Jessica Heaven, vocals
Gavia Lertzman-Lepofsky, violin
Jake McIntyre-Paul, bass

“Jessica Heaven has a gorgeous tuneful voice
and her effortlessly expressive jazz style
belies her youth.
An artist to keep your eye and ear on.”

- Kate Hammett-Vaughan,
Juno-nominated Jazz Vocalist

“Meet a fresh new trio whose spare,
edgy instrumentation
and playful vocals create a jazz reduction sauce,
simmering the musical ingredients
to concentrate the flavors." 

- Kitty King, bassist for Little Mountain Trio
and The Kitsilano Kat Kickers

Hailing from Salmon Arm and Vancouver, Ptriodactyl is an electrifying trio of voice, violin, and bass, that travels 465 km to rehearse, record, and perform together. This youthful, innovative group is constantly challenging themselves in both their originals and their interpretations of jazz standards by refusing to transcribe to the traditional musical roles of their instruments. Looking to groups like Triology, The Oscar Peterson Trio, and The Jennifer Scott Trio for their inspiration, this band is a unique fusion of groove and space. With their effervescent synergy, musical interplay, and sense of humour, Ptriodactyl captivates audiences and is not one to miss.
