    GILLIAN MARGOT’S “BLACK BUTTERFLY” PROJECT COMES TO JAZZ BISTRO in TORONTO on APRIL 7th, 2016, 8:30PM  ------------ SINGER GILLIAN MARGOT REINVENTS A DIVERSE MIX OF JAZZ, SOUL AND POP SONGS with an ALL-STAR CAST OF AMERICAN & CANADIAN JAZZ TALENT: multi- GRAMMY-nominated pianist GEOFFREY KEEZER, bass virtuoso RICH BROWN, and drummer DANIEL BARNES   ------------ “Gillian has a love for song and the storytelling aspect of musical performance. The tone and sincerity of her voice, her remarkable presence and knowledge, use of phrasing, and ability to communicate with an audience make her relatable and personable. She has a penchant for hard work and a tendency to win over an audience." -- JEREMY PELT, Producer, Black Butterfly   ------------ "Jazz of the highest caliber, the kind that has garnered her a following in her hometown of Toronto and residencies in places like Singapore, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. There’s no mistaking it in Margot’s delivery: soulful and robust–a voice you might say was built like a brick house–but also sensuous, carefully sculpted to the contours of each song; her precise articulation; her rhythms, simultaneously poised and playful....Black Butterfly is Margot’s icebreaker for the American jazz audience” -- from the liner notes by MICHAEL J. WEST  ------------ "Gillian Margot has made a fantastic, genre-bending new album featuring some of jazz’s hottest current players. The music spans the spectrum from Jazz to R&B and Gillian nails all of it. ….she’s got something to say, not just another cookie-cutter female jazz singer.” -- multi-GRAMMY Nominee GEOFFREY KEEZER   ------------ "With a full, oaky voice, and a keen perception of harmony, it is no wonder that Gillian Margot stands out from today’s top vocalists. The ability to beautifully depict a song’s melody with a vast alto range is what allows her to lead a band as a dynamic vocalist, but also enables her to function as an in-demand sidewoman.” -- MARCUS STRICKLAND  ------------ Canadian-born singer GILLIAN MARGOT is just as much at home with jazz standards as she is with R&B, blues and the sophisticated side of pop music. She's earned an avid global following from Asia to her native Canada and in her new home all over the USA. On her debut album as a leader, Black Butterfly, released in 2015 by NYC label HiPNOTIC Records, Margot leads some of New York's most in-demand jazz talent including guitarist Freddie Bryant, saxophonist/clarinetist Roxy Coss, pianist/organist Anthony Wonsey, bassist Richie Goods, drummer Kendrick Scott, and producer, trumpeter Jeremy Pelt. Margot's choice of material spans many decades and just as many styles, a showcase for her depth of knowledge and ability to channel minute shifts in emotion while working seamlessly across musical boundaries.  Margot’s disarmingly wide vocal range and style eschews jazz singer clichés for refreshing delivery. Black Butterfly (Hipnotic 2015) is an artfully crafted set and speaks to the singer's passion for musical diversity while showcasing her multifaceted talents.
