Canadian Jazz Icon Laila Biali Announces New Album & Vancouver Album Release Concert

Pyatt Hall, VSO School of Music 843 Seymour Street02 May '20 @ 7:30 PM - 10:30 PM

    Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter, celebrated pianist, and host of CBC's Saturday Night Jazz, Laila Biali announces the launch of her deeply intimate new album from Chronograph Records, Out of Dust on March 27, 2020, and album release concert on May 2, 2020 at 7:30pm at Pyatt Hall, VSO School of Music (843 Seymour Street) — as part of a national tour. Biali's first album since her 2019 Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year, Out of Dust is an uplifting tribute to the hope and resilience found within life's journey.

    Biali has experienced no shortage of hardship in the last few years. In quick succession, the singer lost a dear friend to cancer, mourned a family member's suicide, and was diagnosed with two autoimmune disorders that threatened to upend her career. Biali channelled her heartache, despair, and healing into her songwriting — resulting in her moving new album Out of Dust. Featuring 10 original tracks and a rousing cover of the anthemic Take Me to the Alley, the album is a soulful and eclectic blend of up-tempo melodies and poetic ballads that Biali hopes will help spread a little more love in the world.

    A native Vancouverite, Biali will debut Out of Dust in a celebratory homecoming performance at the VSO School of Music's Pyatt Hall. The album release concert will feature some of Vancouver's jazz luminaries as special guest artists, including two-time Juno nominated bassist Jodi Proznick and Leo award-winning composer and clarinetist James Danderfer. The jazz stars will be backed by a string quartet comprised of VSO School of Music students, hand-picked to accompany them.
