Deanne has been performing professionally since the age of 10, and scored early
success in the 1980's with a major recording contract with Warner Brothers, and
becoming a regular part of the TISWAS team alongside Chris Tarrant.
Featuring heavily on the ITV 1980's revival of the 50's rock & roll show "Jack
Good's Oh Boy!", some Saturday TV scheduling seemed to be dominated by the still
teenage performer, as she would appear live on TISWAS in the morning, and again
in the evening on 'Oh Boy!'.
When her first single was released in September 1980, TV promotions meant that
she would sometimes pop up on afternoon scheduling too! ....And she was still at
From then on, Deanne has worked consistently in the music industry, in various
bands, and also as a solo artist, both as a performer, and also as a writer.
Performing has taken her worldwide, including the USA and the Middle East,
punctuated by a stint in London's West End, a brief Eurovision Song Contest
experience, and an even briefer spell as a temporary half of 80's pop duo
In the 90's, Deanne performed alongside Paul Young and George Michael
at the latter's 30th Birthday party, and also worked on original
material with Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet.
Deanne's distinctive voice and her versatile 4 ½ octave range has also been heard over the years on both
Television and Radio worldwide, whether it be as a featured guest
vocalist on a trendy club anthem, cat food commercial, or radio
In fact, her gutsy vocal performance on a popular African anti-malaria tablet
campaign is almost an industry classic!
Deanne also plays guitar, saxophone and keyboards, playing all for
several years in the touring band for comedian Brian Conley. However,
music theory is her 'thing', and she will 'have a bash' at playing
just about anything. Over the last few years, she has even been called
upon to play both violin and cello for various studio
recordings....but never at the same time!
Along with a her longtime writing partner, Deanne enjoys spending time
composing original material for other artists. Major publishing
companies in Los Angeles have already signed many of their songs. They
also compose for music libraries, and corporate clients, almost
exclusively for the US market. With her own state-of-the-art recording
studio, she also enjoys all aspects of remixing, mastering, and
post-production opportunities that come along. This usually means
being able to work whilst still in her pyjamas! Perfect.
