Lori Cullen

Toronto-based pop and jazz vocalist Lori Cullen has a pure and uniquely beautiful voice that recalls the likes of Joni Mitchell and Jane Siberry.  Lori has been acclaimed by jazz great Kurt Elling as one of his favourite new singers.  Fittingly, her latest album, titled Sexsmith Swinghammer Songs (2016, True North), is a collaboration with Ron Sexsmith, who penned the lyrics, and fellow singer-songwriter Kurt Swinghammer, who wrote the music and handled the arrangements.  The 12-song recording has been described as a "fresh expression of jazz-infused chamber-pop," though it draws inspiration from Burt Bacharach, Antonio Carlos Jobim and others. "To have two of my favourite people who also happen to be two of my favourite songwriters write an album of material for ME to sing is beyond exciting," beamed Cullen.
