"Anything good that can happen will happen. It might sound like a cliché, but I think the statement fits my optimistic personality perfectly. I also strive for that flavor of positive energy to come across in my music," says jazz pianist DEEMS.
One good listen to this artist's incredible music will take the listener on a rhythm ride through a myriad of modern emotions and sensual pleasures that DEEMS promises will soothe your soul.
"My music is accessible to most people because it's not harsh or frantic. It's a smooth groove, a style of music that comes across peaceful and makes you feel good."
DEEMS has established himself internationally as a distinctive and imaginative writer, arranger, producer and bandleader, as well as explosive solo pianist. With his roots planted firmly in an Asian American upbringing, DEEMS' music has evolved into a delectable blend of R&B, pop and mainstream jazz that he calls "contemporary soul jazz."
The versatile and charismatic Seattle native has just released his fourth album, DEEMS PLAYS FOR LOVERS. "The grooves and melodies are silky smooth. It's the romantic interlude that lovers dream of," says DEEMS.
