Inspiration, meets Jazz, Rock, Blues and a whole lot of Godly soul. I am a singer, avid songwriter, lyricist of many styles. Written for County Town singers, Distress Center's Walk for Suicide, Emilio Zarris etc. My mission: music to rock, groove, and heal you with positive lyrics and tasty vibe.

Biography

Singer, Songwriter, Deidrey François began writing music at the age of seven and began performing her own music on the realization that ‘life’s shackles’ could not keep her from her childhood dreams. She encompasses the raw emotion of hurt, the bliss of love and thankful praise in her music. Her voice is soothing and exquisite and carried with effortless ease. Her lyrics can take you from playful drama to touching the deepest part of your soul. Especially demonstrated in her inspirational music. "I really like it when people cry, it's not only a great compliment, providing they don't run screaming NO NOT HER AGAIN!, but when they truly cry because you have touched them."

Her personality exudes in her music. The playful tease of Jazz and Swing, the melancholy and dry humor of the blues, the soulfulness of Gospel that seems to speak to your own personal life’s journey.

My music is not typical Gospel by any means, I have broken out of the tradition of Southern Gospel and ventured into the contemporary by fusing many styles together and I also refuse to believe that I have to be categorized as one style over another. The beauty about true songwriters is that every song can be different and sometimes on polar opposites but it's All Good!

“I know I must be guided by Spirit because all these songs flow so easily, I never doubt the lyrics or the melody when it comes to me.” Deidrey won't stop writing "I don't want to stop really but it would be nice if the song came when I'm sitting at the table instead of on the can or in the shower. There is only so much you can write with soap on the shower walls".

Deidrey has performed with the Brian Rose little Big Band, The County Town Singers Choral in Whitby and at Various Churches, including the Unity Churches etc.

Wife and Mother to three young wonderful kids(well sometimes they drive her coo coo!) , she admits that most of her songs are written in the noise and chaos of any parents day.(actually this is an understatement: It's like a zoo most of the time and I spend most of my time running around trying to find a quiet spot to quickly record my song before it disappears out of my head and before my kids find me...Its like MUSICAL HIDE AND SEEK!) “I have no choice, and God knows that, so the messages in my songs, come with deliberate intent and are very specific.” Deidrey has the exceptional ability to create custom songs based on the needs of that particular person. From heart wrenching, tear provoking Mother’s Day “ Mother’s Love” to the Special Requests of Joyous Weddings “Heaven”.

Deidrey has written songs for the Walk for Suicide Awareness, The County Town Singers Chorale, Performing Artist Emilio Zarris, Translated songs and created lyrics for Ukrainian Composer Natalia Kolacz and others.

Deidrey released her Debut CD “Spirit in Bloom”, a new inspirational CD. It is an experience of wonder and soulful musical adventure.

Lyrics

Rain Down

Written By: Deidrey Francois

Rain Down

Open your eyes Open your mind
Be ready to receive God has got you in mind
Open your ears , Make a change in your life
It’s your time to prosper, there’s no need for strife

Do you know what it takes?
Do you know what God needs?
You’ve got to be willing to give
If you want to receive

Chorus:
Love, peace rain down
Health joy rain down
Wealth abundance rain down
Rain Down ,:] Rain Down

Open your heart, Let God’s power unfold
It’s bounty aplenty and riches untold
Awaken your soul, Feel the change in your life
God’s wealth is yours, There’s no need for strife

Do you know what it takes?
Do you know what God needs?
You’ve got to be willing to give
If you want to receive Chorus:

Bridge:
Joy, Rain Down
Peace, Rain Down
Lord let your, love Rain Down

Let your riches, Rain Down Chorus 3x

Wishing for a Lifetime

Written By: Deidrey Francois

I'll hold your hand
When the light's gone from within
I'll hold you close
When you're lost in the wind
And if you've close your eyes
And kissed the world goodbye
Know that I am here to keep your candle burning bright

Chorus: Wishing for a lifetime to hear your voice again
Wishing for a lifetime to see you smile again
Wishing for a lifetime to say I love you over and over again
Wishing for a lifetime!

Vs. 2 I'll dry your tears
When you heart is breaking
I'll soothe your fears
When your soul is aching
And if you've close your eyes
And kissed the world goodbye
Know that I am here to keep your candle burning bright

Chorus:
Bridge: All I have is now, Now to say I love you
All I have in now, Now to show I need you
I love you, I need you ChorusX2:

You are a Star

Written By: Deidrey

You are a star

Every second every minute of time
Is a chance to discover to open your mind
Take a minute its time to define
What you are meant to do
Who are you meant to be

Take it slowly, be the best you can be
Doesn’t matter who you are
Doesn’t matter what you do
Cause every breath is another opportunity

Chorus:

You are a star within
Be true to yourself and you’ll always win
You are the brightest star that I’ve ever seen
Take all that you are, imagine and you will go far

Your imagination, it has no limitation
Every path is your path to creation
Thank the heavens, all your cards are in line
Do what you’re meant to do
Be who you’re meant to be

Take it slowly, be the best you can be
Doesn’t matter who you are
Doesn’t matter what you do
Cause every breath is another opportunity

Chorus

Heaven

Written By: Deidrey Francois

Midnight Slumber, Lying here in your arms tonight.
Smile on my lips, Twinkle in my eye
Sparkle from corner to corner, while I smile
Oooh My whole world is in heaven

Midnight Slumber, Here love gets its chance to surrender.
Faithful hearts, thoughts align
Blissful dance of love heart to heart, pulse to pulse
ooooh my whole world is in heaven.

Heaven sings your sweet music
Serenade my mind
My heart is in the chorus
Rejoice my love this is true romance

Heaven sings your sweet music
Serenade my mind
My heart is in the chorus
Yes we are, yes we are,
Yes we are in Heaven

Yes this is, Yes this is,
Yes this is Heaven

Yes we are, Yes this is,
Oooo Heaven.

Start Living

Written By: Deidrey Francois

Start Living

Are you scared and alone in the dark
A passenger in your life, claimed nothing as your own
Are you lonely, closed the door to the world
Seen it all unfold and time has passed you by
Don’t be afraid, Trust the voice in your heart
My gift to you is peace and happiness

Chorus:
Just start living , Start loving
Take the chance, See what life’s about
Just start living, the time is now
Just start living, Take control and live life now

VS.2. Are you unwell , Do you wear all life’s scars
Forgotten how to smile and lost in your sorrow
Has your heart been broken, think love’s just a word
Forgiven everyone, but can’t forgive yourself
Don’t be afraid, Love’s not far away
My gift to you is love and tenderness

Chorus

My gift to you is peace
My gift to you is love
My gift to you is life
