Bio

Laura Anglade is a young, Montreal-based jazz vocalist currently making a name for herself on the Canadian jazz scene and beyond. Originally from 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 stems from traditional jazz roots, and some of her inspirations include Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Anita O’Day, Shirley Horn and Blossom Dearie. Her story-telling interpretations of The Great American Songbook and melodic approach to improvisation portray a soul beyond her years. She performs regularly at local jazz clubs, including Upstairs Jazz Bar & Grill and Dièse Onze. She has performed in the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival, and the Merrickville Jazz Festival, and has made several appearances on the New York, Québec City and Toronto jazz scenes and did a week-long tour Southern Ontario to promote her quintet’s debut album release. The album, "I've Got Just About Everything", which came out in June 2019 on Justin Time Records, has been met with praise by critics and fans alike. Since the release, Laura has appeared on Global News, Jazz Today, Whole Note Magazine, and has been recognized by Radio Canada’s Ici Musique as one of the top 5 female jazz musicians to watch out for.
