2018 CBC Searchlight Finalist JORDANA TALSKY fuses alternative, pop, and jazz into her own innovative “indie pop jazz” sound, weaving together quirky textures, intricate harmonies, and vocal percussion with pointedly direct lyrics.
Accolades include a Toronto Independent Music Award nomination (2015, best vocal jazz), finalist placements in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition (2018 and 2014), Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition, and Julian Award for Emerging Canadian Artists.

Talsky has commanded marquee stages across North America, among them the Iris Jazz Stage series (Amherst, NY), TD Toronto Jazz Festival, Winnipeg Jazz Festival, and Spaghettini Lounge (Seal Beach, CA). In June 2018 she toured across Canada with notable festival performances and in September 2018 debuted in Europe with performances in Sweden and Germany including
official showcases at “Live at Heart” Sweden, one of Scandinavia’s largest music festivals.

She has enjoyed widespread airplay and critical praise for “Neither of Either” and for “Standard Deviation”, her 2013 debut, a smooth-jazz collection of originals and eclectic covers.

“…one of those voices who can sell albums by just singing the phone book…”  (LA Music Critic)

“…an eclectic mix of quirky, wholly original, and undeniably catchy tracks that will stun both in terms of enjoyability and talent…”  (Canadian Beats)
