Darlene Ketchum (vocals), with Kelvin Ketchum (keys), Gerry Teichrob (bass), and Tyler Friesen (drums).
With a little funk on the side and some sweet vocalizing this band will move your toes and touch your souls. Darlene’s warm and gutsy vocals belt out her fresh arrangements of soul/jazz/R&B and gospel standards plus some of her original tunes. Besides her vocal talents, Darlene is an experienced songwriter, arranger, teacher, choral director, and keyboard accompanist. She is the choral director of the Vancouver-based “Marcus Mosely Chorale” (alongside Marcus Mosely and Bill Sample) and loves to encourage, inspire and mentor artists at all stages. Darlene has directed, and taught, college-level music programs. Darlene released her first solo CD, Soul Connections (Extended Edition), in October 2014, and two of her songs have been nominated for awards.
