Leave Me) (one of the songs in the Best New Album awarded at the Split Festival 2001), “Ili ona ili ja” (Either Her or Me) (Zagrebfest 2001), and “Led” (Ice) (HRF 2002) gave Claudia further notability in the national music industry.
Claudia has also worked together with another member of the Croatian pop scene, Ivana Banfić, singing the song “Hrvatice vas vole” (Croatian Women Love You), dedicated to the national football team during the World Championship in Japan which enjoyed no success.
