Dionne's Music World

A native of Dallas, Texas, music is the essence of Dionne’s being and has been since she was a little girl, as she states, “I wake up every morning singing—whether I’m excited, furious, confused or whatever else I might feel. There is music in my head, coming out of me all of the time.” This notion also illustrates her upbringing being surrounded by music which eventually steered her in the direction to attend the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (also known as Arts Magnet), where former incomparable alums, singer Norah Jones and Erykah Badu attended. She has applied everything she learned at Arts Magnet along with her professional musical experience, by honing her craft vocally and through songwriting, with her EP “Living In The Music” which debuted #1 on Amazon’s soul charts in 2010. The EP received consistent radio rotation on more than 20 radio and internet stations in both the U.S. and International markets. Her sound was recognized by those in the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan. This milestone is what has catapulted Dionne to create a new album that represents her journey as a singer by encompassing her signature “soulful feel”.


Helium, which in relevance means expanding the possibilities – is the focal point for creating this album. As Dionne states, "That's what this project is doing for me personally and musically. It pushed me to extend myself.  My first project was an experiment of being 'unrealistic' and 'living in the music' that brought surprising dividends. With Helium, I'm maneuvering this musical hot air balloon to all the places I want to go, and also trusting it to guide in concert with the Universe.”  Helium, showcases an array of songs including her lead single Swim Around (produced by Ty Macklin), a sultry track filled with chromatic strings that filters the navigation to the unveiling of the storyline sung eloquently by Dionne. “I hope it inspires people to see their challenges and move through them,” says Dionne. Another song on the album Boomerang incorporates influences from 70’s funk and disco pulsations. The intro of the baseline, played by Kevin Arthur captivates this retro feel. A song that provides the epitome of Dionne’s growth is Fully, a spiritual innovative song that represents Dionne’s evolution with connecting with the spiritual elements that surround her. Dionne reflects on this moment with writing the lyrics to this song by stating, “When I began writing, I thought about the euphoria love produces, and as I continued I felt like I could physically touch everything: grass, ants, mountain tops, and people everywhere.”  For the traditional R&B enthusiasts, Love You (produced by David P. Stevens), is a ballad that showcases Dionne’s vocal range and regal sound in compliment to the melodic phrasing throughout the song.


The album will be available on Amazon, iTunes and Dionne will perform songs from the album at her Album Release Concert debut in Dallas, Saturday, June 28th, held at the Bishop Arts Center – 215 South Tyler St., Dallas, TX, 75208. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 day of show. For more information about the new album, EPK, and tour dates, please visit:
