Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and pianist Laila Biali melds "traditional jazz with contemporary pop so effortlessly that neither style seems out of place on the same record (Spinner Magazine). Sought after for tours with GRAMMY winning artists Chris Botti, Paula Cole, Suzanne Vega and Sting, Laila has also headlined festivals and venues spanning five continents including Carnegie Hall. In 2016, Laila was a featured performer at the first-ever global TEDSummit. Her studio recording, Tracing Light, received a JUNO nomination for Best Vocal Jazz Album of the Year, and her follow-up, Live in Concert, was named one of the Best Albums of 2013 by DownBeat Magazine. In September of 2017, Laila became the host of CBC Radios national show, Saturday Night Jazz. Her new self-titled album releases January 26, 2018.
She is an exciting and unique talent, and I admire her greatly.
Matt Aronoff (bass), Ben Wittman (drums) will join Laila.
