Caity Gyorgy

Caity Gyorgy is a Toronto and Montreal based vocalist who is known for singing bebop and swing music. Being called one of JazzFM91’s 8 Canadian Women in Jazz You Need to Know, Caity performs regularly at both public and private events across Canada.

Some of her most notable performances include the Toronto Jazz Festival, the Calgary Jazz Festival, the TU Jazz Festival, the Brampton World of Jazz Festival, backup for Natalie MacMaster, and the Calgary Stampede Talent Search (where she became the 2019 Grand Champion.) Caity has also worked with many luminaries in the Canadian jazz scene including Allison Au, Pat LaBarbera, Jocelyn Gould, and Pat Collins.

Caity plays most frequently with her group the “Caity Gyorgy Quartet”. With this group, she creates hip arrangements of jazz standards to keep them modern and fresh, while still swinging.

Her arrangements and compositions often feature her own vocal improvisation which sets her apart from other jazz singers. She has released one EP and several singles and is set to release her debut album “No Bounds”, that features guitarist Jocelyn Gould, on January 22nd, 2021. Her recorded music has been played on radio station across the globe and she has been featured on multiple Spotify Editorial Playlists including “Vocal Jazz”, “Jazz X-Press”, “Chilled Jazz”, and “Jazz Tranquilo”.
