Singer-songwriter Emm Gryner has been writing and recording for decades. Now, she’s made her first-ever jazz album.

Gryner’s records have brought her Juno Award nominations and wide acclaim both here in Canada and abroad. She has released more than a dozen albums, worked with a large number of collaborators and, in the early 2000s, was even a member of David Bowie’s band, touring and recording with the late legend.

Her new jazz album Just for You is dedicated to her father. As Gryner explains, he picked out the standards for her to sing and even joined her in the studio for the first time to see her in her element.

She joined us for a conversation about that relationship with her father and the making of this new record.
