Deanne Hallman is a vocalist who, like many natural born singers, had her first solo in a local church — in her case, Amazing Grace, at age 6 in Walters Falls, Ontario, Canada.

During her teenage years she played bass and blues in The Benevolent Groundhogs, and was nurtured musically by the breadth and depth of musicians within her local area.

While studying classical techniques at York, Wilfrid Laurier, and Waterloo universities, Deanne began privately crafting her own songs.

Her debut album, Hello World, is reflective of her musical curiosities and has flavours of rock, orchestral, Africana, and jazz.

"A singer-songwriter who can rock the house, belt the blues or sing a lullaby.”
- Carol Holland

“Her silken smooth voice & thoughtful lyrics will have you humming along to her jazz/blues/rock vibe - true versatility!”
- Zak Erb
