Toronto Vocalist, Pianist to Appear at University

Jazz vocalist and pianist Elizabeth Shephard travels from her home base in Toronto to perform as part of the U of C’s Monday Night Jazz Series on January 21, 2008 at the University Theatre.

With her latest release Start To Move, Elizabeth Shepherd has gained a Canadian Music Week Indie Award for Jazz Artist of the Year (2007), and a Juno nomination for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year (2007).

Elizabeth Shepherd strives to push the boundaries of what is considered conventional jazz to create a sound all her own. Raised by ministers of the Salvation Army, an early exposure to the sounds of the Army Band mixed with her love for house, disco, classical, and hip hop music, helped to lay the foundations of a soulful musician. Having trained extensively in conservatories from Alberta to France, and completing a music degree from McGill University, Shepherd has emerged onto the Toronto jazz scene where she has already established herself as someone to be watched.
