A GREAT REVIEW of "Dream of You" by SKOPE MAGAZINE ON FEB. 9, 2016!


I'D LIKE TO GIVE A BIG THANKS to MIKE FRIEDMAN of SKOPE MAGAZINE For This STELLAR REVIEW of my NEW ALBUM "DREAM OF YOU" WHICH RELEASES This FEBRUARY- (available to Fans on Feb. 12, 2016)!!

DeDe – ‘Dream of You’

“Dream of You” is an album full of joy. Lyrically the songs are optimistic and sunny. Her songs focus on the future that helps people move forward, as hercombination of storytelling and hope feel particularly satisfying. Arrangements are meticulous. Stylistically “Dream of You” effortlessly blends together elements offolk, country, and rock into a colorful whole. By far the highlight is DeDe’s deeply reassuring voice guiding the way. DeDe displays a careful knack for the perfect melody, as these are songs that linger in the mind long after they are over. Theattention to detailsong structure, even the gradual build-up, is absolutely astounding.

With the title track “Dream of You”, DeDe starts the song off on a quiet note. Elegantly executed string work introduces the song. DeDe’s voice takes command of the song as it gradually comes into bloom. Towards the end of the song all that remains is a spectacular soaring guitar which brings the song to a comforting close. Opting for a languid tempo is the hushed whispers of “Prime of Life”. Lyrically the song focuses on truly reaching one’s stride. Powerful and moving, “Stronger” possesses an impeccably crafted melody. Warm and soothing, the song’s driving rhythm helps to reinforce its sense of purpose. By far the highlight of the album is the intimate love song “My Unsung Hero” where everything simply works, from the affectionate lyrics to the nimble country rhythm.

A unique voice in the musical universe, DeDe’s “Dream of You” is full of gorgeous pop gems.

DeDe Wedekind's NEW Album "Dream of You" releases in Feb 2016!

Well, thanks to my friend and Editor in Chief at #WebHost Magazine & #Indie #Music Magazine (http://indiemusicmagazine.live/2016/02/06/dede/)  Randy Lockhart, there's sure
a lot to be thankful for! This is what he posted about me on 3 of his Indie Music Websites today (thanks Randy!):

DeDe Wedekind, or just “DeDe” as she goes by for music, is an award-winning singer/songwriter from Houston, Texas. DeDe won Song of the Year at the 2015 IMEA AWARDS in Atlanta this past October for her new single “Stronger” from her upcoming album, Dream of You. Dream of You is DeDe’s highly anticipated 4th album, which will be released on Feb 12, 2016.

For her new album, which has been almost 2 years in the making, DeDe’s been songwriting with Los Angeles-based Multi-Platinum Producer & Songwriter, Kevin DeClue (Hillary Duff, Charlie Midnight & Rihanna). DeDe wrote or co-wrote all the songs on Dream of You.

DeDe's Music Featured on Pages 30-39 of the February 2016 Indie Music Coalition Magazine!

DeDe:  An Artist In her Prime-Ahead of Her Time by Beth Fedornak

At the October, 2015 International Music & Entertainment Awards (http://www.IMEAawards.com), we had the pleasure of hearing 2014 Two-time Album of the Year winner & 2015 Song of the Year winner, DeDe Wedekind, perform her Folk Song of the Year Nominee, “Prime of Life from her upcoming album Dream of You.  But her Song of the Year Category win that night was for her Adult Contemporary original, “Stronger”.

What sets this talented artist apart from others is not only her great vocals, which garnered her Best Vocalist in March 2014 on SingerUniverse.com, but her unique & versatile songwriting.  DeDe writes songs that cross many genres of music including: Adult Contemporary, Folk, Pop, Country-Pop, Rock, Americana, Singer/Songwriter, World Music, Jazz and Inspirational.   This was evident when at the 2014 IMEA Award Show she received 9 nominations in 7 different categories (the most of any IMEA Artist).


And indeed she was a winner: she went to the stage to accept a grand total of 3 IMEA awards that chilly October Night in Kentucky for: AC Album of the Year for Love & Fairy Tales (7/2013), Holiday Album of the Year for World of Christmas (11/2013), and Song of the Year for “Canon on the Lord’s Prayer”. This tied DeDe with friend and singer/songwriter Matthew Huff, Country Artist of the Year who also won 3 awards, the most awards won by any artists at the show. Says DeDe about this honor:


       “We were all rooting for each other, all of us Indie artists who had been hanging in there, writing songs like crazy, and performing all over the place… in a very tough, sometimes brutal industry. I’d just joined the IMEA because it sounded like a worthwhile organization for indie artists-and it is. The rest was about timing: I decided to submit a bunch of songs from my 2 albums I’d just released in 2013 on a whim-thinking “what the hec”? I have all these new songs, and maybe these judges will like one of them?  But getting that many nominations, and that kind of real support and recognition for my music, well, that was only surpassed by getting to meet and know all of these other great indie artists from around the world- (struggling!) artists who were a lot like me. It was truly a watershed moment for my songwriting, and it was a life-changing and pivotal moment for me and my music career.”

 Growing up near Houston, she hails from a long line of actors, storytellers and musicians on her father's Welsh side.  She is one of seven musical children from an exceptionally creative family.  DeDe herself is a classically-trained singer, pianist and flutist.  While she had pursued music on a part-time basis in her 20’s and early 30’s after a career in marketing, she came to realize that music was coming back into her life. Only about 7 years ago, DeDe started singing songs around the house that she’d never heard before, and started having dreams about music. It was at that moment she realized that her true calling was to pursue a more active role as a songwriter and musician.  She decided to hone her theory, performing and songwriting by returning to college for additional musical training. With the support of husband, Larry, she began to pursue music again full-time.

DeDe tells stories through her music: her original songs are about her feelings, her life, her personal thoughts, joys, losses, hopes, dreams and experiences. She feels that she has a calling: a gift for relating her music & melodies to what we all are experiencing in our real lives. “At first it was really scary for me to step out on a limb and try to start a new career in a field where I’m definitely not an expert. But I'm not afraid anymore," says DeDe. "Not afraid to say the things that I feel need to be said, and to take a chance with my music. I've found my joy, my purpose, and my peace." 


Her latest album, Dream of You, is unique in that it tells the story of the emotions, struggles, triumphs and the journey that is DeDe’s life.  However, it’s not a blow-by-blow recounting of each and every major life event, but rather a playbook of dreams, hopes, and feelings, both positive and negative. Its full of thought-provoking lyrics: observations about the changes she’s been through, and all the emotions and relationships along the way that defined the life-shaping moments in her life.  Each song is autobiographical and details actual feelings and thoughts she had about events and experiences: songs about her dreams, hopes, disappointments and relationships that are all a part of what has made her who she is. 


Every listener will be able to relate to DeDe’s dynamic and word-picture filled lyrics, since her songs tell the story of events that happen to us all. Songs that encompass the dreams of youth (Dream of You), the wild times and struggles of growing up & looking for love, such as we find in her 80’s Bon-Jovi like rock tribute: Leaning on Heaven.  We relate to her searches for acceptance and meaning in life via Prime of Life, and the rush of sexual attraction and thrill of romantic love in DeDe’s super-sexy, Latin bossa nova, Recipe of Love. Then it all unravels with her Rolling Stones-esque Sell Me Out about complete betrayal of trust, heartbreak, and being left all alone. And in the end- redemption: finding the strength to get through anything with “Stronger”, and the capacity to know and be able to give true love (Love Lives On, with Andrew Fromm on piano, writer of N-Sync’s Millenium Album). 

Through the many challenges and experiences DeDe ‘s faced personally and in her music, she finally feels equipped to accept herself and her circumstances, understand the real meaning of love, and what truly matters in life. Important things like: relationships with family and friends, finding unconditional love (My Unsung Hero), a solid marriage (Today I’ll Marry My Friend), and the realization that she is comfortable with where her life has lead her.  She has also discovered how to overcome fears and the renewed ability to believe in yourself and in the one(s) you love.
