Join Angela, Miles Black, Ken Lister and Buff Allen to celebrate the release of Angela’s second album, "Love for Connoisseurs”, featuring the Victoria-based 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. Angela is touring the album across Canada to Vancouver, Lion’s Bay, Nanaimo, Port Alberni, Banff, Edmonton, Calgary, Ottawa and Toronto.
She is joined by Vancouver-based Miles Black (piano), Nanaimo-based Ken Lister (bass), and Bowen Island-based Buff Allen (drums).
