Deanna Reuben, concert vocalist and recording artist, has become one of the finest interpreters of the Great American Songbook working today. To date, she has recorded four albums, the latest being a lively jazz holiday recording entitled Christmas Is Here, released in 2013.
A member of The Recording Academy, Deanna was the sole producer of this album, which also features some of Philadelphia’s finest jazz musicians to compliment her impeccable vocals.
Her first recording, The Look Of Love, released in 2005, brought her high praise from critics and casual listeners alike. Her sophomore album, On Life And Love, released in 2009 features two of her original compositions. Teaming with R. Martin Mellinger, her haunting ballad “Here in the Night,” leaves her audiences mesmerized as she makes that soulful connection. In 2012, Deanna released her third album, The Very Thought Of You. Inspired by the artistry of Chris Botti, this album features some lush lines as her voice weaves gently with flugelhorn and tenor sax.
Deanna Reuben fell in love with music at the age of seven, when she began taking piano lessons. Reuben, who was named after vocalist and Judy Garland contemporary Deanna Durbin, found singing at the age of fourteen, and never had a second thought about what she wanted to do with her life. Her career as a singer has run the gamut from Broadway to madrigals to opera, but Reuben’s versatility has been a key to her success. Aside from her vocal talents, Reuben is an accomplished pianist, composer, arranger, voice teacher, and choral director.
