hope you can make it !

Elizabeth Shepherd (Toronto, Do Right!)

Her multiple industry accolades have landed her 2 Juno nominations, tours in Europe and across and North America, 2 separate, sold-out week-long stints in Japan, and most recently, a show at the legendary Hollywood Bowl with Jamie Cullum & Count Basie Orchestra. Fans and critics have drawn comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Diana Krall and Rickie Lee Jones. And what these names all share is both an accessibility and a distinctness that quality people cant quite pin down.

Press quotes:

Debut album ‘Start To Move’ voted the Top 3 Jazz Albums of the Year" -Gilles Peterson show on BBC Radio 1 UK in 2006.

“Not Unlike Joni Mitchell, Shepherd uses the constructs of jazz along with elements of the folk and soul traditions to build a contemporary sound all her own†-Now Magazine Toronto. Jan 2008

“Shepherd and her crew can be slick and sophisticated without feeling the need to show off – the truest mark of a musician’s confidence†-Globe & Mail, May 6, 2008

The Jessica Stuart Few (Toronto)

Fit to groove through the bounds of all parameters, Jessica Stuart embodies the essence of pop and jazz, creating a dynamic sound, merging outstanding creativity with traditional roots. With a national tour behind her and a lifetime of musical inspiration, Jessica’s unique cultural experiences and coast-to-coast response marks her influence as a Canadian artist with a sound of her own. Cohesive and full of melodic prowess, The Jessica Stuart Few continues to tap the senses of obscurity and tradition while referencing the roots of jazz with a soulful and funky twist.

Katie Du Temple and the Stay Toughs

Katie DuTemple blends jazz with electronica and pop influences. Her compositions are always exciting, eclectic and brings a fresh perspective to Toronto's music scene. Her band "The Stay Toughs" believes that music is a supreme form of expression and with this in mind, Katie’s singing and compositional styles are always saturated with emotion. She composes and sings with a combination of heart and mind that make a delicate balance of intellect and passion in her music and her band mates are right there with her.


Born in England with a Jamaican background, this accomplished Canadian singer/songwriter's voice can be compared to greats like Nina Simone and Marsha Griffiths. Iniffa has toured extensively with international acts including; the Jimmy Cliff World Tour, the Bob Marley World Tour with Ziggy Marley and Toots Hibbert, and the Euro-Disney Hakuna Matata Lion King World Tour where she gained international fame for her unique sound as well as her engaging stage personality. After a self-imposed break from performing, Iniffa has returned to Toronto from Jamaica. She is now working on her own material that has jazz, reggae & soul undertones.
