About the Artist(s)

Join us to celebrate the release of Angela’s second album, “Love for Connoisseurs”, featuring the vocalist’s original lyrics to jazz compositions by modern-day composers based in New York City and Vancouver. Her vision for this project was to create new vocal jazz repertoire by collaborating with composers that write innovative, yet catchy, bebop and classic jazz melodies. She caught listeners’ ears with her critically-acclaimed debut album, “The Night We Couldn’t Say Good Night” and won the 2021 JazzTimes Readers’ Poll for best female jazz vocalist. JazzTimes writes that Angela “possesses a winsome, brightly burnished, pliable voice, ample emotional intelligence, and conspicuously good taste”, while JazzWeekly describes her as “fun and quirky, hip and a hoot, wispy and romantic.”  In 2021, she brought her music to top jazz clubs in London and Istanbul, and this spring is touring the album across Canada.

She is joined by Miles Black on piano, Ken Lister on bass, Buff Allen on drums and other special guests.
