• TD International Victoria Jazz Festival

About

With her sultry tones and soulful singing, Edie Daponte is establishing a reputation within the music scene of Vancouver Island and mainland B.C. as a dynamic and engaging performer. Edie was nominated as Vocalist of the Year by Vancouver Island Music Awards 2016. Emotive and passionate, Edie's voice lends itself perfectly to a wide range of jazz standards, seamlessly moving from jazz to Bossa Nova and back again, switching between English, Portuguese, Spanish and French numbers with ease.

A regular performer in her home town of Sidney as the house singer for the Beacon Landing, Edie has performed at festivals including the Victoria Jazz Festival and the Vancouver Latin Festival. You'll often find her accompanied by the talented Joey Smith. Together they create a wonderful atmosphere, engaging audiences large and small, drawing the audiences in and rewarding them with classic numbers they love to hear.

Listen and Download

Edie is excited to be releasing her second studio album, Young at Heart. It's a collection of Edie's own original material alongside some of her and her fans' favourite standards. Recorded in Victoria, BC by Juno-nominated Joby Baker at Baker Studios Ltd., the album features arrangements by Joey Smith with musical performances by Baker, Smith, Karel Roessingh, Richard Moody, Damian Graham, Adrian Dolan, Monik Nordine and Miguelito Valdes.
