Born in British Columbia but calling Toronto home, Cara Matthew is one of Canada’s most soulful and talented jazz and blues singers. Called “Canada’s next international jazz star” by Canadian Music magazine, Matthew has long demonstrated a unique talent for transforming pop singles into jazz and blues numbers.
A year after the release of her debut album, Make You Feel My Love in 2009, Matthew went to the drawing board and began work on her second album, Everybody Hurts. Launched on March 22nd, 2016, Matthew’s new record went straight to number one on the Canadian iTunes jazz chart. Including covers of songs from artists as diverse as Katy Perry and the Bee Gees, her sophomore album features a first for Matthew: a song she co-wrote with her producer Greg Kavanagh entitled “I Never Knew.”
Joining Cara on stage tonight are Adrean Farrugia (piano) and Brendan Davis (upright bass).
