Denielle Bassels merges the swinging carefree sounds of 20's 30's gypsy swing with blues, and folk to create a warm, bright and sassy palette, as she paints a fresh & funky listening experience. Denielle's voice has been compared to 'Julie London meets Amy Winehouse', Adele and Norah Jones, yet the sound remains her own, romantic, modern, swingin' and easy to listen to.

Farley Flex of Canadian Idol describes Denielle as “unique and fresh!”

The repertoire of her Quintet is a creative mix of popular tunes and old standards as well as original compositions by Denielle. Comprised of some of the best musicians in the GTA, Denielle plays with a dynamic group of players; Jacob Gorzhaltsan on Clarinet, Andy Mac on guitar, Scott Hunter on upright bass, Joe Ryan on drums and Denielle's stellar vocals. This talent has arranged it all to get you up on your feet!

Recently Denielle Released her full length original album "What About Wool Wishbags" at Lula Lounge in Toronto on Feb. 8, 2017. Kris Kadwell of Canoe FM 100.9 calls it "A rare treat for Dj's - a real gem". and "-an incredible voice, combined with a high calibre of musicianship". Currently she can be seen performing in jazz clubs across Canada such as The Jazz Room in Waterloo, Jazz Bistro, Toronto various Jazz Festivals including Toronto, Beaches, Barrie, and Merrickville. Denielle and her stellar band on March 3, 2017 presented a performance at the Empire Theatre in Belleville for the Gala screening of Yo Yo Ma's "Music of Strangers". She is also a regular feature for the Jazz FM 91.1 Jazz Safari's held in Toronto and abroad.

Cannot say enough about these talented professionals. The music was gorgeous; truly soothing and rivals any of the best jazz professionals out there. Everyone at our event was in awe of the incredible musical talents and despite all the wonderful components of our event, photos, lunch and gifts - our guests raved about the band! . Denielle's talents were extraordinary, and matched by her generosity of spirit. Denielle and the Macdaddys will be hired for future functions without question. We could not have been more pleased!

Denielle is a pleasure to work with. She and her band are very accommodating and even learned a few extra songs for our first dances that we had requested. Their love for jazz is depicted in their performance and their bubbly personalities shine through. Her voice is so unique and the general level of talent within the group is outstanding. We couldn't be happier that we chose them to be a part of our special day.
