TO Live presents “New Orleans’ next big thing”—Quiana Lynell—at the George Weston Recital Hall on February 15, 2020. Part of TO Live’s “Jazz at the George” series, all tickets are $35 and are available online at meridianartscentre.com, by calling 416-366-7723 or 1-800-708-6754, or in person at select TO Live box offices.

Winner of the prestigious Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition Award, the prize afforded her the opportunity to record an album for Concord Jazz. The result, 2019’s A Little Love, produced by the renowned Brian Michel Bacchus, is testament to what a rare, mesmerizing artist can achieve on her auspicious debut. A feast of soul, gospel, R&B, groove, and jazz, A Little Love blooms with songs about searching, trying times, buoyant love, deep reflection, and social action. A Little Love is a heady collection of A-list material associated with Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone, Chaka Khan, Duke Ellington, Ray Charles and New Orleans soul queen Irma Thomas.

A five-time Grammy winner Terence Blanchard’s take on hearing Quiana Lynell for the first time was “a serious vocal discovery.” He added, “Quiana Lynell was already a vocal presence. When I first heard her sing, my initial thought was ‘Who are you, where have you been, and why am I just hearing you now?’”
