About Melody Diachun:
Melody Diachun is an ideal jazz singer for the 21st century. She has a very appealing and friendly voice, a subtle but exciting improvising style, and is open to the influences of current pop and r&b music. She interprets every song in her own individual fashion. The JUNO-nominated singerÃ¢â¬â¢s brand of groove-jazz is both creative and accessible, appealing to a wide audience while being joyfully unpredictable.
MelodyÃ¢â¬â¢s most recent CD, EQ, features her performing both new material and superior pop songs by Paul Simon, Radiohead, Joni Mitchell and DÃ¢â¬â¢Angelo with a freewheeling jazz quartet comprised of Cory Weeds on soprano, electric pianist Tilden Webb, drummer Dan Gaucher and bassist-guitarist Doug Stephenson (MelodyÃ¢â¬â¢s husband). The versatile and joyful singing, blazing solos, and fresh arrangements make EQ her finest recording to date.
Melody Diachun was nominated for a JUNO and in 2009 for CanadaÃ¢â¬â¢s National Jazz Awards as Ã¢â¬ÅFemale Vocalist of the Year.Ã¢â¬Â She is currently recording her newest album, set for release in early 2018. Ã¢â¬ÅIt will be a groove-based contemporary jazz album that is funky, rhythmic and fun. As much as I love standards from the 1930s and Ã¢â¬Ë40s, when I sing a song that IÃ¢â¬â¢ve written, it seems more honest because it reflects my thoughts. It is always my goal to contribute to the tradition by writing originals that sound like they could have been standards.Ã¢â¬Â
