Deanna’s musical pilgrimage spans a lifetime of diverse experiences. Singing telegrams and choral tours to swingin’ big band and gypsy-jazz, psychedelic rock to sacred ceremony. Her genre-fluid songwriting is a reflection of this odyssey and a recent return to her soul song is reaching into the depths of the human heart and mind with a deep reverence for humanity and our planet.
Her move to the Sunshine Coast of BC, Canada in 2017 brought great blessings. Secret Beach B&B Suites is not only a top rated accommodation with visiting guests from around the world but also where Deanna and her husband Dave Biggs team up to host their popular SoulShine Garden Concert Series, showcasing some of Canada’s most cherished talent.
Her long awaited sophomore album Every Little Spark has come to light and features some of Canada’s finest musicians. An Earth Day 2024 release stands as a fitting testament to Deanna’s writing resurgence, honouring her lifelong dedication to the symphony of life and the profound connection between music, the soul, and our planet. A cast of talented friends will kick off this celebration with a cabaret opener and Deanna will be supported by an ensemble of seasoned Vancouver musicians.
~ Deeply rooted in the Vancouver gypsy–jazz scene for over 20 yrs as the “sultry and dynamic chanteuse” of The Hot Club of Mars, Knight’s partnership with world renowned luthier and guitarist Michael Dunn landed the 7 piece ensemble many prestigious jazz and folk festival stages. The repertoire stretches well beyond swing… into bossa, tango, waltz, contemporary and chosen originals. You can still enjoy a special annual appearance (or two) when the Hotties reunite each summer.
Deanna’s long history with the Canadian Jam Band scene was initiated in the early 90’s as a co-founder of Ontario’s Fat Cats. She currently satisfies her passion for this style and community with Vancouver’s Grateful Dead Tribute – GD/BC.
