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.
