Roadblocks, haters, difficulties, disappointments, and failure inspired
Cerritos, CA (PRWEB) April 13, 2011
Bryson Legacy Records artist Deja Bryson's debut single "Move Along" will be released today, and will be available for downloading on Bandcamp (http://www.dejabryson.bandcamp.com), and iTunes in two weeks. "Move Along," which Bryson wrote and co-produced, sends a message of leaving the past in the past, with unapologetic empowerment.
"Roadblocks, haters, difficulties, disappointments, and failure inspired "Move Along," Deja said in a recent interview. "You can knock this through those hard times when you lack confidence, drive and ambition. It is also a 'swag' song. Something you can turn on and chant to shut-up all your hater when they forget how dope you are."
"Move Along" is from her upcoming project, "The Revolution," an EP, which is a collection of brand new live music recorded with live instruments. It is a fusion of R & B, rock and soul. Revolution is due to be released this summer.
Deja Bryson is no stranger to the stage, appearing at the "hot spot" music venues all over the Bay Area as well as hot spots in Los Angeles, Dallas, Washington, D.C and New York. She has had several performances and hosted events featuring many well-known artists and industry elites. She has performed the National Anthem at NBA games with Golden State Warriors, Phoenix Suns, and Washington Wizards as well as at colleges and for the United States Air Force. Deja was a featured artist at one of the 2009-2010 inaugural balls in Washington, DC. She performed at a special tribute to Della Reese in Los Angeles and has graced the stages at Foxxhole (Jamie Foxx), R & B Live in Hollywood, and Yoshi's in Oakland, CA.
Deja began singing at the age of four, and seriously pursued her musical career following high school. When asked about her music influences, Deja remarks, "Music is always a reaction to other music, to the era we live in, to our culture, to pleasure and pain. Artistically, I love the Isley's, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Mary J. Blige, usher and Jay-Z. These artists possess a miraculous quality that allows them to effortlessly connect to people. It's evoked in every song and peformance. It's that special quality that pulled me in and enticed."
However, Deja is more influenced by Kobe Bryant than any singer. She says, "He represents the highest tier of work ethic. In addition to that, he has all the winning qualities: fearlessness, confidence, respect, and appreciation and love for his craft. Kobe is number 1 in her world when speaking of inspiration."
So, download 'Move Along" and look forward to "The Revolution."
