2024 JAZZ ALBUM OF THE YEAR (SOLO) | Gentiane MG | | The JUNO Awards

For Gentiane MG, music is a powerful tool for expression that has allowed her to develop her own potent, imaginative and sensitive language.

Alongside her long-time collaborators, bassist Levi Dover and drummer Louis-Vincent Hamel, she has created a rich universe which earned her numerous accolades, including the Radio-Canada Révélation Jazz Award (2018), the OPUS Award for Discovery of the Year (2020) and the François-Marcaurelle de la GMMQ Award. Her latest release “Walls Made of Glass” was nominated in the category “Jazz album of the year” at the ADISQ 2023 and was received with critical acclaim

“Her latest release showcases the full extent of her rare talent. Gentiane MG confirms her stature as a major artist. There is nothing glib, nothing faked, simply confident creativity.” (Keith Black, Winnipeg Free Press, 2022).”

“…her writing is phenomenally brilliant. She is a standout talent. Michaud-Gagnon’s music flows masterfully with poise and grace. She commands the piano with elegance, subtlety, and a refined quiet knowing.” (Kerilie McDowall, All About Jazz).
Unquestionably a “favorite” album.” (Dominique Cotro, Paris-Move).

The trio has been invited to perform in Canada, Mexico, Germany, Netherlands and France in International Jazz Festivals, jazz clubs and concert halls.
