jillian lebeck, vocalist/pianist

…a prodigious talent…
The Westender Newspaper

A native Vancouverite, pianist/vocalist/composer Jillian Lebeck is one of the most dynamic and exciting new voices to emerge on the West Coast jazz scene in recent years.  Her influences are broad and diverse as she blends mainstream jazz with the sounds of the ECM, popular music and classical elements.

Jillian Lebeck’s quintet was featured in CBC Radio’s Studio One Jazz Series during the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival and the group has also been showcased on CBC’s “Hot Air” and “After Hours”.  Her group also performed at the Victoria, Montreal and Ottawa jazz festivals and played five nights at one of Toronto’s main jazz venues, the Top O’ the Senator.

Whether performing as a soloist or with her swinging jazz trio, Jillian plays originals and jazz standards plus some fresh takes on pop classics.  She has performed at many of Vancouver’s finest venues including the Vancouver East Cultural Centre, O’Doul’s Restaurant, Terminal City Club and Brock House, in addition to, many major hotels.

"Inevitably Jillian Lebeck will be compared to Diana Krall but this sophisticated jazz singer has perhaps more of a true jazz soul to her. "

"There's also some Norah Jones in Lebeck's brandy-and-fireplace singing…"
