Elizabeth ShepherdVelvety-voiced keyboardist Elizabeth Shepherd arrived on the international jazz scene in 2006 when her debut album Start To Move was voted one of the top albums of the year by the listeners of the influential Gilles Peterson Show on BBC Radio Worldwide. Since then, the Montreal-based soul-jazz innovator has established herself as one of the most alluring and imaginative artists on the scene today.

Elizabeth has been hailed as “a jazz virtuoso blessed with a pop sensibility”, praised by critics worldwide for her arrestingly original writing and soulful delivery. Alongside Esperanza Spalding and Robert Glasper, she is among the new wave of jazz-influenced musicians bringing the art form to a younger generation of music fans.

The six-time JUNO nominee and two-time Polaris-Prize nominee has released seven widely acclaimed records, featuring collaborations with the likes of guitarist Lionel Loueke, bassist Jasper Hoiby, and UK producer Nostalgia 77. She has toured extensively in North America, Europe, Japan and Mexico, sharing the stage with such diverse acts as Christian MacBride, Branford Marsalis, Spankie Wilson, Victor Wooten, the Quantic Soul Orchestra, Bonobo, The Five Corners Quintet, and Jamie Cullum.

About the project: For her 8th album, Elizabeth Shepherd has created a collection of 10 songs, bringing together soulful jazz and synth-based electronica. Penned during lockdown, "Three Things" is an ode to life, joy and resilience, and features her 6-piece band. It will be coming out in 2023 (Canada) / 2024 (EU / Japan).
