Deanne Matley

Canadian vocalist Deanne Matley has many superpowers. Trained as a jazz vocalist, she brings a sensual style, a stunning emotional range, and a deep connection with her audience to everything she sings. She’s made a name for herself across Canada and beyond with her dynamic, knock ‘em dead performances with combos of all sizes and albums ranging from standards to pop Christmas favourites.

Deanne, a flexible performer with an eclectic repertoire in both English and French, has wowed audiences at clubs and festivals in Canada, France, and even Mongolia. She’s shared the stage with jazz greats including Larry Koonse, Bryan Lynch, Matt Catingub, Tommy Banks and Al Kay, has been featured in Downbeat magazine and is a featured artist on ICI Musique (CBC Quebec). In her hometown of Calgary, she was a 2019 YYC Music Award nominee for “Female Artist of the Year” and 2020 nominee for “Jazz Recording of the Year” for the YYC Music Awards. She sings with groups including her own Deanne Matley Quartet in Montreal, Calgary, and Europe.

Deanne’s latest album, Because I Loved, an emotion-driven combination of original songs and heartfelt jazz and pop covers, reached #6 on the Canadian national jazz charts.

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

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
