Musician

Kristen Lee Sergeant

Born:

Kristen Lee Sergeant is a jazz vocalist and composer of effervescent energy, musical intensity and dramatic flair. DownBeat Magazine has given both her albums the distinction of being an Editor’s Pick, citing how she “crafts moments of engaging drama, whether she’s seductively sliding into a note with a near-whisper, delivering a breathy revelation or belting out a lyric with full-throated muscularity.” She commits to telling a story in her music and performance style, while sparking spontaneous sonic conversation with her fellow musicians. Such commitment, and its results, captivate her audiences, whether in live performance or listening to her recordings. Kristen’s current release, Smolder, is a story of fire — love ignited, ablaze and extinguished

Aimee-Jo Benoit

I am a vocalist, collaborator and thinker based in Calgary, Alberta. Over the past decade, I have become well- known for my uncommon tone and unique approach to the jazz genre. As a solo artist and a sought after back-up singer, I work in multiple genres; pop, rock, indie, and folk and have been a part of various projects including Woodpigeon, Aaron Booth, Spreepark, The Summerlad, and Hermitess. Growing up singing in church choirs, I have a deep appreciation for harmony, major chords and the unity of voices in choral settings while finding joy in melancholy as well. I continue to be a student of my practice as well, currently working with renowned tenor and vocal coach Leon Leontaridis (Canadian Tenors, Destino)

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
