Velvety-voiced pianist Elizabeth Shepherd arrived on the international scene in 2006 when her debut album START TO MOVE was voted one of the top three jazz albums of the year by the listeners of the influential Gilles Peterson Show on BBC Radio Worldwide. Since then, the Canadian soul-jazz innovator has released three widely acclaimed records and toured extensively in North America, Europe, Japan and Latin America. She has sold out legendary clubs from Tokyo to Detroit, played festivals like Montreal and North Sea Jazz Festival, shared the stage with Victor Wooten, Branford Marsalis and Christian McBride, and opened for Jamie Cullum at the Hollywood Bowl. A three-time JUNO nominee (Canada's Grammy equivalent), Elizabeth Shepherd has received widespread praise for her hip compositions and soulful delivery. Along with Esperanza Spalding, Robert Glasper, and Jose James, she is seen as part of a wave of young jazz musicians bringing the art form to a new generation of music fans. Elizabeth's upcoming album THE SIGNAL features compelling collaborations with guitarist Lionel Loueke (Herbie Hancock). Elizabeth will be touring throughout the world in 2014 and 2015.
