Claire Parsons 'In Geometry' is a multinational collaboration between Luxembourgian-British singer Claire Parsons, Israeli guitarist Eran Har Even, French-Luxembourgian drummer and pianist Jérôme Klein, Luxembourgian bassist Pol Belardi and drummer Niels Engel. Based in Luxembourg, Brussels and Amsterdam, the project is an energetic contribution to the ever-evolving modern European jazz sound.

Their first album 'In Geometry' is the result of Claire's search for her own musical identity and is inspired by compositional techniques that explore geometric shapes and their impact on the theoretical and practical world of music. Each of the musicians brings their own vision and style to the music, creating a very intimate and exciting atmosphere with the intention of creating harmony and balance within the existing environment. The album reveals their wide influences, ranging from jazz, folk, electro, pop, rock to classical music.
