Bio

With a full five octave vocal range, show-stopping stage presence, a catalog of original recordings stretching around the corner and recent collaborations with some of the world's hottest producers Dezmond Meeks aka "Cinderfella" has been working consistently to make his own fairytale come true one step at a time! From his humble beginnings in Louisiana as a prominent-prodigy gospel musician/vocalist Dezmond soon gained influences ranging from Michael & Prince to Mariah, James Brown, Aretha, The Clark Sisters, Kim Burrell and more! After two previous EP releases his self titled debut full length album "Cinderfella" has already been nominated for a slew of Music Industry Awards including "Best Male Pop Artist", "Best Pop Album" and "Album of The Year" at the Los Angeles Music Awards, Winner of "Best R&B Song" at the 2013 Independent Music Awards and "Best R&B Artist" at the AIMA's to name a few. Clearly "The Prince of Soul" shows no signs of slowing down! Legendary founder of Motown Records Berry Gordy was once quoted saying "If I were still in charge of Motown today, I'd sign him right now!"

Noted as Mariah Carey's personal favorite pick for America's Got Talent Season 6 and having had success on American Idol Season 4, the now Award Winning Recording Artist has stepped out onto the main stage with his debut album release combining elements of Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop and Electronic/Dance to create a truly dynamic work of art! As a true believer in organic instrumentation and a lover of high energy dance presentation, Dezmond Meeks is also a skilled/gifted musician (piano & Hammond B-3 organ being his first instrument) and live dancer specializing in tap, jazz & lyrical ballet. Success was soon proved well thru the fusion of Electronic/Soul when his collaboration "Celebrate" with budding EDM Stars Ghøstkick quickly rose to top 10 on Korea's Olleh Chart in 2012. In addition to a new smash electronic single with Dutch DJ K-Waster & Chris Willis, known for writing hit after hit with David Guetta, in February of 2013 Dezmond signed with long time producers Joey Sykes, Fabrizio Grossi & veteran music industry manager Terry Lippman to break new ground by utilizing original arrangements with a dynamic 50 piece Orchestra/WALL OF SOUND creating a magically unique package around the already impressively polished live entertainer.
