Episode 31: "Malleability, focus, and...fun!" with guest Laila Biali
IN THIS EPISODE:
Juno-nominated singer, pianist, songwriter, and radio host Laila Biali chats with us backstage at Birdland before her recent NYC show promoting her new self-titled album. Tune in to hear how a classically trained kid from Vancouver wound up gigging with Sting (and surreptitiously snapping photos during dinner at his Tuscan villa).
Laila's mother woke the kids up on Sunday mornings with the CBC's opera broadcasts, whereas Melissa tuned in at night. Fast-forward to today: you can catch Laila spinning jazz (HER WORDS) as the host of Saturday Night Jazz on CBC Music. Tune in HERE!
