Hailed by the Montreal Jazz Festival as "one of the greatest female singers in the history of Canadian jazz," Cheryl Fisher is also a composer and lyricist who has recorded six CDs under her own name.  A Global Music award winner for her latest disc, "Quietly There," and voted Best New Jazz Artist by the Alberta Recording Industry Association, she holds a Bachelors Degree in Education (with distinction) from the University of Calgary and a Masters Degree in Jazz Vocal Performance from the University of Miami, where she also taught.  In addition to an international performing schedule Cheryl is a respected Jazz Educator and has been on the dais of several North American jazz scholarship committees.  Her live performances and recordings continue to receive glowing reviews for their originality, emotional depth and outstanding technical excellence.  Her recordings feature the cream of the Canadian Jazz scene including such luminaries as Tommy Banks, P.J. Perry,  Terry Clarke, Neil Swainson and Reg Schwager to name a few.  Her previous CD, "Moments Like This", pairs her with two genuine jazz legends:  Five-time Grammy Award nominee Ira Sullivan and the Canadian Juno award-winning pianist Oliver Jones.  

Inducted into the South Florida Jazz Hall of Fame in 2012 and voted “Best Jazz Artist of 2003” by the readers of New Times Fort Lauderdale- Palm Beach, Eric Allison has been a full-time working professional musician for over 30 years, playing alto and tenor saxophone, flute and clarinet.   Also a composer and arranger, he has recorded three CDs under his own name, two of which were national releases in the US produced by the legendary Bob Weinstock, longtime owner of Prestige Records.  He holds Bachelor and Masters degrees in music from Northwestern University and University of Miami, where he has taught Jazz History.  As a leading performer in the top jazz clubs and concert venues in South Florida, Eric has worked with a virtual litany of jazz greats both past and present, including Zoot Sims, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Ira Sullivan, Paquito d’Rivera, Richie Cole, and Scott Hamilton.  He regularly toured Japan and Korea with veteran pianist Eddie Higgins’ band, has performed in concert with Michael Feinstein, the Florida Philharmonic with Peter Nero, as soloist with the New Gene Krupa Orchestra, and was the Music Director of the Gold Coast Jazz Society Band from 2006 to 2012.
