Cat Toren is an award winning pianist, improviser and composer and holds a Masters of Music Composition from the State University of New York. Described as “vibrant, earthy and spiritual” (UK Vibe), Cat “uses bold atmospheric abstraction and fluid melodies to mix deep human warmth with creative fire” (Coastal Jazz and Blues).
Cat Toren’s HUMAN KIND released their self-titled album to coincide with the 2017 presidential election and donated proceeds to the ACLU. The album has sold in over seven countries, receiving critically acclaimed reviews such as “A powerful recording” – Bandcamp Daily (The Best New Jazz on Bandcamp) and “Cat Toren should be a household name. Incredible music for 2017” – UK Vibe. The group has toured in both the United States and Western Canada. The music is influenced by the free-form, socially conscious jazz of the late ’60s as well as today’s resurgent civil rights movement. The International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation asked Cat to be an artist speaker at the University of British Columbia’s Colloquium 2017; her lecture was titled Cat Toren’s HUMAN KIND: Music for Empathic Activism. Accolades for Cat Toren include a JUNO Award and Western Canadian Music Award.
