Toronto-based singer-songwriter Denielle Bassels returns with Little Bit a’ Love, her first new album since 2017.

“I felt a deep longing to create something that delved even deeper into the human experience, and so Little Bit a’ Love is a collection of songs that explores themes of loss, depression, and the pursuit of purpose, all while celebrating the unwavering spirit of love,” Bassels says.

The 10-track recording features nine original songs written by Bassels (two of which were co-written with Mike Mathieson) along with a cover of “I Wanna Be Like You (The Monkey Song)” from The Jungle Book.

Described as a blend of folk, swing, and blues, the album finds Bassels exploring new vocal styles and approaches to orchestration.
