Tell us about yourself and your music
I am Music!!!! Music Literally Saved my Life. I remember I was 12 years old and unfortunately I was being molested. I would go into the barn located in the back of our home. I would sing loud and hard it seems like when I did that. Every emotion that I felt at that time would literally disappear, I felt Free!!!
Talk to us more about your latest release
I wanted to make music that when people listened to it they could relate. So if you noticed every Song is literally a Story that uplifts your Spirit!!!
I call them “SOUL SHOTS!
What inspired you to write this release?
WoW! great question. I was in the middle of a divorce. My ex-husband had cheated on me and actually beat me up real bad one night. So I sang my pain away!
Like I said earlier, music saved my life!
Describe the writing and recording process
I write all of my music. So when I go to the studio I know how I would like it to sound. I will stay all night if I have to, to get the message incorporated into the song that I would like to express to my fans.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes, later this year I will release tour dates and the cities that I plan to travel to. I am very excited to hit the road again.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
Two words, Hard-Hitting music and I have my own signature style. I think when you love what you do people see and literally feel it!
Who have you been listening to lately?
I love listening to Lauren Daigle her unique voice is Amazing.
Who are your biggest influences?
No doubt the Late and Great Mahalia Jackson. When she sang it pierced their Souls.
Tell us about your passions
I love singing, preaching, teaching and writing. Helping reach our youth in a positive manner. I am also a chef with seasonings on Walmart.com so I enjoy cooking. And last looking at a great movie and eating popcorn with lots of butter.
What else is happening next in your world?
I will be releasing another Ep in the next two weeks. I have been working really hard to give my fans the best version of me!
Thanks for an awesome interview, Apostle Deanna Dixon
