Having an exquisite voice, a disarmingly wide rangeand a style that is deeply rooted in the tradition ofthe great jazz vocalists, Gillian Margot possesses a gift of storytelling and stunning lyrical delivery. Anative of Toronto, Canada, Margot studied under a generation of jazz legends including Oscar Peterson, Freddy Cole, Carol Welsman, and Norman Simmons. Equally at home in the musical worlds ofjazz, R&B, chamber, and pop, she has been invited to perform in major venues worldwide with a long list of top-tier talent, including rock icon Sting, famed soprano Kathleen Battle, jazz stars Jeremy Pelt and Chris Botti, and GRAMMY®-awarded artists Robert Glasper and Geoffrey Keezer. Additionally, her voice can be heard in commercials, feature films, and television programs including Jane Goodall’s Wild Chimpanzees (IMAX 2002), New Year (Doublesee 2010), Lethal Weapon (FOX2016), The Young and The Restless (2016-2019), and One Good Reason (Alone.Calm2020). Margot’s new album entitled Power Flower, builds on her unique and emotive interpretations of American Standards. A deeply soothing homage to her influences in the Jazz, Pop, and Funk of the 70s and 80s, Margot spent two and a half years building the work; selecting seasoned titans Geoffrey Keezer, Billy Kilson, Seamus Blake, Ingrid Jensen, and Munyungo Jackson. Included in the liner notes is the phrase ‘All vocals recorded without use of any pitch correction technology,’ which sums up the attention she has paid to Power Flower. The song selection reveals the same care; three rare covers from Stevie Wonder, Wayne Shorter, and Joe Sample are balanced with three originals and a wonderful arrangement of the traditional song “Black Is The Color (Of MyTrue Love’s Hair).”Power Flower released in Japan in December 2019 (Coreport), globally in October 2020 (Ropeadope Records) and on vinyl in March 2021.
