Ah Spring! DeDe's March Madness & Other News...

Hi there!
Wow's Spring's really sprung here in Houston and the weather's finally sunny, warm & beautiful! How are things in your little corner of the world?

Been thinking about and writing lots of ideas & songs lately. My album's releasing fall 2015, and I'm leaning towards calling it "Leaning on Heaven", (get it?:)!  Been working on some new thought-provoking lyrics and cool new melodies... and a very exciting new writing collab with friend & producer, Kevin deClue. Kevin's written with Jewel & Hillary Duff among many others, and I love his work!  And speaking of music and lyrics, I think that this production will include some of my best, most original work so far. Here's a small sample from one of my upcoming songs about the stages of life we go thru and looking back as well as forward...Prime of Life, (copyright 2014 by DeDe :)

Might have took some time
To get me to this place,
When I look in the mirror
These changes I see,
So hard to embrace.
Yesterday was spring
Came so easily,
Now summer’s just a memory...

In the prime of life 
Once again the seasons start to change....

Anyways, I hope you'll enjoy hearing the final version as much as I did writing it...We got the vocals tracked in LA a few weeks ago and things are sounding good so far; and the great Joey Vallone's on guitar.

Below are some upcoming area events and news:

My original song The Plans I Have for You, is about having such a deep love for someone that you want to care for them, protect and cherish them forever.  Reaching out to them to make sure they have a good future with hope and encouragement. Like God's amazing love or the deeply devoted love a parent has for their child...
