November 29, 7:00 PM, Artesian on 13th
Elizabeth Shepherd returns to Artesian on November 29th! She'll be touring her latest album, Signal, called 'her best yet'.
“The Signal is bold, personal and completely lucid audio art from Elizabeth Shepherd. It wouldn’t be overstating it at all to assert that this is the most important vocal jazz record that will be released all year. Just don’t expect jazz — or anything else — in the strictest sense from an album that only adheres to Shepherd’s mysterious and multi-faceted muse.”
Elizabeth has been hailed as “a jazz virtuoso blessed with a pop sensibility”, praised by critics worldwide for her arrestingly original writing and soulful delivery. Along with artists like Esperanza Spalding, Robert Glasper, and Jose James she is seen as part of a wave of jazz musicians bringing the art form to a new generation of music fans.
The three-time JUNO nominee (Canada’s Grammy equivalent) has released four widely acclaimed records and toured extensively in North America, Europe, Japan and Mexico. She has sold out legendary clubs from Tokyo to Detroit, played major festivals like Montreal and North Sea Jazz Festivals, shared the stage with Victor Wooten, Branford Marsalis and Christian McBride, and opened for Jamie Cullum at The Hollywood Bowl. Elizabeth is also the only jazz vocalist to ever have been long listed for the Polaris Prize – Canada’s most prestigious music prize.
On her upcoming fifth album The Signal Shepherd teams up with guitar genius and Herbie Hancock band member Lionel Loueke as she continues to create jazz for a new generation.
We're thrilled to have Elizabeth Shepherd returning to Artesian on Saturday, November 29th. Tickets are $20 in Advance or $25 at the Door.
