Laila Biali Returns to SubCulture: Arts Underground March 9th.
(Published: February 21, 2014)
Award-winning Canadian Jazz pianist, vocalist and songwriter Laila Biali ends her first US tour at SubCulture: Arts Undergound in New York City.
Biali, whom Sting calls “an exciting and unique talent,” is known for taking the best of pop, rock, classical and soul, and informing it with her knowledge of jazz, as she weaves together exquisite musical arrangements. Her album, Live in Concert, was recently named one of the “Best Albums of 2013” by Downbeat Magazine. Biali’s tour, supported by The Canada Council for the Arts, will feature Adam Thomas on bass and Fred Kennedy on drums.
Biali has also become known for crowd-sourcing her set lists, inviting fans to submit their song requests – without restrictions on style or category – then selecting several to debut at upcoming shows. Playfully dubbed “REQUESTOMATIC,” this fan-driven initiative was introduced a year ago and has expanded Biali’s concert repertoire to include songs by Adele, David Bowie, Prince, Randy Newman and many more.
