Deidre’s music is contemporary country that is highly influenced with a bluesy-pop/rock fusion. She has co-written five out of the six songs from her first Nashville-produced six song EP, ‘Dallas.’ She has the undeniable ability to connect with her audience, but her greatest strength is her belief in herself. It is that belief that exudes through, not only her writing, but her live performances.
Although born and raised in Texas, she knew Nashville was the end goal, but it was the “how and when” that would soon be determined. She went on to college, but her heart was in writing and putting together her live shows, taking vocal cues from music’s biggest vocalists like Whitney Houston, Patsy Cline, Martina McBride and Miranda Lambert, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt and mastering performance skills through careful study of videos from Cher, Madonna, Shania Twain and Reba.
In 2013 as one of five National finalists in the Texaco Country Showdown, Deidre landed on the Ryman Auditorium stage.
Ultimately, Deidre made the move to Music City in the summer of 2015, immersing herself in the town’s talent pool and setting up co-writes. She already knew Nashville producer, Jacob Rice, who produced all of her songs from the ‘Dallas’ EP. Despite much talent-driven success, Deidre’s work ethic, fearlessness and belief in herself remain some of her most powerful attributes.
“Miranda Lambert is the perfect example. She works hard. She came in third in Nashville Star, moved home, wrote song after song, got herself a game plan, got her business together and came back to Nashville to pitch her material – which again, is a vulnerable place to be. She has never been afraid to put herself out there, stay reinvent, stay fresh for her audience... In a lot of ways I’m much the same. I understand that success as a touring artist doesn’t happen overnight – This is why I work so hard at it every day. But I choose to believe it will happen.”
