Toronto-based French/American Jazz singer Laura Anglade is making a name for herself on the Canadian jazz scene and beyond. Originally from a small village in the South of France and raised in Connecticut, Laura’s singing is reminiscent of many of the great vocal stylists of the 20th century: Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Anita O’Day, Shirley Horn, and Blossom Dearie. Her mentors were tenor Matthew Surapine and pianist David Lahm, son of well renowned Jazz lyricist Dorothy Fields. She has made several appearances on the New York, Toronto, Québec City and Montreal scenes and has performed at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal over the past three years. Her debut album "I've Got Just About Everything", which came out in June 2019 on Justin Time Records, has been met with praise by critics and fans alike. A new second duo record will be released in May 2022 featuring guitarist Sam Kirmayer and special guest Benjamin Rosenblum on accordion. Laura has appeared on Global News, Jazz Today, Whole Note Magazine, and has been recognized by Radio Canada’s Ici Musique as one of the top 5 female jazz musicians to watch out for. Laura is the main vocal coach for Humber Community Music, maintaining a thriving teaching practice in the Toronto area and internationally through online video chat. Her teaching methodology is informed by her deep experience as a vocalist and artist, working with students to help them build the musical skill set and confidence they need to perform.
