cara matthew trio
This event happens on Jan 21, 2017.
Born in British Columbia but calling Toronto home, Cara Matthew is one of Canada’s most soulful and talented jazz and blues singers. Called “Canada’s next international jazz star” by Canadian Music magazine, Matthew has long demonstrated a unique talent for transforming pop singles into jazz and blues numbers.
A year after the release of her debut album, Make You Feel My Love in 2009, Matthew went to the drawing board and began work on her second album, Everybody Hurts. Launched on March 22nd, 2016, Matthew’s new record went straight to number one on the Canadian iTunes jazz chart. Including covers of songs from artists as diverse as Katy Perry and the Bee Gees, her sophomore album features a first for Matthew: a song she co-wrote with her producer Greg Kavanagh entitled “Never Knew”.
Matthew ended 2016 with a successful Dare To Dream tour, promoting the release of her new record. Recent performances have also included Casino Rama in Orillia, Ontario, the ‘Jazz in the Plaza’ series at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts and the Jazz Bistro in Toronto.
Joining Cara on stage tonight is Jeff McLeod on piano and Ben Bishop on guitar.
