Stacie McGregor

Canadian jazz composer/pianist Stacie McGregor began studying piano at the age of six and as a twelve year old, received early recognition as a accomplished composer when she was awarded third place in “The Yamaha National Song Writing Contest”. A consistently expressive player she received a Juno award in 1999 for her performance on the “Best World Music” recording (Omnisource by Madagascar Slim).

Her debut CD “Straight Up” received international recognition charting in more than 20 countries. The song titled “Top Cat” from the same recording was selected as a finalist in the Jazz Category of the 2004 USA Songwriting Competition.

Her latest release titled “Swift” was a unique collaboration funded by The Ontario Art’s Council. A project that she co-led with the late great saxophonist and educator Billy Robinson that featured compositions from their respective songbooks.

They were joined on the recording with Curtis Lundy on bass and Billy Hart on drums.

In 2007 she was invited to perform at the Montreal Jazz Festival receiving her 2nd nomination for the General Motors Grand Jazz Award and the Galaxie Rising Star Award of the CBC.

Currently she can be heard performing with “2008 Juno Award” winner Brandi Disterheft’s band.
