BIO


Angela Turone is a Toronto-born and locally-based vocalist and pianist who is quickly establishing herself on the Canadian jazz scene. Angela's voice has been described by WholeNote Magazine as "warm [and] pure", and Jazz Journal calls it a "fresh, youthful sound". Her distinct style has been inspired by her love for classic vocal jazz and Brazilian bossa nova and samba genres.

A graduate of the University of Toronto Jazz Performance Program, Angela has performed at Toronto's top jazz venues and in some of Ontario's best-known jazz festivals including the TD Toronto Jazz Festival, the Kensington Market Jazz Festival and the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival. Angela has also been a part of the Niagara Jazz Festival's Twilight Jazz Series and the TD Toronto Jazz Festival's "Generations in Jazz" concert. Angela has performed alongside Juno Award-winning saxophonist Mike Murley, singing on Murley's original song "Minas Mist" and recorded on his 2013 album "Reflections" with the University of Toronto Jazz Orchestra. In 2014, she was awarded the Jazz.FM91 Mary Alice Stuart Scholarship.

Angela's debut album "Sounds of Brazil" [2020] is a collaboration with Canadian guitarist Chris Platt that features their "fresh and faithful" arrangements of Brazilian bossa nova and samba classics that have greatly influenced their careers and artistry. "Sounds of Brazil" charted 73rd on the Jazzweek charts. It features a stellar line-up of some of Canada's finest jazz musicians, including Chase Sanborn, Pat Collins, Andrew Downing, Robin Claxton, John Nicholson and Helio Cunha and is produced by Gordon Sheard.

Angela is also a passionate music educator teaching privately in studio and leading JAMME, an award-winning 12-voice a cappella jazz choir at the Etobicoke School of the Arts in Toronto.

Turone beautifully handles all the piano playing and singing – much of the latter in Portuguese – and her warm, pure vocals really suit the style.

Cathy Riches
The WholeNote

Angela Turone's voice is as pleasant as windchimes playing on a soft, June breeze.

Dee Dee McNeil
Musical Memoirs

She is a singer of gentle subtlety who is fully aware of both music and words – whether singing in Portuguese or in English.
