Halie Loren is an international, award-winning jazz singer/songwriter. She brings a fresh and original perspective to time-honored musical paths, singing in several languages and channeling her innate understanding of connectedness across musical boundaries to forge bonds with diverse audiences in North America, Asia, and Europe.


Her debut jazz CD, 2008's “They Oughta Write a Song,” won the International Independent Music award for best vocal jazz album of the year, and she was quickly signed in Asia by JVC/Victor Entertainment. Halie has since released six additional albums, and gone on to win many awards as both a singer and a songwriter. She is signed in North America with Canadian-based Justin Time Records. Loren’s original song “Thirsty” won the Independent Music Awards’ best jazz song of the year in 2011. Her 2012 release, “Heart First,” was honored by Japan’s Jazz Critique Magazine as the best vocal jazz album of year, and reached No. 1 on the iTunes Canada jazz albums chart. In 2013, “Simply Love” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard Jazz / Japan and entered iTunes Canada as #1 jazz album. 2014’s release, “The Best Collection” also charted as Billboard Japan’s #1 Jazz Album.


Along with recording success, Loren’s live performances have expanded to include performances with the Jazz Orchestra of Sicily, the Corvallis-OSU Symphony Orchestra in Oregon, the Monroe Symphony in Louisiana and the prestigious Britt Fest Orchestra. For the past three years she has traveled east to west in the US and other parts of the world with her band, including Canada, Japan, Italy, China, Hong Kong, and South Korea. In support of her newest album, “Butterfly Blue”, released in Asia in early 2015 to #1 on the Billboard Jazz Charts and released to the rest of the world in June, Loren is continuing to tour across the US and other parts of the world.
