Deanne Matley - Vocaliste Jazz Canadienne Contemporaine
Deanne Matley Canadian Singer

Canadian Singer Deanne Matley

Canadian singer Deanne Matley is reaching out to the world one perfect song at a time. A sensual dynamic vocalist in many genres and two languages (English and French), she brings her jazz sensibility and deep connection with her audience to everything she sings.

“Her diction is exceptional; her articulation is pure, natural and sublime, and she brings an enormously varied colour palette to her music. Best of all, she lets the songs speak to her in a very personal way, and there is evidence of real imagination in the ones that she writes”

Raul da Gama, Toronto Music Report

Newest Release

The Alberta Lounge

Welcome to The Alberta Lounge, the club where Canadian jazz legend Oscar Peterson was first discovered in Montreal; Alberta – which also happens to be the name of the province where vocalist Deanne Matley grew up and started her music career ten years ago.

Inspired by the Canadian jazz great, The Alberta Lounge features two new tunes of Matley’s: The Alberta Lounge and If You Were Here Today. She also made sure to include two Peterson originals, the haunting Hymn To Freedom and the tender ballad When Summer Comes. The rest of the album’s repertoire was chosen from Peterson’s vast recorded catalogue, including Lionel Hampton and Jeri Jones’s Je ne Sais Pas, for which Matley had the utmost honour of writing original French lyrics. The album also features a remarkable jazz-funk cover of Jorge Ben Hor’s Mas Que Nada, which Matley sings in Portuguese with added vocal harmonies for extra fun.

For the project, Matley recruited some of Montreal’s premier jazz talent, including pianist Taurey Butler, bassist Morgan Moore, and drummer Richard Irwin. Also appearing on the album are her long-time pals pianist Paul Shrofel and guitarist Steve Raegele.

Throughout the album, Matley shines as a first-rate vocal stylist. Her contemporary sound is still deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, but is unafraid of pushing the musical envelope. This anniversary album is dedicated to all Canadians. To quote Oscar, “People are Canada’s greatest resource.”

“Deanne is what the world is waiting for.”  Ranee Lee

The Alberta Lounge was released worldwide on Friday, April 22nd 2022 on Barbette Records.
