Elizabeth Shepherd

Montréal, Québec

A jazz virtuoso blessed with a pop sensibility, Elizabeth Shepherd has been praised around the world for her soulful music. Her 5th album “The Signal” is a conceptual record complete with arresting set design; a personal feminist manifesto of sorts, where the music is coloured by everything from hip hop beats to the West African inflections of guitar master Lionel Loueke (Angélique Kidjo), and the lyrics touch on such topics as witchcraft and war, motherhood and Monsanto. “The Signal” is the most ambitious work yet from what the Toronto Star calls “a hugely original musical mind”.
