Jordana Talsky is a vocalist-songwriter who takes risks, sonically and stylistically, encompassing her diverse influences across multiple genres from jazz to pop, to alternative and ambient, to blues and soul and beyond.

 

With training in opera, musical theatre, world music and acapella, Jordana was nominated for best vocal jazz artist by the Toronto Independent Music Awards (2015) and placed in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition (finalist, 2014), Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition (semi-finalist, 2014) and Julian Award of Excellence for Emerging Canadian Artists (finalist, 2014, CJSF Radio, Simon Fraser University).

 

The release of Jordana’s new album ‘Neither of Either’ (September 2017) marks an evolution from jazz songstress to performer with a distinct sound, combining acapella and full band tracks while seamlessly weaving between intricate support harmonies, vocal percussion and quirky textures to create an innovative and compelling sound.

 

Produced by Juno award winner Justin Abedin, the multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer recognized Jordana’s innate sense of music and deep well of creativity. “She understands the value in the craft of songwriting and brings a fresh approach to her style”.

 

Pushing the boundaries of her current sound, Jordana and Justin ensured the 10 track ‘Neither of Either’ has a great vibe, ease of vocal transition, convincing lyrics and musicality that harkens to other strong female voices influential on Jordana including Fiona Apple, Dido, Feist and Alanis Morissette.

From the catchy quirky intro of “Run” to the roots infused post-rock “Around You All The Time” followed by the darkly soulful “Ways”, and the epitome of being fed up expressed in “Sick”, Side A rounds out with “Bitter Sweet Heart”, where Jordana’s mesmerizing voice takes over. “Spark”, the first track on Side B, is a reminder that sometimes, that’s all that’s needed. “Wave of Emotion” conveys the confusion of being pulled in two directions while the title track, “Neither of Either” considers that sometimes not making the choice is wise. The RnB flavoured “Don’t Know” precedes Jordana’s imaginative acapella remake of Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know” and completes the album much like it began – catchy, great vibe and shining vocals.

 

No stranger to the performance stage, Jordana has appeared in several music festivals, capturing audiences at the Iris Jazz Stage Series (Amherst, NY), the TD Toronto Jazzfest, (2015-2017), Newmarket Jazz Festival (2015, 2017), Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts (2015-2017), Jewish Music Week (2017) and supporting Canada Day in Queen’s Park (2015), Starlight Children’s Foundation Gala (2017) and Show Yer Pride Cabaret (Post-Pride Parade 2017) among others. Her California debut at Spaghettini Lounge (Seal Beach, CA) as special guest of trumpeter Willie Bradley and the Brothers Igniting a Groove, and recent performances in Florida garnered new fans and followers. Her music receives airplay on CBC, JazzFM, CFBX, CFBU, CHMA, CHRW, CHRY, CIVL, CJSF, CJUM and others.

 

Now, delving more seriously into songwriting, one thing’s for certain – no matter the repertoire, Jordana Talsky is a voice to be heard.
