DEDE is a vocalist, DJ, and visual director from Los Angeles. She arrived on the scene as the voice of the genre-defying trio, Tiny Hearts (alongside producers Waajeed & Tim K). Tiny Hearts made major waves throughout the music scene – making their radio debut on Benji B’s BBC Radio 1 show, streaming their EP release show with Boiler Room, playing alongside SZA at Miami’s Art Basel, and garnering the praise of Donald Glover and various DJs & tastemakers worldwide along the way.
In the spring of 2017, DEDE announced she had signed as a solo artist to the forward- thinking Fresh Selects record label, with the Pitchfork premiere of her first single, “Faultline” – a duet with Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear, produced by Kingdom of Fade To Mind. Stereogum called the track “a dreamy, dreary ballad — bleak but beautiful, pained and pulsing” and Pigeons & Planes named it one of The Best Songs Of The Month.
Her second single "Golden Divine" (featured heavily in James Franco's film "King Cobra") had its premiere on LA's KCRW. DEDE’s debut album "PANOPLY" was released in November of 2017 on Fresh Selects and she performed the album at her release shows in London, NYC and LA.
DEDE is also a DJ (as DEDE BIRD) and has played at venues like Soho House, ACE Hotel DTLA, hClub Hollywood, Apotheke, SFT SRV SUNDAYS at Resident DTLA, Short Stop, Club Tee Gee, brand events for Illesteva, OSEA Malibu, Mano Walker, etc., as well as holds monthly residencies at Gold Diggers (including her popular vaudeville party “JUDY”) and at El Dorado DTLA. She’s also guest DJ’d on Dublab Radio, Le Mellotron Radio Paris, RINSE FM and Soul Circle Radio.
