Karen Myatt

Canada

Karen Myatt is a Canadian vocalist whose soulful sound is a musical mélange of jazz, blues, rock, worldbeat and more. After training at the Randolph Academy in Toronto and graduating from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, Myatt performed across North and South America. Career highlights include headlining the Halifax Jazz Festival, performing with Symphony Nova Scotia and appearing as a feature guest on CBC Radio’s East Coast Music Hour. Her first full-length album – Enchanté (2014) – was recorded in her hometown of Halifax, and features traditional standards backed by a jazz trio. Her sophomore album - Femoir (2021) - celebrates the feminine spirit and features a collection of original compositions and contemporary standards as well as an all-star 7-piece ensemble. Femoir was released in November 2021 at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Renowned jazz vocalist Cassandra Wilson says of Femoir; "Absolutely stunning! Mesmerizing. The arrangement compliments her lush and soulful contralto.” Arts publication ArtsEast says; "Karen Myatt is far and away, the best new artist to emerge from Atlantic Canada in recent memory."
