Her music pays homage to the golden era while adding a modern twist. Her first EP, Cabin Fever (2012), hit #1 on the iTunes Canada Jazz Chart and received airplay on BBC and CBC Radio, Jazz FM 91.1 and college radio stations across Canada. Her 2015 record, Bandshell, also topped the iTunes Jazz Chart and was named the fifth-best Canadian jazz release of 2015 by Jazz FM, while breaking into the top-30 on the CMJ jazz radio chart in the United States. he album features some of Canada’s jazz greats, including Marc Rogers on bass, Chris Gale on saxophone, William Sperandei on trumpet, William Carn on trombone and Mark McLean on drums, as well as Miranda Mulholland (Great Lake Swimmers) on fiddle, and showcases Brazda’s growth as a performer and songwriter, combining a sophisticated sound while still featuring the saucy dance numbers her fans have come to expect. Meanwhile, she continues to perform around the world at major jazz festivals and venues.
