• TD International Victoria Jazz Festival

About

Anyone who has seen her perform will know that Edie Daponte brings the element of surprise to every show! Her range and repertoire travel far and wide crossing musical genres and spanning multiple decades and languages. She's equally at home in an intimate lounge setting or on an outdoor festival stage, having established a reputation in the music scene of Vancouver Island and Western Canada as a dynamic and engaging performer.

Edie brings passion, playfulness and an evident love of performance to her live shows. Vancouver Island Music Awards awarded Edie with "Jazz Recording of the Year" in 2017 for her original song "Island Rain" and nominated her as "Vocalist of the Year" in 2016. Edie's original song "Ride the Wind" was nominated in the Traditional category for the 2017 International Portuguese Music Awards (IPMA). "Young at Heart" was nominated in 2016 for Best Album - Jazz with Vocals by the Independent Music Awards. Emotive, playful and passionate, Edie's voice lends itself perfectly to the wide range of music she loves to feature in her shows. She moves seamlessly from Jazz to Bossa Nova, Blues to Fado, switching between English, Portuguese, Spanish and French numbers with ease.

Edie has performed at festivals including the Victoria Jazz Festival and the Vancouver Latin Festival and toured theatres across Vancouver Island and BC. You'll find her accompanied by the finest Victoria jazz musicians. Together they create a wonderful atmosphere, engaging audiences large and small, drawing them in, and rewarding them with classic numbers they love to hear.

Edie's 'Under Paris Skies' show featuring the music of Edith Piaf has proved to be a fan favourite with sell out shows throughout British Columbia. With support from Creative BC, Edie released two new studio albums in 2019: her globally inspired 'Alegria' and 'Under Paris Skies' the music of Edith Piaf. "Under Paris Skies" has been nominated by Independent Music Awards 2020 for Best Tribute Album

Upcoming Appearances

When Edie sings, she delivers an intimate and dynamic performance honoring the great songwriters of Latin and Jazz standards. Her honest and passionate delivery draws the audience directly into her experience.

What People say about Edie...

"Edie Daponte's ability to draw large crowds to her performances speaks volumes about her talent and the connection she has with her fans. Regularly performing around the south Island, Daponte has built a significant following, with many attendees returning to experience her captivating shows time and again. Her role in the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society's Sunday Jazz series further highlights her popularity and the consistent appeal of her musical talent"
Don Bodger, Chemainus Valley Courier Read More...


"Sidney favourite Edie Daponte wraps up her local shows this summer with a finale in Sidney, before embarking on a province wide tour. With a repertoire that includes blues, jazz and singing in multiple languages, Daponte has built a loyal local following in Greater Victoria and up the Saanich Peninsula. "
-Nick Murray, Peninsula News Review Read More...


"Edie is an amazing singer. (she makes me weep) the three of you made beautiful music."
Bill Henderson, Chilliwack


"Edie Daponte has such a huge following the Osborne Bay Pub is always packed whenever she comes to Crofton" Don Bodger, Chemainus Valley Courier Read More...


"Edie steals the show, channelling Piaf in this intimate theatre experience. You'll be transported and lifted by the Parisian atmosphere and leave with a smile and a tune on your lips. "
-Deborah Rogers, Seaside Magazine Read More...


"Wonderfully playful... Edie Daponte's Piaf is stunningly accurate, vibrato and all... backed by a veritable who's who of Victoria jazz musicians."
-Don Descoteau, Monday Magazine


"No one puts on a performance like Edie. I still can't comprehend fully all that went on last night. It's one thing to sing a song - Edie "becomes" part of the song that she is singing and takes the audience on the journey with her. First class talent and quite possibly the kindest most generous person I have ever met. It was embarrassment of riches last night - from Edie's impeccable voice to the golden tones coming from Joey's '55 Gibson to Damian's skillful handling of the drums - every single part of the drums! What a lucky audience to have witnessed that show last night..."
-Doug Pickard- Ground Zero Lounge


"Sidney vocalist Edie Daponte shines when she's singing with a small combo. But in front of an energetic 17 piece jazz band like the Don Leppard Big Band, she really sparkles. The incomparable Edie Daponte and the fabulous Don Leppard Big Band played to an enthusiastic packed house at the Osborne Bay Pub in Crofton Sunday afternoon. The band dazzled and Daponte enchanting as always in a spectacular performance "
-Don Bodger, Chemainus Valley Courier


"Your music is definitely resonating with many of our listeners... You're a true talent"
-Robyn Burns, CBC All Points West


"As Piaf, Edie Daponte gives everything to us on the stage. The performance is magnificent, Bravo! La Môme, Edith Piaf, would be pleased with this remarkable homage."
-Dominique Wozniack, La Société francophone de Victoria


"Your voice is amazing! You are such an original and fantastic singer!"
-Paulo Garrido, RadioBC 101FM CFUV


"Her smooth jazz ballads are a perfect summer evening soundtrack"
-Music BC


"Edie has an incredible voice, energy and repertoire and Joey is one of the best there is. So lovely! I highly recommend hiring them for your next event."
-Michele Murphy, Saanich Voice Online
