BIOGRAPHY

Sammy Jackson is an emerging Canadian singer-songwriter recognized for her distinct sound, fusing elements of Jazz, R&B and Pop. Growing up, she regularly found opportunities to perform and develop as a musician, which led her to pursue a Bachelor of Music in Performance specializing in Jazz Voice from the University of Toronto. During her education, she studied with accomplished vocalists including Alex Samaras, Christine Duncan and Sienna Dahlen.

 

As a rising presence in Toronto and Niagara, Sammy has performed at notable venues and events such as Jazz.FM91’s One-Stop Jazz Safari, The Rex Hotel Jazz and Blues Bar, Luminato, and TIFF Bell Lightbox. In addition to performing and leading her own band, Sammy has shared the stage with renowned musicians such as Barbra Lica, Robi Botos, Rich Brown, and Larnell Lewis.

 

Sammy Jackson’s latest project, entitled With You, was graciously funded by the Ontario Arts Council and FACTOR. With You is a 5-track EP featuring original compositions in collaboration with vocalist and songwriter Jacqueline Teh. This project showcases music that is honest and relatable while exploring themes of vulnerability, broken relationships, and love. Sammy’s distinct approach to songwriting captivates a diverse audience through her blend of various elements of Jazz, R&B, and Pop. Additionally, With You features some of Canada’s most outstanding musicians, including Tom Fleming (guitar), Chris Pruden (piano), Mark Godfrey (bass) and Ian Wright (drums).
