Sophie Milman is a charismatic young Russian-born, Israeli-raised, and Toronto-based jazz vocalist who’s well on her way to becoming an international sensation. Still in her twenties, she’s been a household name in Canada since 2004, when her debut album established her as a major artist in her adopted home country. Since then, she’s continued to take the jazz world by storm, topping the Billboard jazz and iTunes charts in Canada, the U.S., France, and Japan, winning a Juno Award, and captivating audiences worldwide.



The intimacy and immediacy of Milman’s singing reflect the dramatic experiences that shaped her early life. Born in Russia’s Ural Mountains, she left for Israel with her parents in an effort to escape the strictures and uncertainties of life under communism. Spending her formative years in Israel, Milman gravitated toward jazz and other American music forms, developing a deep affinity for such seminal artists as Ella Fitzgerald, Mahalia Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, and Louis Armstrong. When she was 16, her family emigrated again, this time to Toronto, where she quickly became a part of that city’s rich and diverse music scene. She began her musical career almost by accident, after being asked to participate in a local jazz series. Her talents quickly won her local notoriety, and it wasn’t long before she had earned a record deal with Linus Entertainment, an independent Canadian label.

Although she was barely into her twenties when it was released, Milman’s self-titled 2004 debut album became a major hit in Canada, establishing her as a rising star and an in-demand live act. Her 2007 sophomore album Make Someone Happy debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Canadian jazz chart, peaked at No. 3 on Billboard’s U.S. jazz chart, and won a Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. 2009′s Take Love Easy also debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Canadian jazz chart and reached No. 4 in the U.S. The live EP release Live at The Winter Garden Theatre and the 2008 DVD Live In Montreal further enhanced Milman’s international reputation.

Milman’s recording success has led to performances at such prestigious venues as the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center, the Montreal Jazz Festival, Toronto’s Massey Hall, and the legendary Blue Note clubs in New York and Japan. She’s also shared stages and/or collaborated with a varied array of musicians from the jazz, pop, and rock worlds, including Randy Bachman, Chris Botti, Gary Burton, Chick Corea, the Manhattan Transfer, Cesaria Evora, Jesse Cook, and the Neville Brothers.

In the Moonlight (2011), Milman’s fourth album, finds the artist creating her most sophisticated and accomplished work to date, drawing upon her sublime interpretive skills and unique personal history to deliver a deeply compelling set of jazz and pop standards that showcases the subtle emotional shadings of her singing.
