Three-time Maple Blues Award nominee, Jenie Thai is a songwriter/pianist with an old-school soul, boogie-woogie style, and a voice that spans more than three octaves. Inspired by America’s great songwriters, she blends her love of classic R&B and Americana with a contemporary edge in tough but tender ballads and fiery house-rockers. Prior to the pandemic, Jenie was constantly on the road with 270 + dates a year across Canada, pockets of the US, and Mexico. Recent accomplishments include receiving standing ovations on stages such as Massey Hall, Mariposa Folk Festival, and the New York Jazz Forum Arts Festival. Furthermore, she spent the latter half of 2019 touring as a supporting act for Downchild Blues Band as they celebrated their 50 years as a band.
The Jenie Thai Quartet will perform as part of the TD Toronto Jazz Festival Summer Concert Series, broadcast live from the Long & McQuade Performance Hall at JAZZ.FM91.
