For the past several years Ralph Barrat has been maaking a name for himself singing jazz up and down the Island, Vancouver and abroad, crooning with many jazz bands from small to big, and often seen performing and singing behind a piano.

Barrat loves to play and sing following the stylings of great piano vocalists Nat King Cole, Diana Krall, Harry Connick Jr., Mose Allison and others.

You’ll hear classic Sinatra favourites, lots of Duke, accompanied by his own sensitive, rhythmic keyboard (piano, organ, vibes).
