Caity Gyorgy is a Calgary born vocalist who specializes in singing jazz, blues, and contemporary music. She is influenced by the voices of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Esperanza Spalding, Cecile McLorin Salvant, and many more.
Caity has studied with many prominent musicians including Christine Duncan, Al Kay, Lisa Martinelli, Mike Downes, and Pat Labarbera to name a few.
She has performed at many events including the City of Calgary’s Mayors’ Lunch for Arts Champions, Heritage Park’s “Music in the Plaza”, the Calgary Stampede Talent Search, the Calgary International Blues Festival, The JazzYYC Summer Festival, the Toronto Jazz Festival, and the Toronto Undergraduate Jazz Festival.
Caity creates hip arrangements of jazz standards to keep them modern and fresh, while still swinging like they would of half a decade ago. Her arrangements often feature her own vocal improvisation which sets her apart from other jazz singers these days. She is a thrill to watch!
