Cat Bernardi makes her holiday wishes crystal clear with her new single and video Let’s Get Cozy — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“Lots of people are unable to connect with those outside of their households and unable to partake in the typical activities they would at this time of year,” says the smooth jazz vocalist. Let’s Get Cozy “celebrates the simple beauty of being at home and making a special event out of spending time with people in your household and taking a break in the solace of the home.”
Bernardi’s first holiday single is also the title track to a holiday season EP of the same name. She studied jazz vocal music at York University and Humber College, where she had the opportunity to train under accomplished musicians such as Jane Fair, Maria Farinha, Sacha Williamson and Michael Donovan. Through Toronto Jazz Workshops, she has also had the opportunity to train with jazz legend Barry Harris. It was not long before she began composing her own music, arranging her favourite standards and playing with several ensembles around the city including the Toronto Jazz Chorus, York University Jazz Choir, and her own group, The Cat Bernardi Quartet.
