Sparkling chanteuse Tia Brazda is making a move in a bold new direction with her new album Daydream, out this fall with North American tour dates to follow. Brazda's jazz-pop gems, retro style, and utterly distinctive voice have established her as a strong and unique presence on the jazz scene, both at home in Canada and abroad. Garnering comparisons to Billie Holiday and Amy Winehouse in the past, she stands distinguished as a powerful artist in her own right. Her new album features a who’s who of Juno-nominated players including Larnell Lewis of Snarky Puppy on drums, as well as a funky collaboration with Marc Pelli of Billboard #1 group, MAGIC!, whose song “Rude” continues to be a global phenomenon. Brazda has toured the world, performing at prestigious festivals such as the 2017 Montreux Jazz Festival, 2017 San Jose Jazz Summer Fest – where she was rated "Best of the Fest" by local press – 2016 Festival International de Jazz de Montréal (main stage), and the 2016 Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. Her last two albums 'Cabin Fever' and 'Bandshell' both debuted at #1 on the iTunes jazz chart in Canada, with Bandshell airing on over 35 stations across the U.S. while hitting #24 on the national jazz radio chart.
