Jazz Cartier

Jazz Cartier songs offer complex explorations of relationships, self-determination, and the pitfalls of pursuing one’s art. SOCAN member Cartier has twice been a long-listed nominee for the Polaris Music Prize, in 2015 for Marauding in Paradise and 2016 for Hotel Paranoia. Starting out in Toronto, he quickly attracted attention, and his song “Switch” was regularly played at Toronto Raptors games. In 2016, Cartier performed at the Osheaga Festival, and his “Dead or Alive” was a short-listed nominee for the SOCAN Songwriting Prize. Hotel Paranoia won Rap Recording of the Year at the 2017 JUNO Awards, after which he signed an major-label American deal with Capitol Records.
