About the Album

Canadian jazz vocalist Deanne Matley’s fifth album, Because I Loved, is a tour-de-force, taking the listener on an emotional journey from despair to quiet contentment, with stops at red-hot passion and the excitement of new love along the way. Deanne recruited some of Montréal’s premier jazz talent for the project, including drummer Jim Doxas (who also produced the album), pianist Paul Shrofel, bassist Adrian Vedady, and guest vocalist Ranee Lee. Because I Loved features four original compositions of Deanne’s to round out a song list that includes saxophone legend Stanley Turpentine’s “Sugar”, the haunting “Forget Me” (written for the great Shirley Horn), and remarkable covers of songs by Journey (“Open Arms”) and Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors (“The Wine We Drink”). Deanne Matley’s voice and passion for jazz have taken her from her Alberta home to New York, France, Mongolia, and back. She sings standards, originals, and an impressive variety of covers with combos large and small, including Calgary’s Prime Time Big Band. Her previous four albums have garnered her Top 10 radio play across Canada and fans around the world. She divides her time between Calgary and Montréal, and is excited to celebrate Because I Loved with performances in both cities. Because I Loved was released worldwide on Friday, May 11th, 2018.
