Andrea Superstein Trio
March 19th at 8:00 pm$40.00 – $42.50
One of the most versatile voices in music today, Andrea Superstein was dubbed as “redefining jazz“ by the Vancouver Province. Her debut performance at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival earned her a nomination for a Galaxie Rising Star award and she later shared a triple bill with Canadian female heavyweights Laila Biali and Brandi Disterheft.
Her musical stylings exemplify powerful vocals, evoking the gentle and the strong, the light and the dark, often in the same song. She lithely navigates the colours of the emotional spectrum, luring us in deeper with killer improvisational instincts and exceptional storytelling.
Her upcoming oeuvre, Oh Mother, is meticulously arranged, each song beautifully and poignantly evoking a mother‘s deep and divergent emotional experiences with a truth and sincerity that’s often lacking in today’s music. Inspired by real life stories, it’s an all encompassing work featuring some of Canada’s most innovative musicians including Jane Bunnett and Rachel Therrien.
Superstein undertook an ambitious cross–Canadian digital collaboration with the single Every Little Step. Blending jazz, downtempo electronica and Latin grooves, she manages to bring light to an otherwise dark year for musicians.
Her last release, Worlds Apart produced by jazz luminary Elizabeth Shepherd, showed her true talents as vocalist, composer and arranger bringing her fresh, modern ideas to the forefront. Her sophomore record What Goes On was produced by Juno winner Les Cooper (Jill Barber.The Good Lovelies) and released on the esteemed Cellar Live imprint.
She has graced multiple official Spotify playlists, notably #4 on Vocal Jazz, just ahead of Norah Jones, received a 5–star review in BBC Music Magazine, spins on BBC Radio2 and an explosive release in Japan as well as impressive charting on Earshot.
