Musician

Tina Hartt

Tina Hartt is a singer, composer and musician native to Montreal. She has enjoyed a diverse singing career spanning all over Canada: rock bands and church choirs in Montreal, Big Bands and jazz ensembles in Toronto, and acting/singing/dancing in Nova Scotia and PEI.

In 2014 she moved out west to Calgary, and decided to focus on jazz. Going back to her french roots, she has dusted off some old french chansons (ie: Brel, Aznavour and Piaf) and given them new life by combining the romance of the french with Latin rhythms and jazz harmonies. These elements are the foundation for her original material, and give a freshness to her interpretations of jazz standards. Tina’s instrumental choices of violin, clarinet, accordion and congas along with piano, bass and drums create a unique sound that compliment both the French paroles or English lyrics and her arrangements make excellent use of these instrumental colours, especially in her original compositions.
