Champagne Sundays is an Ottawa based jazz-folk girl group with tunes to snap your fingers to and honey sweet harmonies. Champagne Sundays consists of two 20 year old singer-songwriters, Jazmine Wykes and Emma Bornheimer. The two came together in 2016 during their first year of university. Both instantly fell in love with one another’s songs and they have been singing together ever since. In the fall of 2017, the two girls teamed up with good friend and bassist Emily Baird, and jazz-drummer Cameron MacDonald to form Champagne Sundays- named after one of Jazmine’s songs about lazy summer days.
The girls are inspired by soul-filled female jazz singers such as Lianne La Havas and Ezperanza Spalding. Their songs are very lyrically charged and they love to experiment with harmonies. As the band grows, the girls are playing more and more in Ottawa and surrounding areas, and will soon be recording their first EP.
