Laila Biali

Laila Biali has toured with Chris Botti, Paula Cole, Suzanne Vega and Sting. She has headlined festivals and venues spanning five continents including Carnegie Hall. Her accolades include a 2019 JUNO win for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year, first prize in the 2018 Canadian Songwriting Competition (Jazz), and SOCAN Composer of the Year and Keyboardist of the Year at Canada’s National Jazz Awards. In September of 2017, Laila was brought on as the host for CBC Music’s national radio show, Saturday Night Jazz. While she continues to earn high honours in the Jazz world, Laila’s unique genre-bending sound is what sets her apart, as she “masterfully mixes jazz and pop, bringing virtuosity and unpredictability to songs that are concise and catchy.” (Washington Post)
