Desney Bailey

Native New Yorker, Desney Bailey is well known in the European NuJazz, Neo Soul and ClubHouse scene. Her past works with Jazzanova, Deampyert, and The 9:30 Collective, just to name a few, and the continuing productions from producers Oliver Marquardt aka DJ Jauche (Machomovers), Daniel Paul (Slope), are played across Europe, Japan and the USA. Her love for Jazz, keeps her busy, in the Berlin circut, where she performs with the popular composer/pianist Helmut Bruger and his trio. She performs with DJ's and Soundsystems across Europe or with her six piece band with top musicians from the USA and Germany. Her debut album “Meant To Be” made with Berlin based producer Oliver Marquardt aka DJ Jauche, was released on Royal Flame Music. Together they wrote and produced a selection of neosoulful songs full with love, spirt and affection.The single, If You Want My Love, from Daniel Paul (Slope) is a extra treat among the 13 songs.

“Desney Bailey war mir bisher lediglich als Gastsängerin von Produktionen des Berliner Labels Sonar Kollektiv.Dort veredelte sie mit ihrer sanften,souligen Stimme den ein oder anderen Track von Jazzanova, Slope oder Deyampert.Ihr nun vorliegendes Solodebüt ist ebenfalls im Schnittbereich von Jazz, Soul und Housemusic angesiedelt und entstand in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Produzenten und DJ Oliver Marquardt aka DJ Jauche/DJ Jackflash.Liebhabern der bereits oben erwähnten Künstler dürfte dieses Album durchaus entgegenkommen.Die 12 Tracks sind allesamt gefühlvoller und entspannter Downtempo-Soul,der die einschlägigen Bars und Cafés in den kommenden Monaten wieder soft beschallen wird.Erinnert die gebürtige New Yorkerin stimmlich schon sehr an ihre weltbekannten Kolleginnen Sade oder Aretha Franklin.Zwar gewinnen die Lieder im Gesamtbild an Eigenständigkeit, Ein paar mehr Ecken und Kanten hätten daher sicherlich gutgetan.” Karsten Kraemer - Musicheadquaters internet music magazine
