Sivan Arbel Embarks on Canadian Tour

The critically acclaimed New York vocalist will visit Montreal, Ottawa and Calgary.

Vocalist and composer Sivan Arbel is proud to announce her summer summer tour in Canada to celebrate the release of her debut album ‘Broken Lines’. Sivan will begin with two dates in Montreal at Barfly and the Composers Jazz Festival, travel to Ottawa for appearances at Mercury Lounge, The Rainbow and Vineyards Wine Bar and conclude in Calgary at Jerusalem Rd. Shuk. Immediately following her tour, Sivan will attend the prestigious Banff International Workshop in Jazz & Creative Music. 

Joining Sivan will be pianist Roland Racz, trumpeter Ed Lister, and Ottawa based musicians Alex Moxon (guitar), Alex Bilodeau (bass), and Michel Delage (drums).

Born and raised in Israel, Sivan Arbel studied in Dublin, Ireland before moving to New York City, where she currently resides. Accompanied by a collective of international musicians, Sivan’s multicultural journey shines through over the course of “Broken Lines”. “The sound of this album is inspired by all of the people I have encountered and the experiences I have had along my journey,” says Sivan, “…”Broken Lines” personifies the journey of an organic musician.”

Six of the seven tracks are original compositions and each one tells a unique and compelling story with each lyric carefully crafted and bolstered by the musical current below it. “Every note I sing and lyric I write has enormous meaning behind it,” she says. The deeply personal nature of the album is evident on “Analysis”, which highlights its emotional lyrics over dreamy arpeggios to cacophony, on the sweeping dedication to her father, “For Aba”, and on the driving “Open My Tube of Art”. On the Miles Davis-Bill Evans opus “Blue and Green” her creativity as an improviser and arranger is on full display.
