Known for highly original and entertaining arrangements of classic songs and standards, KATHLEEN GORMANis a dynamic performer/composer whose music has received world-wide airplay and fans. Soulful, bluesy, poignant, uplifting, not to be missed!

“Toronto-based Kathleen Gorman wears several cloaks. She is a composer, singer, pianist, and arranger.

“’Brand New Day’ – and indeed Kathleen Gorman’s music in general – is the precise point where jazz meets smart pop. The songs are every bit as good as the playing, and that’s saying a lot, when one takes a look at the talented players on board.”
Mark Rheaume, CBC Radio, Toronto
