Daline’s singing and songwriting chops are the legacy of her Beat-poet father, Jazz surrealist, Ted Joans. He made sure she spent her early years listening and seeing the Jazz Greats in the clubs of their native New York City. That smart and fortunate exposure to Jazz when she was so young lead her to pursue a life in music, and now her own experience onstage makes her a relaxed professional.
Daline's earliest recording sessions were for Lionel Richie and the Commodores, where she worked with the top studio session vocalists in the business. She went on to release several of her own critically acclaimed albums; achieving Billboard's "Top 20" on the Contemporary Jazz charts. Daline worked with smooth jazz saxophonist Gerald Albright, keyboardist Lonnie Jordan of WAR, jazz guitarist Ron Eschete, keyboardist Tim Heintz, composer and trumpeter George Shaw, and pianist, producer and musical director Joe Massimino, among many others.
Headlining the famous Harry Denton‘s Starlight Room in San Francisco, Daline was the lead singer for the renowned Starlight Orchestra from 1995-2005, before moving to Los Cabos, Mexico where she now makes her home.She's made a big impression in Mexico, performing frequently at the internationally known Zinco Jazz Club in Mexico City with her own group and also as lead vocalist with the 17-piece Zinco Big Band. Daline opened the San Miguel de Allende Jazz & Blues Festival in 2007 and 2008, and she is always asked to sing for every large festival and music event in Los Cabos.
Daline lives full time in Cabo, (but away from town, in the desert, on the ocean) with her husband, two cats and two adopted dogs. When she isn't gigging or recording, Daline loves teaching yoga, and was certified as a professional yoga instructor in 2001. "Yoga helps my singing and singing helps my yoga" says this multi-faceted mix of talent!
