simons of jazz
Brother and sister, Emmanuel and Sophie have been singing since they were toddlers. They grew up listening to the likes of Nina Simone, Whitney Houston and The Clark Sisters.
Based in Ottawa, Canada, the vibrant duo has performed in North America, South America and Europe.
Soul, Jazz and Gospel marinate to intensify their distinctive vocals. They have an exceptional ability to interpret feelings through music and a talent to make any material their own by using innovative improvisation techniques.
With 15 years of professional experience, they have performed with Josh Groban, Lyle Lovett, Dalon Collins and Dwight Grant just to name a few. Emmanuel’s classical training brought him to perform at the historic Carnegie Hall in New York City.
They are active in their community singing in churches, at weddings and private functions and contribute to charity events.
Their desire is to continue to create and deliver good inspirational music within their community and beyond.
“Life is a lot like Jazz...it's best when you improvise.”
