VOCALIST & ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Dee has been part of our local jazz scene since the late 1970s where she frequently performed at Edmonds Community College, Soundsation Jazz Camp and at this festival. She has always been a favorite of students and directors. They kept requesting to have her come back because they loved how she cared about them and took a personal interest in each person to be the best they could be, no matter what they chose to do in life.
When looking for an Artistic Director for the DeMiero Jazz Fest several years ago, our board members unanimously requested Dee.
Pianist, vocal coach, actress, composer, arranger, Dee is a singer who sings the story.
Whether accompanying herself at the piano, fronting a trio, big band or symphony, Dee’s musical career is as varied as her four-octave vocal range is thrilling. She is a unique talent who transcends musical borders as she brings her jazz styling, infused with gospel roots and blues flavoring, to the stage.
We are so very honored to have Dee continue to serve as our Artistic Director and so pleased to have her perform again as a featured guest artist.
