about tia

Tia Brazda has established herself as a sparkling presence on the jazz scene in Canada and beyond, performing from Montreal to Paris to Amsterdam, and at such notable festivals as the Vancouver International Jazz, Toronto International Jazz and Bestival (UK). Her debut EP, Cabin Fever burst onto the scene in February 2012, hitting #1 on the iTunes Canada Jazz chart as well as receiving play on CBC Radio 1, Jazz FM 91.1 and college radio stations across Canada. Originally from Vancouver, but having honed her cutting-edge sound in the clubs of Toronto, Tia’s sassy songs and pin-up girl style have made a startling impression, paying homage to the golden era while still remaining daringly modern.

Now with her debut full-length album Bandshell, Tia comes out swinging with a more polished flair, updating her vintage vibe from flats to heels. The 10 tracks examine affairs of the heart from a rollercoaster's front car view, neatly packaged and bowed with Brazda's superb Billie Holiday-meets-Amy Winehouse-like vocals. The album also debuted at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart in Canada and was ranked #5 by Jazz FM 91 in Toronto on their list of Top 10 Canadian jazz albums of 2015. It also hit #24 on the CMJ national jazz radio chart in the U.S. after being added to over 30 stations nationwide.
