Masi studied voice and piano at the Budapest Conservatory of Music in her native
Hungary before moving to Canada to further her studies at the Royal Conservatory of
Music (RCM) in Toronto, where she launched her singing and modeling career.
As a model, she was photographed in Europe, Canada & the U.S.A. She had principal
parts in television commercials for such well known brands as Oil of Olay, Ballantine
Scotch, Pledge and Sunbeam. Her work in these fields earned her membership in the
Alliance of Canadian Cinema Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA).
At the same time, she continued to develop musically, acquired her ARCT from the RCM
and began singing with the world famous Toronto Mendelssohn Choir. It wasn't long
before she was collaborating on a project with Bobby Scott in New York. She has
been performing with renowned artists ever since, culminating with her recent
work with the Norman Amadio Trio.
Mr. Amadio is no stranger to fame or legends himself. During his distinguished career
as one of Canada's outstanding pianists he has accompanied such stars as
Judy Garland, Englebert Humperdink and Paul Anka, as well as such famed jazz singers
as Dinah Washington, Carmen Macrea, Mel Torme, Joe Williams and Cab Calloway.
A natural with languages, Masi is equally at ease singing in Hungarian,
English or French. Masi is a chanteuse in the true sense of the word.
Jazz legend Bobby Scott described her as "a unique talent and voice. It is not jazz
or even pop. It's a throw back to the yesteryear and without any imitation! She just
sings as she does! I find it fascinating myself!"
Globe & Mail's Erika Ritter, on hearing her perform, marveled at "the
astounding resonance and depth" of Masi's voice.
