Canadian vocalist Deanne Matley

“In the time-honored tradition of artists who forge their own paths, Deanne Matley has made a niche for herself on the Canadian vocal jazz contemporary scene. Whether she’s tackling immortal standards, singing her own original compositions or working unique arrangements of modern day pop tunes, you can be sure to hear a personal voice, imbued with power and emotion, and that je-ne-sais-quoi that separates genuine jazz singers from the simply talented vocalists. A must hear!”
Stanley Péan, Host of Quand le jazz est là, weekdays on Radio-Canada’s ICI Musique

“Deanne is what the world is waiting for.” – Ranee Lee, renowned Canadian jazz vocalist

“Deanne Matley has it all: unerring pitch, great time, beautiful phrasing, and the ability to get inside a lyric and deliver a compelling story. She’s destined for great things.”
Larry Koonse, jazz guitarist, Los Angeles

“Deanne is a captivating vocalist. She is rooted in the standard tradition, yet unafraid to push the music forward.”
Jim Doxas, jazz drummer and producer, Montreal

“This girl’s a pro!”
Harold Mabern, Legendary post-bop pianist, composer and band leader, New York (RIP)
