Hilary Welch with Chris Norley

Evoking influences of early Sarah Vaughan and the powerhouse 60’s soul singers, Hilary showcases her range through the performance of beloved jazz standards and the re-imagination of popular music. The time Hilary spent studying Jazz at the University of Toronto under Canadian greats Phil Nimmons, Alex Dean and Kirk MacDonald and vocalist Heather Bambrick instilled a great respect and love for the genre. Hilary credits performance opportunities with members of the renowned New York Voices, Oscar Peterson and Peter Appleyard as major influences on her performance. Although Hilary works by day in radio broadcasting, by night her soul and spirit remain dedicated to the love of music.


\Chris Norley is a jazz guitarist, vocalist, teacher, and composer based in London, Ontario, Canada and an active member of the regional jazz scene. He performed at Ed Bickert at 80 – A Jazz Celebration in the Glenn Gould Studio among a veritable who’s who of Canadian jazz guitarists: Oliver Gannon, Jake Langley, Lorne Lofsky, David Occhipinti, Michael Occhipinti, Ted Quinlan, and Reg Schwager. The concert was recorded and broadcast on CBC Canada Live. Chris has performed in productions at London’s Grand Theatre, Drayton, Huron Country Playhouse, and Upper Canada Playhouse theatres. He is the guitarist for “5PGB”, works with vocalist Jen Thorpe, trombonist Rob Stone, pianist Charlie Rallo, and also performs a wide variety of pop music (“Bob’s Yer Funkle”), and folk as a freelance musician as well as a solo, guitar and vocal, act.\
