Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday throughout the Fall and Winter, the Home Smith Bar at the Old Mill Toronto showcases some of the most important instrumentalists and leading vocalists on today’s jazz scene performing for your pleasure in the cozy intimacy of one of Toronto’s best loved lounges.
With a strong influence in jazz and blues, rising star singer/songwriter MELISSA LAUREN has an original style that melds old school sounds with modern flare. Her debut album, The Other Side, showcasing the jazz and swing sounds that have helped shape her distinctive musical style, was released to critical acclaim in 2012.
Recently wrapping her latest recording project, Your Mess, she will release what will be her sophomore album this Fall, promising a slightly edgier and mature sound. The first single Lauren released in Canada, “Send Them Away,” was named ‘Song of the Week’ on CBC Radio in Toronto, and been nominated for a Toronto Independent Music Award.
The singer’s love for swing and jazz music began when she started performing with the Toronto All-Star Big Band, and continued singing with them until 2004. She has toured Western and parts of Eastern Canada several times, and the upcoming 2015 tour will take her across Canada and Europe.
This evening’s all-star MELISSA LAUREN TRIO features jazz masters MELISSA LAUREN (vocals), NATHAN HILTZ on guitar, and TYLER EMOND on bass, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of The Home Smith Bar.
