Colleen Savage

I am a music performer and a program administrator with a background in arts, education and co-operatives. I’ve been active as a jazz singer and educator on the Vancouver music scene for over 30 years. I have toured across Canada and into the US to perform at many major jazz festivals, I present a regular schedule of voice workshops, I direct a community choir and I recently released my second CD under my own name. I believe jazz is a saving grace within our North American culture. My aim is to further develop my ability to create and deliver programs which support healthy and creative community living, specifically singing good music and singing it well.

“smoky and sultry” - Offbeat Magazine, New Orleans

“an outstanding performance on Time After Time” - Bobby Hales, Upbeat Magazine

“Individually, there were several standouts. Colleen Savage is a natural gospel singer with a powerhouse voice. Either leading the ensemble or belting out a solo number (“Merry Christmas, Baby”), she made it clear that sit next to her Christmas tree and you’ll get scorched.” - Mark Andrews, Vancouver Sun

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.
