Duane Forrest is a singer-songwriter and multimedia artist from Toronto, Canada. His unique sound blending jazz, reggae, bossa nova, and soul and smooth vocals draws on his experiences traveling the world, falling in love, and finding wonder in the joys and sorrows of a common human experience. He has toured in Canada, Europe, and Central America. In 2017, Duane debuted his first theatre production, Climb, a live album experience based on his concept album, The Climb. Climb hit the stage again at the 2018 Toronto Fringe Festival, where Toronto Fringe Festival founder Gregory Nixon described Duane’s show as “an engaging, multilayered work of song, storytelling and movement” and “one of the highlights of this year’s Fringe.” His forthcoming double jazz and fusion album Sol e Sol builds on themes of love, heartbreak, and self-discovery, reflecting musically Duane’s growth as an artist and a human being. Aside from his innate drive to create beautiful things, Duane also has a passion for arts education. In 2011 he founded Genesis Community of the Arts, a registered Canadian charity offering music and arts education to marginalized children and youth in Toronto and Central Amer... more

The Artists In Residence program invites an artist each month to spend Sunday nights at the hotel. Ace AIR is a retreat from the world of domestic habits. It is an immersion in our ecosystem to focus on developing a piece, any piece, presented at the end of the month in our public spaces.
