PRESENTED BY ERIN FITZSIMON
Self-styled and self-taught, independence is what sets Deena apart from the rest. Born in Japan to a Taiwanese mother and an Irish father, her musical influences are as eclectic as her cultural upbringing – Johnny Cash, KT Tunstall and Jeff Buckley.
Having only started playing music three years ago, Deena has already achieved much success and is seen as a seasoned performer. For her two albums ‘Lone Wolf’ and ‘Black Cat’ she completed a national tour, a string of festival dates and played shows in the USA, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Japan.
With the help of a fully-fledged band behind her, Deena’s sound is bigger, grittier and darker than ever diving deeper into the direction of indie blues-rock. The band comprises of Joe Fallon, Jasper Gundersen and Jack Walton, who have all lent their unique talents to chisel a darker tone to Deena’s previous releases without compromising her dulcet voice – a voice that transmits raw, intense emotion.
Her breathy vocal may seem full of innocence but don’t let it fool you, it can turn in an instant into a commanding powerhouse… Deena shows herself a force to be reckoned with, in every way, and definitely one to watch. – Paul Smith, Sydney Morning Herald (Rating: 4/5)
Deena takes hold of the blues like she’s born to it, smacks it in the face and brings it to life – Sally Browne, Courier Mail (Rating: 4/5)
Her voice was alternately haunting and soulful, strong and vulnerable. – Georgina Mitchell, Newcastle Herald
This fresh approach is just what the indie music industry has been calling for and there is no doubt that Deena has delivered. – Scott Thurlow, Traxx Radio
