SOA is the jazz project of Toronto-based French vocalist Chrystelle Maechler.
Chrystelle is a soulful songstress and poetic lyricist in a contemporary jazz vein.
SOA stands for Simple. Organic. Airy – an acronym that perfectly describes the beguiling sound of the project as SOA’s basis comprises the unorthodox combination of piano, percussion and voice.
SOA is a tribute to Chrystelle’s origins as it is a word meaning precious in the Malagasy language of Madagascar, the birthplace of Chrystelle’s parents.
