Jordana Talsky

Toronto, Canada

Jordana Talsky is a singer-songwriter-looper who performs an innovative style of “live looping” as an acapella artist who integrates looping into ensemble performance. She began her career as a jazz vocalist, and later as she leaned into songwriting, her original sound took on a quirky, melding quality that fuses pop, acapella, jazz, and contemporary influences into her own crossover style. Her music explores themes of self-identity and relationships, material that she weaves in along reimagined interpretations of eclectic pop and jazz standards. She experiments with finding new approaches to vocal performance and seeks to open audiences' minds to something out of the box.

Her song RUN from her sophomore album “Neither of Either” was a finalist judge’s pick in the 2018 CBC Searchlight Contest. Other accolades include a Toronto Independent Music Award nomination (best vocal jazz), finalist placements in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition (2018 and 2014), Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition and Julian Award for Emerging Canadian Artists.

She has commanded marquee stages across North America, among them the Iris Jazz Stage series (Amherst, NY), TD Toronto Jazz Festival, Winnipeg Jazz Festival and Spaghettini Lounge (Seal Beach, CA). In 2018 she had notable festival and showcase appearances including her European debut at Live at Heart (Sweden). She has enjoyed widespread airplay for Neither of Either and for Standard Deviation, her 2013 debut, a pop-jazz collection of originals and diverse covers.
