Coral Egan

Jazz, R&B, folk, pop, soul, reggae - Coral has explored them all, and it’s that eclectic approach to music that has shaped the sounds found on both My Favorite Distraction and its successor, Magnify, again produced by Charles Papasoff. Coral’s is a unique, hybrid style, accented by bittersweet melodies and a certain solemnity, but lifted by a healthy dose of humour and observation. Her incredibly personal songs have lyrics to match, and while firmly rooted in her jazz heritage, Coral incorporates such a wealth of sounds on her recordings that it frees her from any particular genre.

The recording features performances by some of Montréal’s finest musicians, including drummers Sam Harrison and Tony Albino, bassist Al Baculis and singer/guitarist Jay Atwill, who also co-wrote a number of the songs.

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!
