Amanda Tosoff is a Toronto-based jazz pianist, composer, and educator. She has received various honours, including the Montréal Jazz Festival Grand Prix de Jazz, the Toronto Arts Foundation Emerging Jazz Artist Award, and a 2022 JUNO nomination for her album Earth Voices. With her latest release, Amanda continues to pursue the creative and stylistic leap she began on her previous album Words, blending jazz, pop, and art-song, and drawing on poetry with a deep personal and emotional connection. This summer, Amanda is touring with 5 of the 16 guest artists on her album, including JUNO Award-winning vocalist Emilie-Claire Barlow, saxophonist Allison Au, bassist Jon Maharaj and drummer Morgan Childs. The band will perform music from Earth Voices, plus selections from Emilie-Claire’s repertoire, including clever arrangements of Burt Bacharach, Bob Dylan, Gershwin and more!
