Velvety-voiced pianist Elizabeth Shepherd arrived on the international scene in 2006 when her debut album Start To Move was voted one of the top jazz albums of the year by listeners of the influential Gilles Peterson Show on BBC Radio Worldwide. Since then, the Montreal-based soul-jazz innovator has established herself as one of the most alluring and imaginative artists on the scene. A classical pianist who came to jazz through her love of old-school hip hop, it’s perhaps no surprise that this globetrotting talent has developed such a distinct and unique voice.
Elizabeth is a six-time JUNO nominee and two-time Polaris Prize nominee and has released seven widely acclaimed records. She’s toured extensively in North America, Europe, Japan, and Mexico, sharing the stage with Christian McBride, Victor Wooten, Spanky Wilson, and Jamie Cullum.
The result of three years of remote collaboration with different artists, Elizabeth’s latest album, Three Things, is a celebration of hope in the face of darkness, grace in the face of the unknown, and the tenacity of the creative forces that carry us through it all. On tour to promote Three Things, she’ll be joined by Rémi-Jean LeBlanc (bass), Michael Occhipinti (guitar), Chris Gestrin (synthesizers), and Colin Kingsmore (drums).
