Cari Burdett, a Vancouver Island-based singer-songwriter, delivers a fusion of jazz, art song, folk, and opera through her sultry mezzo vocals and theatrical performance energy. Her multilingual repertoire features a vast range of styles and genres, from 1940s French swing, to Spanish jazz, traditional Swedish folk and Italian medleys. She combines classical masterpieces with operatic arias and original songs, which are accompanied by this multi-instrumentalist’s fiery stage presence. Burdett released her first album, Magnolia, in 2015, which was nominated for Best World Album at the Western Canadian Music Awards and for which she won Vocalist of the Year in 2016 from the Vancouver Island Music Awards.
