ProduktinfoDEDE PRIEST grew up in Dallas, Texas, raised by her hard-working, young mother, who taught her how to live and dream. Instilling in her daughter the importance of a full life of experiences and opportunities, Dede's mother encouraged her to pursue both the challenge of higher education and the passionate fulfillment of music, in all its varieties and colors. Classically trained on the violin from age ten, Dede’s exposure to a wide and diverse cultural foundation has enriched her life and her ability to relate her soul within her music. She loved her violin, but it was always clear that her voice was her first instrument. As a little girl, Dede would sing along to whatever she could find. As she grew older, it was the rawness of Blues and Gospel that shaped her talent the most.
Moving to Austin, Texas to attend the University of Texas, she earned a degree in Philosophy, then followed her heart and let the music lead. In Austin, Texas, a thriving live music haven, Dede began singing professionally. Brandishing vocals rooted in the Texas Blues tradition, Dede Priest has shared the stage with Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Leon Russell, Tommy Shannon (Double Trouble), and Harry Belafonte, among others. Pinned early on as a “Modern Day Blues Queen”, Dede Priest is now gaining wider international recognition for her powerful delivery of a unique style that crosses lines and “turns Blues, Soul, and Jazz inside out”. Performing in the USA, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, Portugal, Spain, and Italy, Dede Priest continues to forge ahead with successful shows, radio play, and television appearances, including prestigious events such as Rhythm & Blues Night Oosterpoort - The Netherlands, Belgium Rhythm & Blues - Peer, Simply Blues Viana - Portugal, Trasimeno Blues Festival – Italy, Martin Luther King Keynote – Austin, Texas, to name a few.
2011 opens a new chapter in the musical career of Dede Priest, bringing the release of her new CD, “Kinky At The Root”, an honest and deeply personal portrait, and a long-anticipated follow-up to her previous CD jewel, “Candy Moon” (2007), which received exceptional reviews.
