ABOUT

Hi, I'm in Houston, and I was Indie Music Channel's BEST NEW ARTIST of the Year 2016 and IMEA Best Adult Contemporary Americana Artist of the Year in 2018!! My latest album Dream of You won ALBUM of the YEAR and I have 2 past ALBUMS of the Year from 2014 & 20154!! I'm an award winning songwriter and singer (One of the "Top in Houston"-Houston Press), but I also sing a lot of COVERS. Country, Americana/Folk, pop, southern rock, blues, & jazz standards. Looking to join a Gigging Working BAND, DUO OR TRIO that does 2-4 gigs a month. OR a great pianist with or without a professional level guitar or bass player, who can maybe sing some for a vocal/instrumental duo or trio. Love harmonies and won BEST VOCALIST on SingerUniverse in 2014 Had a band, but don't like running things, so looking to JOIN a solid pro-level band or an acoustic duo or trio- no rap, metal, or hip hop.

I like to rehearse about once a week (sometimes take a week or two off about every few months depending on upcoming gigs, tours & music requirements). My music plays on the radio across the US, I have 4 albums and eventually want to tour. You don't have to be able to tour, but some travel would be good. Ear playing and and/or charts a must, as well as knowing how to play with stems...I do covers mostly, and some originals depending on whether it's a wedding reception, concert, restaurant or festival. Some places I've played: SXSW Austin 2016 and New Orleans House of Blues 2015, Tasting Rooms, Kemah Boardwalk, & Birraporetti's Downtown Houston.

I have around 100K fans worldwide and about 10K in the Houston Texas area. I can get fans and people to gigs!

Serious inquiries and musicians only please. All the best to you! DeDe :) .DeDeWedekind

EQUIPMENT

I have basic good quality equipment: 5 mics, stands, and 4 Yamaha/JBL 200-400 amp speakers. If you have your own sound that's a plus. I expect folks I perform with to have good vocal and instrumental mic(s) and stands, along with amps and good equipment for guitar and keys, and also sing some backups or lead vocals, that is unless you seriously can't sing but you are an awesome player. :)
