ABOUT THE ARTISTS|
Tia Brazda @ 7:30pm
Tia Brazda’s debut EP, “Cabin Fever” burst into the scene in February 2012, hitting #1 on the iTunes Canada Jazz Chart, as well as receiving play on CBC Radio 1, Jazz 91.1 and college radio stations across Canada. Having honed her cutting-edge sound in the clubs of Toronto, Tia’s sassy songs and pin-up girl style have made a startling impression. Her music pays homage to the Golden Era, while still remaining daringly modern.
Declan O’ Donovan @ 8:15pm
Declan O’Donovan is a singer, songwriter and pianist from Whitehorse, Yukon. His music is influenced by the sounds of Americana, blues, folk and roots, finding inspiration from artists such as Bob Dylan and Randy Newman. Informed by adept piano playing, an evocative voice, and skillful songwriting, O’Donovan’s music is at times dark, consistently poignant, and often underscored with twists of wicked humour.

Amy McConnell @ 9:00pm
Amy McConnell has been performing from the age of nine months when she appeared in her first television commercial. Amy continued her childhood career as one of the principals on the TfO TV series “Téléfrançais” and also performed in various professional musical theatrical productions. Amy has never been able to resist the siren song of… song and she splits her time between her film production and music careers. “Stealing Genius” is her first album and the reception from the Canadian jazz community has been outstanding. Despite her anglophone name, Amy comes from a francophone background, is fluently bilingual and frequently performs in French. Known for her beautiful voice, impeccable intonation and emotional approach, Amy’s style encompasses jazz, pop and musical theatre.
