Trudel said she is very excited to be touring with the band.

“It’s an amazing band,” Trudel said. “The musicians are passionate and generous.”

The jazz quartet includes Ingrid Jensen (trumpet), Rémi-Jean Leblanc (bass) and Rich Irwin (drums).

Trudel has toured in Canada, the United States, France, Spain, Germany and Mexico.
