Description

Canadian jazz icon, multi-award-winning singer-songwriter, and host of CBC’s Saturday Night Jazz Laila Biali announces the launch of her hotly anticipated new album on March 27, 2020, Out of Dust, and album release concert — as part of a national tour — on May 2, 2020 at 7:30pm at Pyatt Hall, VSO School of Music (843 Seymour Street). Be among the first to hear Biali’s deeply intimate album live — the first since her 2019 JUNO Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year — alongside local guest artists James Danderfer and Jodi Proznick with students from the VSO School of Music.

Rooted in Biali’s own personal struggle through doubt, heartache, and loss, Out of Dust is an uplifting tribute to the hope and resilience found within life’s journey. A genre-bending chanteuse who “masterfully mixes jazz and pop, bringing virtuosity and unpredictability to songs” (Washington Post), the soulful new album, co-produced with her husband Ben Wittman, features multiple collaborators including Grammy Award winners Lisa Fischer and Larnell Lewis.

About Laila Biali

Multi award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter, pianist and CBC Music national radio host Laila Biali has headlined festivals and venues spanning five continents from New York City's Carnegie Hall to Beijing's National Centre for the Performing Arts, and supported international icon Sting. In 2019, Laila’s eponymous release won her a JUNO (Canada's GRAMMY) for "Vocal Jazz Album of the Year.” The year before that, she was awarded top prize at the Canadian Songwriting Competition in the Jazz category. Laila was also the youngest-ever double winner at Canada’s National Jazz Awards when she was named "SOCAN Composer of the Year" and "Keyboardist of the Year.” She received her first JUNO nomination for Tracing Light (2011), and a spot on DownBeat Magazine's "Best Albums of the Year" for Live in Concert (2013). In September of 2017, Laila was brought on as the host for CBC Music's national radio show, Saturday Night Jazz, a weekly show broadcast to listeners across Canada. While Laila continues to earn high honours in the Jazz world, her signature sound transcends genre as she "masterfully mixes jazz and pop, bringing virtuosity and unpredictability to songs that are concise and catchy" (Washington Post). Laila's highly anticipated album, Out of Dust, which features multiple GRAMMY nominees and winners including Lisa Fisher, Alan Ferber, John Ellis, and Larnell Lewis, will release March 27, 2020.
