A Port Theatre Discovery Series Presentation
Orith – (O’wreath) – Lady-O
Vocalist, Bassist, Composer
Lady-O writes songs that promote a sense of well being with themes that touch upon the inner journey, our shared humanity, and sometimes just fruit. Joined by The Omen, Lady-O and the band are going to cook one fat groovy pocket while fusing jazz, world music, pop, and R&B.
Multi-instrumentalist, singer songwriter, arranger and band leader, Lady O is a charismatic and natural entertainer who loves to bring people together. While completing her music degree from Capilano University, Orith performed weekly with her jazz band The Grand Trine. For 15 years they were a part of a lot of cool things like, being the face of the CTV’s 2010 Vancouver Jazz Festival ad campaign, playing exclusive concerts for the athletes at the Olympics, and were nominated twice for the CBC’s Galaxie Rising Star award.
Lady-O & The Omen is the band Orith has always wanted. Being able to have her original music come to life with some of the finest musicians around is a dream come true! The band is also having a ton of fun reinterpreting cherry picked standards and folk melodies.
