MELODY DIACHUN is a vocalist, songwriter, arranger, and a warm performer praised for her “soulful confidence, exquisite intonation, phrasing, and sense of time.”-All About Jazz. With five albums as leader, Melody is an increasingly significant artist with her own sound, style, and approach to creating new music. Notable recordings include “EQ” and “Metaphora” with Altered Laws. The latter won ‘Outstanding Jazz Record of The Year’ at the 2008 Western Canadian Music Awards and was nominated for a JUNO. A year later, Melody was nominated for ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ at the National Jazz Awards. “She is – and will always be – a force to reckon with in contemporary vocal music.”-Toronto Music Report
SUMNER’S TALES: THE MUSIC OF STING is a bold next step for Melody Diachun, an artist with a penchant for pairing atypical material with improvising musicians. Born Gordon Sumner, Sting is one of the greatest living songwriters, both in his solo career and with the legendary British band, The Police. Melody remains faithful to the essence of the songs, whether they are mega-hits like “Roxanne” or B-sides like “Murder By Numbers.” The soloists roam free over grooves and soundscapes that run the gamut from lush to bombastic.
