Described as an “old school jazz chanteuse with new school attitude,” Mallory Chipman is the rising star of Alberta jazz. Mallory blends traditional jazz and scat singing with poetic lyricism and storytelling to create a sound uniquely her own.
While the catalogue of jazz standards is near and dear to her heart, Mallory also writes her own music and is an admired arranger. Her composition “Angular Symphony” won Jazz Recording of the Year at the Edmonton Music Awards, and both of her albums, Nocturnalize, and Rags and Feathers: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen have been celebrated with sold out shows and tours across Canada and throughout Europe. She is currently working on a new EP called Aquarian set for release in 2019. Mallory’s performance career is balanced by her faculty position at MacEwan University where she teaches voice.
Ms. Chipman last appeared with the ESO in January 2018.
