Roedde House Jazz Concert Series presents: An Early Valentine's Celebration with Jaclyn Guillou
About Jaclyn Guillou:
In 2009 Jaclyn was honored to be the recipient of a CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award from her very first performance at a jazz festival, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and has been setting good stride since then. She has toured throughout Europe, Canada and the United States in some of the most recognized jazz clubs, festivals and cities with shows at Yoshi's San Francisco, Birdland Jazz Club, Rataplan in Belgium, L'Inoui in Luxembourg, Yardbird Suite, Cory Weeds' Cellar Jazz Club, The Rex Jazz Club, Hermann's Jazz Club, Vernon Jazz Club, Beat Niq Jazz Club, and Uptown Kitchener-Waterloo Jazz Festival. She has had the pleasure of studying with some of the world's best jazz singers which include American vocal luminaries Nancy King, Jay Clayton and Sheila Jordan. Jaclyn started her career at the age of 10 performing in musicals as a triple threat performer, being equally talented as a dancer, singer and actress. She had a successful professional career of 15 years performing musicals worldwide. Her former training as an award winning tap dancer and classically trained opera singer gave her the undeniable skills and stage presence that she brings to her current music career as a jazz vocalist.
In 2011 Jaclyn released her first album, To The City, a collection of original songs and unusual arrangements of jazz standards. Jaclyn was invited to perform a tribute concert to Dinah Washington which was recorded at CBC Studios for radio and tv, airing globally this summer. In January, 2014 she released a new album The Lover's Walk which was recorded in Belgium with her European Quartet. She is presently working on new music, inspired by John Hollenbeck, Norma Winstone, and Theo Bleckmann, and has written a collection of songs with her Canadian Quintet that will be produced into an album by one of Canada's extraordinary talents, Brad Turner.
