Caity Gyorgy is a Calgary born vocalist based in Toronto who specializes in singing jazz, bebop and swing music. Being called one of JazzFM91’s 8 Canadian Women in Jazz You Need to Know, Caity performs regularly at both public and private events.
Some of her most notable performances include the Toronto Jazz Festival, the Calgary Jazz Festival, the TU Jazz Festival, the Brampton World of Jazz Festival, backup for Natalie MacMaster, and the Calgary Stampede Talent Search (where she became the 2019 Grand Champion.) Caity has also worked with many luminaries in the Canadian jazz scene including Allison Au, George Koller, Trevor Giancola, Jocelyn Gould, and Pat Collins. She has studied with Mike Downes, Pat LaBarbara, Lisa Martinelli, John MacLeod and more.
In addition to performing, Caity runs an instagram account entitled "@Liftaday" where she has gained global recognition from her transcription videos that are viewed daily by thousands of people.
She has released an album and several singles and she is scheduled to release two full-length albums in 2020. One of the albums features her 10tet with all original compositions, and the other is recorded with her quartet featuring Jocelyn Gould on guitar.
Caity runs 2 groups — the Caity Gyorgy Quartet and 10tet respectively — that create hip arrangements of jazz standards to keep them modern and fresh, while still swinging. Caity also composes original music in the style of the Great American Songbook and standard jazz repertoire. Her arrangements and compositions often feature her own vocal improvisation which sets her apart from other jazz singers. She is a thrill to watch!
