Victoria Jazz Society

Carsen Gray

Saturday, June 22 | Cameron Bandshell, Beacon Hill Park

Born of Haida Gwaii Indigenous and mixed descent, award-winning singer-songwriter Carsen Gray commutes the peace of her surroundings into a soulful sound, spiked with R&B energy, pop universality, and a twist of local spirit. Turning heads, Gray’s 2017 self-titled debut earned “Best New Artist” at SiriusXM’s Indigenous Music Awards, while 2018’s Wanna See You with JUNO Award-nominated DJ Shub received “Best Radio Single.” Along the way, she performed on the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) and at JUNOFest. During 2020, her single “Sah ‘Laana” and its intimate accompanying music video caught the attention of Nettwerk Music Group, the record label to which she signed. After making waves across Canada, she introduced herself to the world on her 2022 debut EP Each Moment. Now, she brings music from her latest 2023 album Misadventures, and you can experience her TD JazzFest debut!


Free performances at Beacon Hill Park happen 12pm – 6pm. Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23.
