Tia Brazda

June 3 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Tia Brazda
One of Canada’s most recognizable voices in jazz, Tia Brazda’s jazz-pop gems and retro style have established her as a unique presence on the jazz scene, both at home and abroad. Not only a singer, but a songwriter as well, Brazda has performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival, main stage at the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal, as well as toured many times across North America and Europe, from intimate supper clubs to large outdoor festivals.  Her music has been described as a “hip pastiche” and a “walking catalogue of 20th century jazz styles”. Her first single “Cabin Fever” broke through in 2012 and she followed that up with the 2015 full-length Bandshell, named as one of the best of the decade in the Italian press and one of the best of the year by Jazz FM 91 in Toronto.  Her 2018 release ‘Daydream’ saw her exploring new grooves such as bossa nova, soul and tango.  Her new album WHEN I GET LOW out May 27th, finds her delving into the past, interpreting well-known classics from the Great American Songbook and making them her own.
