Singer Lindsay Kupser presents an evening of contemporary vocal jazz. She and her fantastic band will share some of her originals at this recital as well as music by Herbie Hancock, Fred Hersch, Keith Jarrett, Joni Mitchell, John Mayer, and Beyonce.
A Canadian vocalist and composer from Calgary, Canada, Kupser is a performance major and a "contemporary jazz" singer. (But what does that even mean anymore?)
While jazz is a huge part of Kupser's musical identity and she has been influenced profoundly by artists like Anita O'Day, Ella Fitzgerald, John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery, and Chet Baker, in the past several months she has departed from singing traditional jazz and standards, and has rediscovered her love for great pop songs and wonderfully listenable music.
