Alex Pangman

Although Alex Pangman grew up a couple of generations late to have sung with Teddy Wilson, the vibrant young vocalist is proud to be known as Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing. With pipes aplenty, Pangman possesses the requisite taste, talent and the historical knowledge of an avid record collector to breathe new life into the music of the classic jazz era. A superb song stylist with growing compositional chops, Pangman has built a loyal fanbase amongst jazz listeners and dancers through her critically acclaimed work with her stacked Alleycats. Alex’s life-long obsession with jazz began in her teens when she discovered Louis Armstrong, Jack Teagarden and The Boswell Sisters. She has recorded with legendary Bucky Pizzzarelli, and recently opened for Willie Nelson at Massey Hall. Her most recent album was recorded in New Orleans for Justin Time Records.
