Album Description

After carrying out a multiyear pilgrimage of experimentation in jazz and pop music, Montreal singer-songwriter Sonia Johnson has emerged from out of the shadows and into the light with Chrysalis, her rst English language album. On this new recording, Johnson is accompanied by a fabulous ensemble of 11 musicians and vocalists - including singer Elie Haroun - and is supported by an incredible cast of collaborators including Stanley Péan, Stephen Johnston, Mark Alan Haynes, Alex Lefaivre, and Normand Deveault. Chrysalis is an audacious musical ight, poetic, soulful, and delicately woven with silken sounds. Sonia Johnson rst gained national recognition with her acclaimed album Le Carré de nos amours, which won the 2012 Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. Her next project, Triades, featuring singers Annie Poulain and Charles Biddle Jr., was nominated for a 2013 ADISQ and a 2014 Juno award. Le cœur à l’endroit, a collaborative album with renowned pianist and arranger Marianne Trudel, further solidi ed her reputation as one of Canada’s premiere vocalists. A graduate from the University of Montreal's Masters program, Johnson is a highly sought after collaborator and has worked with a wide variety of artists including Laila Biali, Félix Stüssi & Les Malcommodes, Steven Taetz, Vincent Réhel, Rodrigo Simoes and Orchestre National de Jazz de Montréal. Chrysalis will be released worldwide on Friday, November 15th, 2019.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
