Deanna Knight Tree-O will perform compositions from my songbook on Sunday Nov 13th during an hour service in the beautifully renovated sanctuary of St. Andrews Wesley in Vancouver (Nelson and Burrard) 4-5pm. I’ll be joined on stage by Simon Kendall on piano and Finn Manniche on cello.
“Lift your spirits and bring yourself back to balance with our Jazz Vespers service. We combine Vancouver’s best jazz with meditations on faith and life to connect us emotionally and spiritually to music, ourselves and each other. This service has been described as meaningful and renewing by our congregation and wider community. Join us to reflect on life, faith, and the mix of it all.”

Our SoulShine Garden Series will finish up next Thursday Aug 18th featuring the Deanna Knight Tree-O. I’m thrilled to announce that I will share the stage with the infamous “Slug’ Simon Kendall on piano and Sunshine Coast’s very own Sarah Poon on cello.
Opening up will be the very charming mother/son duo Bellows and Strings, sharing a joyous mix of fiddle tunes, waltzes, jazz, and bluegrass. Noah Ord on fiddle, vocals and percussion and Anna Lumiere on vocals, keys and accordion.
Promises to be a wonderful evening of music wrapping up our series with a musical bang!

These Lovelies are so Gooood!

by Deanna Knight on June 17, 2022

Wow – we sure enjoyed our sold out show with The Good Lovelies at St. Bart’s June 14th.
These beautiful women are so darn talented. I got to know each of them a little better as we hosted them at our B&B for a couple nights and I can’t wait for the next time.

I was thrilled to warm up our full house alongside Anna Lumiere on piano.
Thanx to the Sunshine Coast for being so supportive of the arts!!
A great night all around.

Carry Me Home – debut

by Deanna Knight on May 13, 2022

I’m slowly getting my new crop of originals out into the world. I’ve shared several of these songs over the years on stage but yet to share them online or record them on a proper “CDish kinda dealio”
It all takes time but I assure you that I am chipping away at this and would so appreciate LIKES and COMMENTS and even subscribing to my Youtube channel, as I grow my online presence. It would mean a lot to me and encourage more songs to be posted :) ha!

Here is the online debut of Carry Me Home. This song was originally written in 2012 in my usual process of creating melody and lyric without an instrument. My personal thoughts on Heaven on Earth sparked the initial idea. Since then, I have had the unique pleasure of sharing this in palliative care, in hospice and at many Celebrations’ of Life. Funny how songs take on a life of their own. Perhaps it will stir a whole new meaning for you as well.

SoulShine Garden Concert Series!

by Deanna Knight on May 13, 2022

Thrilled to announce our first 3 wonderful SoulShine Garden Concerts for this summer 2022!!

Please save your seats directly through EventBrite HERE OR if you live on the Sunshine Coast you can also purchase seats at One Flower One Leaf Gallery in Lower Gibsons (436 Marine Dr.)

Last year I experimented with a sliding scale approach and I was so pleasantly surprised at the generosity of folks who really wanted to add extra support to the artists. Professional touring artists and the entire arts and culture sector have been hit hard since 2020.  Most of our artists have been shut out of their careers due to venues closing and festival cancellations. This year looks like humanity can celebrate on all accounts. Let’s connect in community and raise each others spirits together. Hope you can join us for some amazing music in our beautiful garden.

More shows to come!

Welcome Good Lovelies to the Coast!

by Deanna Knight on May 2, 2022

Super thrilled to announce this wonderful show!

Please join us for a fun-loving time with these very talented women. I’m so happy to be opening with some of my own songs and to bring more of my friends to our little Sunshine Coast town of Gibsons. The wonderful Anna Lumiere will be joining me on piano.

With nine critically acclaimed releases, a #1 single, a JUNO Award, and a devoted fanbase blanketing the globe, roots-pop combo The Good Lovelies are among Canada’s brightest musical lights. The hardworking trio of Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough, and Susan Passmore — guitar-wielding songwriters all, and queens of the goose bump–raising three-part harmony.

Get your tickets before May 31st… and save! HERE
Eventbrite and I have made friends so no more spread sheets with endless names and emails for me.

Our first 3 shows of the SoulShine Summer Concert Series will launch soon…. so keep in contact :)
