“There’s a kind of intimate quality to his voice. An honesty that is really remarkable and mellifluous…and rich.”
Robert Enright - Globe & Mail /CBC Radio
With three successful studio projects and hundreds of club, concert, and festival dates to his credit, Toronto-based crooner VINCENT WOLFE continues to wow audiences in Canada and in the U.S. His talent has earned praise from revered jazz vocalists Marlena Shaw, Sheila Jordan, and jazz-soul diva Jean Carne, and his voice has been described by Manhattan Transfer founding member Laurel Massé as “somewhere between Chet Baker and Mel Tormé — a wonderful place to be!”
Admired for his warm, velvety vocals and relaxed charm, VINCENT WOLFE is also a natural storyteller. His patter before, during, and in between songs is often hilarious, as is his spontaneous interplay with both band and audience members as he invites the listener in, like a valued friend.
Vincent has toured the club and festival circuit in Canada, and in select U.S. cities. He has also performed all around the globe during his contracts aboard the world-famous Cunard luxury cruise line, appearing with the Queen’s Room Orchestra, the Chart Room jazz trio, the Royal Cunard Big Band, and later headlining with the Royal Court Theatre Orchestra.
Vincent Wolfe’s warm stage presence and extensive, eclectic repertoire is a guaranteed crowd pleaser, whether he’s in an intimate cabaret room, a swinging jazz club, or concertizing in a theatre setting. Renowned Canadian entertainment columnist John Kennedy has declared Vincent “Canada’s next star-in-waiting.”
In 2008, Vincent was nominated for a prestigious MAC Award* for his New York City cabaret debut, enchanting audiences at the popular Laurie Beechman Theatre.
Aside from his many engagements at some of the top jazz and cabaret venues in Canada and abroad, he has appeared at countless corporate and private events and wowed the nightclub scene with his Vegas-style Headliner show entitled “As Long As I’m Singing: A Tribute to the Crooner Era and Beyond.”
In 2018, Vincent Wolfe returned (by popular demand) to Cunard's Queen Victoria, for a series of three contracts, commencing in April and finishing mid-December.
After five years of fronting Toronto’s Bob Cary Orchestra, Vegas North Orchestra, and guesting with the Swing Shift Big Band, Vincent Wolfe now performs regularly with the very popular George Lake Big Band, as well as his own jazz ensemble and the recently-formed Vincent Wolfe Seven.
As of mid-March 2020, Vincent's concert schedule evaporated due to the pandemic, as with most entertainers worldwide, however he is hoping to get back to work as soon as it's feasible and safe. Take care everybody!
