Lois Deloatch Gomes with Guest Vocalist, 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.
