Holiday Shows in Ottawa, Winter Jazzfest NYC + 2020 Tour!

Holiday Jazz in Ottawa!

I am super excited to share news of a once-in-a-lifetime experience awaiting me in Ottawa: December 10 & 11, I will join the Central Band of the Canadian Armed Forces for two holiday concerts at the Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe! Captain John Fullerton will lead the charge, and listeners can expect an exciting variety of holiday fare – two very special nights to fill your holiday spirit!

Winter Jazzfest NYC Debut!

Winter Jazzfest is an annual event in New York City that features some of the best talent in the world. I’m thrilled to have my debut with WJF as part of an evening Saturday, Jan 11 at SubCulture featuring Becca Stevens, Kat Edmonson, and other female powerhouse artists. And that lineup is part of a larger “Manhattan marathon” that includes a huge range of talent like the multi-GRAMMY winning Robert Glasper! For my set, I’ll be joined by Ben Wittman (the hubs), Ike Sturm and special guest Mike “Maz” Maher of Snarky Puppy acclaim. For more info and the full list of artists, visit the Winter Jazzfest website.

APAP 2020 in NYC!

I’ll be back at the APAP Conference this January in NYC with three performances – the Winter Jazzfest show listed above, plus an official showcase spot at the Hilton Midtown Sunday, Jan 12 at 11:30 am, followed by a full set at Rockwood Music Hall’s Stage 3 at 8:30 pm. Last year, our Rockwood show sold out, so if you’d like to join us in that wonderful intimate space, I would recommend booking your tickets in advance.
