    A unique and powerful songstress on the Canadian jazz scene, Alex Pangman has an unerring take on classic-era jazz, making music of the past captivatingly present through her infectious charm and sincerity. Whilst clearly influenced by artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, she has a voice unequivocally her own. Respectfully called “Canada’s sweetheart of swing”, and now on Justin Time Records, she is also a double lung transplant recipient. With the help of her group The Alleycats, who also inhabit the 1930s style, Pangman has performed everywhere from main stages at Montreal Jazz Festival, Massey Hall in Toronto, and Rochester International Festival, to Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival. In 2016, Pangman was nominated for a vocal jazz JUNO award.  Her sidemen include John Macleod (JUNO nominee, Boss Brass) on cornet, Peter Hill piano, Glenn Anderson Drums, and Chris Banks on bass. http://www.alexpangman.com/
