Jordana Talsky is a singer, songwriter and vocal looper who fuses multi-genre influences into her own sound. Her ethos is to incorporate digital means into live performance in an organic way, and with the loop machine, she accompanies herself by voice, creating a choir on the spot with no pre-recorded parts. In her shows, Jordana weaves unique interpretations of covers with original songs. Her show exemplifies innovation from a female perspective, both as a one-woman looper and as a songwriter who fuses elements of jazz, soul and avant-pop into a distinctive sound. Her vocal loop song, “RUN”, was a judge’s pick for finalist in Canada's CBC Searchlight Contest. Other accolades include finalist placements in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition, Julian Award for Emerging Canadian Artists and Toronto Independent Music Awards. She has toured across Canada, Europe, and was featured as an emerging artist at Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival, on her first U.S. tour. Jordana has enjoyed widespread worldwide airplay of her earlier releases “Neither of Either”, “Standard Deviation”, and her critically-praised latest release, “Zahava”, an all-vocal looping EP of original music.
