Ori Dagan

Vocalist Ori Dagan was voted "Best Male Vocalist" in the 2013 NOW Magazine Reader's Poll and won a CBC Radio “Canada’s Next Top Crooner” competition. Born in Israel and raised in Toronto, he initially trained as a classical pianist, dabbling in creative writing and musical theatre before discovering jazz in his late teens. He dropped out of the University of Toronto’s English program to pursue a musical education, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from York University with a focus on jazz vocals and classical voice; he went on to study jazz performance, songwriting and improvisation at the prestigious jazz program at Humber College and attended the Vermont Jazz Centre’s intensive summer workshop to study with Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton.
On his 2012 release “Less Than Three” the vocalist explores new territory, re-imagining material by Elton John, Madonna, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Lady Gaga, along with originals, standards, and selections in his native tongue of Hebrew stirred into the mix.
