Lois Deloatch & Jim Berry

Vocalist and songwriter Lois Deloatch marks thirty years in music with her 2024 recording, Love Always.  Recognized internationally for her rich contralto voice, thought-provoking lyrics, and distinctive blend of jazz, folk, blues, and spirituals, Deloatch has shared the stage with Ellis Marsalis, Arturo Sandoval, and Dr. Billy Taylor, among other luminaries.   With this, her sixth recording as leader, Deloatch says, “I’m offering music I hope will resonate, inspire and unify. I want listeners to feel our connectedness and shared humanity.” Her limited-edition release, Hymn to Freedom: Homage to Oscar Peterson, was selected as one of the Top 10 CDs of 2008 by JazzTimes Magazine’s music critic Owen Cordle. Music reviewer, Joe Vanderford, says, “Deloatch’s voice is thick and wide. She is a vocalist cast as an instrumentalist, another improviser contributing to the whole.” More info at www.loisdeloatch.com.

Miami-based jazz vocalist, Jim Berry, is a seasoned performer, lyricist, and recording artist. His concerts blend classic and contemporary music. His latest project, Smooth Sailin’ reflects his appreciation for and expertise in a broad range of musical styles.  Born in Chicago, Jim is an avid dancer who brought Chicago-style Steppin’, an urban ballroom dance, to South Florida. In addition to his musical pursuits, Jim is an Emmy award-winning journalist and an evening news anchor for CBS News Miami. He is a graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.
