Deanna Reuben, concert vocalist and recording artist, has become one of the finest interpreters of the Great American Songbook working today. To date, she has recorded four albums, the latest being a lively jazz holiday recording entitled Christmas Is Here, released in 2013.
A member of The Recording Academy, Deanna was the sole producer of this album, which also features some of Philadelphia's finest jazz musicians to compliment her impeccable vocals.
...
In 2012, Deanna released her third album, The Very Thought Of You.
...
Aside from her vocal talents, Reuben is an accomplished pianist, composer, arranger, voice teacher, and choral director.
Her young life, growing up in Berks County, Pennsylvania, was not always easy, as she was raised mostly by a single working mother and grandmother. They struggled to make ends meet, and pay for voice and piano lessons. She still has fond memories of her Wurlitzer spinet piano where she and her grandmother would spend lots of time playing and singing hymns together. Her music was what brought her joy, when everything else in life was turned upside down. Deanna was singing all throughout high school, winning competitions and garnering solo spots.
Marrying quite young, by today's standards, Deanna was blessed with two beautiful daughters. When the girls were toddlers, she decided to finish her college degree, graduating from Alvernia College, now Alvernia University, with a Bachelor of Arts in Music.
...
A long-time fan of the great American songbook, Reuben began to find this new voice amongst ballads from the golden era of Broadway and from such composers of Harold Arlen, Arthur Schwartz, Frank Loesser and Michel Legrand.
...
Deanna doesn't so much sing to a crowd as engage in a musical dialogue, with a voice that's been compared to Barbra Streisand, Diana Krall and Astrud Gilberto.
...
Deanna also maintains a voice and piano studio in Berks County, PA. A long standing member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, she is currently developing a vocal course for seniors, designed to teach healthy vocal techniques to keep them singing into their 60's and beyond.
Deanna derives great joy from producing and performing benefit concerts for non-profit organizations. She has raised upwards of $16,000 in a single concert, and knows what it takes to produce a successful event.
Giving back to her community isn't something new for her, and she currently serves on the Board of Trustees of Alvernia University, and the Board of the Reading Symphony Orchestra.
Reuben has shown an ability to combine the lyricism of Puccini with the panache of a stage performer and a personality and vulnerability that are innate, creating a near-perfect musical conduit for personal connections with her audience. She has a tremendous sense of style and vocal talent, and the ability to interpret and convey songs with an authenticity and heart that is real. She also has an incredibly lyric voice and a warmth of tone that combine to create an earthy beauty that is compelling. It is that sense of personal veracity, however, that touches an audience, whether from the stage or through a set of speakers.
Deanna Reuben may not be a household name. Yet.

Deanna Reuben's early background found her enjoying Broadway show albums, taking piano and voice lessons, and singing in high school musicals. She was classically trained and after college became a choral director who performed with local opera companies. The highpoint of her early career was performing regularly with the 16-voice chamber ensemble The Washington Singers and singing as a soloist at Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall. Damage caused by neck surgery in 2003 forced her to end her classical career and switch to singing jazz and standards. Her career change has been successful and Christmas Is Here is her fourth CD as a leader.
Although there are times in some of her longer high notes when one can guess that she might have once sung opera (she has perfect control over her voice), throughout Christmas Is Here Deanna Reuben shows that she can swing, improvise with subtlety (mostly in her phrasing) and sound quite comfortable in a jazz setting. Her voice is lovely in all of its registers and one can easily understand all of the words that she sings.

On "A Christmas Love Song," Deanna Reuben shows off her range, hitting some beautiful high notes.

With material as tried, true and in some cases worn smooth as Deanna Reuben tackles on Christmas Is Here, the focus quickly shifts to her own approach - and Reuben, a former classical and opera singer, delivers the goods.
Christmas Is Here features a slate of expected Yuletide chestnuts, from "Silent Night" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" to "Silver Bells" and "The Christmas Song. The revelations, however, come early and often - beginning with Reuben's joy-filled, yet delectably measured delivery.
