TD Niagara welcomes Denielle Bassels on July 29th to Jazz In The Park in beautiful Niagara On The Lake! Bassels is an exciting Toronto vocalist, award-winning songwriter, and dynamic performer. “She will stop you in your tracks” - Juliet Dunn, Executive Director, Niagara Jazz Festival. Bassels’ voice has been described as Julie London meets Amy Winehouse and Ella Fitzgerald; and her music akin to Koop, Nouvelle Vague, and Nina Simone. While influenced by jazz giants, her sound remains her own; romantic, modern and unique."...one of the most memorable recordings I heard in 2017. Denielle is such a wonderful storyteller. -“ says Terry McElligott of 91.1 JazzFM 91.1In her latest album, Denielle merges genres of swing, indie-pop, blues and folk in a way that is fresh and exciting.Whimsy and charm intertwine elegantly with a feeling that is natural and life-like. The songs pull you just beyond the borders of reality, so you can get lost happily.Denielle will be sharing songs from her latest album "What About Wool WIshbags" and will give listeners a sneak peak into the new album "Poppies in Bloom" backed by the Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Council for The Arts.
