Jocelyn Barth is one of Canada’s exciting emerging vocalists. As a jazz singer, Jocelyn is known for her emotional expressiveness and sensitivity. She delivers a lyric with intention, depth and authenticity while maintaining the playfulness of phrasing that comes from her instinctively instrumentalist-like approach to singing. While happy to keep it simple, she loves to stretch out into an explorative, improvisational adventure with her bandmates.

Jocelyn’s innate musicality and versatility have put her in increasing demand in a variety of settings as a featured artist and a session musician. She recorded on Canadian music icon Jane Siberry’s albums Ulysses’ Purse and Angels Bend Closer and performed with Siberry at the launch of Ulysses’ Purse in Toronto in 2016. Jocelyn has worked with experimental vocalist and conductor Christine Duncan on multiple projects, including the soundtrack for the award-winning feature film The Witch. Additionally, with Duncan’s improvising mass choir The Element Choir, she performed with Inuk throatsinging dynamo Tanya Tagaq at Massey HallNathan Phillips Square and The Great Hall and recorded on Tagaq’s Juno-nominated album Retribution.
