The timbre of her appealing voice has an essence of Billie Holiday and the words she sings are almost conversational that speak of someone who has really lived. http://lauramarks.ca

Julie McGregor is a soulful jazz vocalist and the host of the Singer’s Jazz Series who draws her audiences in with her storytelling style. Julie has been collaborating with jazz pianist, Norm Amadio for the past five years performing and songwriting. Julie was nominated for Best Jazz for the New Music Awards for 2011."

The Toronto Star “Reliability got him work. Unrivaled musicality gave him stature and clout. Jazz stars arriving in town — Carmen McRae, Miles Davis, Joe Williams or Jimmy Rushing — wanted him. Or even needed him, as the veteran American singer Maxine Sullivan once told me.” Peter Goddard (freelance journalist).

and Duncan Hopkins on bass

Duncan Hopkins has been likened to the world’s best : “St.Catharines has given the jazz world one important composer…Kenny Wheeler. It may have another one … in the person of Duncan Hopkins”.
