Cashbox Canada caught up with Ori Dagan at his home in Toronto, Canada and he was bubbling over with enthusiasm on his new found way to reach his fans with his online concert series. “On April 23rd, I played my Nat King Cole program, and since I was part of the #MusicTogether series i wanted to pay it forward and donate 1/2 of my tips that night to the Daily Bread Food Bank. $212 was raised that night for this charity, which amounts to 212 nutritious meals! What a feeling!”
“Since then I have been doing a "Charity Spotlight" each week. I featured the Brain Tumor Foundation of Canada in honour of George Gershwin, Heart and Stroke in honour of Peggy Lee.”

Ori Dagan’s critically acclaimed releases S’Cat Got My Tongue (2009) and Less Than Three <3 (2012) established a daring musical adventurer on the global jazz landscape.
Having won numerous accolades for his witty and inventive original songs — from “Googleable” (his ode to a search engine) to “Clap on the 2 and the 4” (an anthem for the rhythmically challenged), it’s his release Nathaniel: A Tribute to Nat King Cole (2017) and accompanying collection of imaginative and delightful videos — jazz music’s first ever visual album — that have created the largest bounty of awards for the singer yet.
Debuting at #1 on the iTunes Canada Jazz Chart and hitting more than 100k views on YouTube within days of release, Nathaniel: A Tribute to Nat King Cole delighted audiences with its flash of inspiration towards Cole’s notable works. The dynamic multi-media project was widely lauded for pushing artistic boundaries and leveraging the status quo; it has won tens of Canadian and International awards, and continues to receive top features at countless festivals around the world — including SXSW, the inaugural Public Diplomacy Week in Seoul, Korea, the TanJazz Festival in Tangier, Morocco, and 2019’s Bare Bones International Film & Music Festival.
