Bio

Laura Anglade is a young, French-American jazz vocalist currently making a name for herself on the Canadian jazz scene and beyond. Originally from Brousse-Le-Chateau, a small village in the South of France and raised in Connecticut, she is influenced by her parents’ gypsy jazz and classical backgrounds. Her style branches out from traditional jazz roots, some of her idols including Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Anita O’Day, and Shirley Horn. Anglade's old soul becomes evident through her story-telling interpretations of The Great American Songbook and melodic approach to improvisation. She performs regularly in local jazz clubs in Montreal, and has collaborated with musicians from Toronto, Ottawa, and New York. She has participated in numerous jazz festivals, including the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal. Her quintet released its debut album, "I've Got Just About Everything" in June 2019 on Justin Time Records, which has been met with praise by critics and fans alike. Since then, Anglade has made appearances on Global News, Jazz Today, Whole Note Magazine, and recognized by Radio Canada’s Ici Musique as one of the top 5 female jazz musicians to watch out for.
