Calgary & Montréal vocalist Caity Gyorgy - Haines Junction

Calgary & Montréal vocalist Caity Gyorgy - Haines Junction

“... her pristine vocals have a breathy clarity, precision and dynamic range to rival Ella (Fitzgerald) – and that isn’t a comparison any halfway respectable jazz critic makes lightly.”
~ Dave Doyle, The Syncopated Times

Bio

It’s clear that she doesn’t know, so for the love of bebop and swing please don’t tell Caity Gyorgy that laurels can be rested on! Her debut took home Vocal Jazz Album of the Year at the 2022 JUNOs, and she’s already followed up with a new album…and another JUNO win in 2023. She’s lent her warm voice and splendid phrasing to work with Christine Jensen, Jocelyn Gould, and Postmodern Jukebox, and won the 2021 John Lennon Songwriting Contest (jazz category) for her Great American Songbook-informed tune “Secret Safe”.

CAITY GYORGY (pronounced George) is 2 time JUNO award winning Canadian vocalist who is known for singing bebop and swing music. She has performed at popular clubs and jazz festivals across Canada, Mexico, Japan and the USA and has worked and recorded with incredible musicians including Christine Jensen, Pat LaBarbera, Jocelyn Gould, Ira Coleman, Joe LaBarbera, Allison Au, and Bryn Roberts, to name a few.

In addition to being a performer, Caity is an avid writer and composes songs in the style of the Great American Songbook. Her compositions have been sung by other vocalists around the world, and have won multiple awards including the Grand Prize in the jazz category of the 2021 John Lennon Songwriting Contest for her song “Secret Safe”. She is also a sought after clinician and for the second year in a row is currently on faculty as a vocal jazz instructor at the Yukon Summer Music Camp in Whitehorse, Yukon and the 2023 Interprovincial Music Camp in McKellar, Ontario.

She has released several albums of original and standard music. On July 9th, 2021 she released “Now Pronouncing”, an EP of original music arranged for large ensemble on Brooklyn based label La Reserve. This project won the JUNO for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year at the 2022 JUNO Awards. In 2023 she once again received the JUNO Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year for her debut full length LP “Featuring” which was released on November 4th, 2022. Her newly minted album “You’re Alike, You Two”, a collection of Jerome Kern songs performed with pianist Mark Limacher was just released July 21st!

After graduating from the music program at Humber college, Caity received her Masters of Music in jazz performance at McGill University under the tutelage of Christine Jensen.

MARK LIMACHER is a composer, improviser, arranger, and genre-crossing pianist currently based in Calgary, Canada. He is a graduate of New School University in New York City, and has studied privately with composers Linda Catlin Smith (Toronto) and Laurence Crane (London, UK). In 2013 he served as apprentice to composer Bunita Marcus in Brooklyn, NY.

His compositions focus on small gestures and contemplative textures, centering around works for solo instruments and small ensembles. In 2022 he was invited to be an Artist in Residence for the Festival of the Sound’s Music Scores 2022, featured by the National Arts Centre as part of their Music Alive program. His arrangements and orchestrations have been heard in collaboration with vocalists Ellen Doty, vocalist & playwright Allison Lynch, Kensington Sinfonia, Theater Calgary, and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.

As a pianist and keyboard player he has performed with a wide range of artists including Juno-winning vocalist Caity Gyorgy, Grammy-winning saxophonist Ted Nash, and techno artist Corinthian, with whom he recorded an album in 2018, Disappearance Exhibitions. He appears regularly with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and with Theater Calgary, variously, as keyboardist, associate music director, and music director.

Other areas of interest include Italian opera, music of the early 20th Century, Psychoanalysis, and contemporary philosophy. In 2016 he co-founded the NCRA award winning radio program Unprocessed with violinist and long-time collaborator, Laura Reid. He currently hosts the podcast Things that Seemed Important at the Time.
