MELISSA LAUREN & NATHAN HILTZ
October 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT$15
Toronto based singer Melissa Lauren and jazz guitarist Nathan Hiltz have been performing, writing and recording together for the better part of ten years. With similar and complimentary styles, the musical pairing is a natural one; The music: their own brand of old school jazz, Do-wap and blues mixed with indie pop inflections and sounds. After many years of performing together in a variety of settings and bands. And recently having a baby and getting married , we are finally collaborating together in a duo format. Their soon to be released duo album, is being treated as true record: one side originals, showcasing Melissa’s folky pop dreamworld, the other, standards, in which Nathan’s virtuosic comfort in jazz and its idioms shines.
The duo have a collective thirty plus years of performance experience. Both have worked with an impressive roster of Canadian talent,and toured North America extensively. The live show is charming, and calls people from all walks of life to trust their hearts to Lauren’s frank yet soothing word puzzles, and Hiltz’ deep grounding in rich harmony and supportive groove. The touring format will include bass and drums for larger stages and festivals.
