Local folk-pop artist DEON has been invited to play at the prestigious Canadian Music Week 2013 this 21st March. Part of the crop of talents taking their music into foreign ground, DEON will be representing Singapore alongside local bands Inch Chua, The Sam Willows and Eli T.
Culminating with a fund-raiser at Beer Market on 3rd March 2013, the former winner of the Noise Singer-Songwriter 2011 competition and Berklee College of Music alumni will debut new songs on his hometown tour, and raise funds to make his dream of Canadian Music Week a possibility.
Charged with emotionally tuned lyrics and a lush, melodic sensibility, DEON’s songwriting explores the confines of love and life, elucidating its complexities with a voice informed in equal parts by earnestness and humility.
