‘A Place For Me’ Margot Roi’s latest recording is an eclectic collection of songs that approach the subject of love from every possible perspective to affirm a place in your heart. Margot arranged all compositions to reflect the diverse musical nature of her performing experience. To give the album the fresh, textured sound of today’s jazz Margot recorded with some of Canada’s top musicians. Margot is proud of the performances and contributions that Mike Downes, Kelly Jefferson, Reg Schwager, Mark Kelso, Ted Warren, William Carn, Ted Quinlan, John Johnson, Brain O’Kane, Alan Hetherington, Will Jarvis and Anthony Panacci made to the album. Included in the collection are two original songs never published before. 'A Place For Me' the title track was penned by Margot.

Raised in the small town of Dundas, Ontario, Margot began performing in school musicals, with church groups and on local Cable TV telethons. Many talent contests were won and she had the distinctive pleasure of performing in an all-girl Mariachi band when her family lived in Mexico. Throughout her childhood Margot shared in her family’s diverse musical experiences: opera, folk, jazz & musical theatre. Aesthetically, this infusion of extensive musical genres has led Margot to an inclusionist style with an unfettered exuberant approach.

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!
