While honoring and celebrating—through music—the precious life of Jamie Turner, this event has been organized for the sole purpose of increasing awareness, improving perspectives, and getting people talking about Mental Illnesses in our local community.

With enormous help from the Canadian Mental Health Association, the entire Turner and Tokarz family would like to thank you for supporting this event. Upon the conclusion of this event, we hope you will keep Jamie’s Story and the other personal stories shared close to your heart and reach out with courage and compassion to someone you may know who is suffering from a mental illness. 

Sass Jordan
Sass Jordan
Juno Award-winning artist Sass Jordan has made a living singing, performing, writing and recording music internationally for the past thirty years. She is an internationally recognized singer/songwriter who has sold over one million CDs worldwide.

Winner of Billboard's Best Female Rock Vocalist award, the bilingual Montrealer has toured and/or worked with many music heavyweights, including Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Carlos Santana and Joe Cocker.

In 1992, Jordan performed a duet with Joe Cocker for the soundtrack of the motion picture The Bodyguard, starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, which sold more than 27 million copies worldwide. Her songs have been featured on numerous television shows, including Melrose Place, Party Of Five, Baywatch and Knightrider.

Also an accomplished actress, she starred in the lead role of Janis Joplin in the off-Broadway hit, "Love Janis." Jordan has guest starred on NBC's Sisters and was featured in the Toronto and Winnipeg productions of "The Vagina Monologues."

In 2003, she took on judging duties on the TV ratings blockbuster, Canadian Idol – the same year she shared the stage with The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and others as part of the history-making SARS relief concert in Toronto.

She started as a young teenager in her hometown of Montreal, Quebec, and although her professional journey has led her to many different branches of entertainment, such as the stage and screen, she has never abandoned her heart, the sound and soul of music.

Her latest CD, entitled “From Dusk ‘Til Dawn”, was written and recorded from July through October 2008, and features songs and sounds that reflect the atmosphere of the late 70’s Southern California scene. ‘I started out singing in Westmount Park, with my friends and a couple of acoustic guitars ... passersby would stop and listen for a while, as we honed our skills in public’, says Sass. “Naturally, this type of vocal harmony and melodic sensibility is now a staple in my repertoire, and one I had a blast revisiting on this current recording”.

Joining Sass on the CD is Derek Sharp, who also co-wrote, sang, produced and played multiple instruments, Peter Cardinali on bass guitar, Jorn Anderson on drums and percussion, Gary Breit on keyboards, Michael Borkosky on guitars and co-arrangements, and lastly, Chris Caddell on guitar.

“The title of the CD comes from me wanting to write about that time of day when things are most uncertain, in a state of potentiality, right before the night manifests, with all it’s accompanying fear, passion, quiet, loneliness, dread, and dreams…. It’s the time we seem to be the most vulnerable emotionally, and as an artist, that time is very interesting to explore.”
