Ori Dagan is an experienced artist based in Canada. Ori Dagan is also a Jazz singer-songwriter and has attracted a dedicated and growing audience, both in his native Toronto and internationally.

Ori Dagan brings a wry and agile sense of swing to everything he does, whether interpreting a standard, spinning a pop tune on its head or introducing his own original music and lyrics. His rich bass-baritone is unmistakable; his irreverent song-craft speaks to the lineage of Nat Cole novelty numbers and the impeccably swinging humor of the late Bob Dorough and Dave Frishberg.

His scat singing has the natural, fluid, bop-inflected feel of the best in that idiom, inspired by heroines and heroes Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Anita O’Day and Sheila Jordan (with whom Dagan recorded a duet in 2017).


 Ori Dagan’s 2022 release is a witty sendup of life in the digital age, features a top-tier octet with musical direction and arrangements by ace guitarist Nathan Hiltz. Funded by FACTOR (Foundation for Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings), the album was praised by John Devenish of JAZZ. FM91 as “fun, provocative, fancy-free and spirited,” and by journalist and author Jeanne Beker as “the perfect balance between modernity and nostalgia”.


During the pandemic, Ori’s weekly live streamed concert Jazz It Up garnered over one million views collectively, with episodes devoted to Nat Cole, The Rat Pack, Peggy Lee and Louis Armstrong as well as songs of Disney, the ’80s and ’90s and more.
