About the artist...
Pianist and vocalist Brenda Earle Stokes’ career has garnered international acclaim for her work as a performer, composer and educator. A natural multitasker, Stokes has fused a passion for the piano and a love of singing into a vibrant career that crosses genres
organically. Although her playing is rooted in the history of jazz from Bill Evans to Bud Powell, she draws inspiration from Brazilian music, musical theater as well as pop artists Carole King and Elvis Costello. A native of Sarnia, Ontario, Canada, Brenda’s career has
taken her across Canada and US, and internationally performing at venues like the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, the Toronto Jazz festival, Avery Fischer Hall and the Christchurch Arts Festival in New Zealand and has performed with such artists at Wycliffe Gordon, Donny McCaslin, David Liebman, the DIVA Jazz Orchestra and Broadway legend Maurice Hines. Her unique brand of humor and honesty, mixed with her energetic piano and fluid vocal chops
make her a favorite among audiences. Her latest album “Right About Now” received international airplay and critical acclaim. She is currently working on two new projects, which will be launched in 2018.
