Deandra is a Brandon, Manitoba born singer/songwriter currently residing in Kamloops, British Columbia Canada. When shes not playing music Deandra works as a yoga instructor and mental health counsellor. Deandra is creatively driven by the stories of human experience and resilience she hears and creatively weaves these intimate themes into her songs. She has been able to bridge her passion for community and music by incorporating a participatory art project named "Letters" into her live performance.
Deandra’s folk sound is grounded in her early exposure to more complex styles of artists like Joni Mitchell and Aretha Franklin. More recently Deandra draws inspirations from artist such as Fiest, Gill Scott, Jenn Grant, Chet Faker and Meg Mac. She is trained in both classical and contemporary voice; yet her tone remains unrefined.
In 2016 Deandra Dey received a Demo Recording Grant from Factor Canada and with this funding has released her debut EP “Letters”. Deandra Dey now releases her new single “Take it Easy” which bodes folky tones, groovy beats and silky vocals. You can find Deandra's music on Itunes, CD Baby and Spotify!
