Tia Brazda Short Info

Tia Brazda's sassy jazz-pop gems and vintage style have established her as a sparkling presence on the jazz scene at home and abroad, paying homage to the golden era while adding a modern twist. Having honed her cutting-edge sound in the clubs of Toronto, she burst onto the scene in 2012, hitting #1 on the iTunes Canada Jazz Chart as well as receiving play on BBC6, CBC Radio, Jazz FM 91.1 in Toronto and college radio stations across Canada. This debut brought her to Paris and Amsterdam as well as cities around the UK in support, in addition to performing at major festivals at home across Canada.

In 2015 Tia followed up with her debut full-length album 'Bandshell', which also debuted at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart and #3 on the Nielsen Soundscan Chart in Canada. It was also ranked the #5 best Canadian jazz release of 2015 by Jazz FM 91 in Toronto. The album also hit #24 on the CMJ national radio chart in the U.S. after being added to over 35 stations nationwide.

In support of 'Bandshell', Tia toured Canada, the U.S. and Spain in 2015 and 2016, performing at such major festivals such as the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal (main stage), Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival (front cover of festival program), TD Toronto International Jazz Festival, Jazz Sudbury Festival, All-Canadian Jazz Festival and Iboga Summer Festival (Spain). In 2016 she also released an electro-swing collection of remixes titled 'Bandshell Remixed', featuring prominent DJs from around the globe, including Wolfgang Lohr and Sound Nomaden. Tracks from this release continue to be featured on BBC Radio 6 in the UK and Rai Radio 1 in Italy and the album made the Best of 2016 list by the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on BBC Radio 6 in the UK.

In 2017 Tia performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival as well as the San Jose Jazz Summer Fest (rated "Best of the Fest") as part of her European and North American tours. A new album is scheduled for release in the spring of 2018.
