Quirky, indie, jazzy. Elements of early jazz combined with a contemporary feel and electronic elements make for a unique musical experience. Galaxie award nominee, Super creates music with nostalgic undertones, yet still compellingly new. Think Tom Waits meets Portishead meets Blossom Dearie.

Biography

Super's debut at the 2010 Vancouver International Jazz festival earned her a Galaxie Award nomination for emerging talent. She followed this up with another sold out appearance at the 2011 Jazz festival as well as sold out shows at the top jazz clubs in Vancouver and Montreal. Her performances leave fans mesmerized with her take on the not-so-standard standards and her edgy renditions of contemporary tunes like Radiohead's Karma Police bring the house down every time.

Super continues to garner accolades and was recently featured on a Women in Jazz compilation CD. She has been showcased on the airwaves on multiple CBC radio shows, Australian, UK, Italian, Dutch and other European stations and has been interviewed for a multitude of jazz publications and broadcasts. She has showcased at Canadian Music Week, performed on CTV news and her most recent recording project has received FACTOR funding and is being produced by Juno winner, Les Cooper. She has toured across Canada extensively.

It is a blend of musicianship and performance that sets her apart from her contemporaries. Hailing from Montreal, Super now calls Vancouver home and spins melodies that are rooted deeply in her experiences of these cities. Super's soulful style combines a masterful blend of jazz, latin and blues sprinkled with hints of nostalgia from the early jazz era. The result? A sound reminiscent of yesteryear yet compellingly new and original. She understands and executes the idea of "the music within".

Her first album, "One Night" is a triumph, featuring a group of Vancouver heavyweights including Budge Schachte and John Korsrud.

Super has already had the pleasure of working with legends Nancy King, Jennifer Scott and Kate Hammett-Vaughn as well as new generation jazz superstars Gretchen Parlato, Sara Gazarek and Sachal Vasandani. She has also worked with pianists Josh Rager, Jillian Lebeck and Dawn Clement, bassists Dave Watts, Andre Lachance and Nedra Wheeler as well as Ambrose Akinmusire, Bill Coon and Evan Arntzen.
