So excited to announce the Call Me a Fool album launch on May 19th, 2015 at Toronto's Jazz Bistro! Featuring Mark Kieswetter, Ross Macintyre, Eric St-Laurent and Max Roach.
$10 cover, please call 416.363.5299 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve seats.
With Call Me A Fool, young Toronto jazz/pop songstress Eliza Pope arrives on the scene with an astonishingly assured (and anything but foolish) debut record. With the assistance of co-producer/arranger/pianist Mark Kieswetter (Emilie-Claire Barlow) and an A-list of Toronto players, Pope delivers a record that mixes well-chosen classics and freshly-written originals and highlights her refreshing versatility as a vocalist.
"Feeling Good" shows that Pope can nail a hearty blues song, while "Hit The Road Jack" and the autobiographical "Try" have an empowering attitude. She can also do light and breezy ("Where Will I Find Love") and warm and sentimental ("Here Comes The Sun"), and can shine equally on a tender and mellow ballad ("Little Girl Blue").The result is a record and artist highly worthy of your attention.
August 26-28, 2014
