About

Edie DaPonte

Instruments: Vocals details
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 often find her accompanied by talented musicians, Joey Smith on guitar and Karel Roessingh on piano. 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
