Deena

Two years after the release of her debut album, Lone Wolf, Brisbane-based Deena returns with a new single, Cupid. Stepping away from her acoustic-folk sound—and with the help of a fully-fledged band behind her—Deena has dived head-first into a new musical direction of indie blues-rock. Her sound is bigger, grittier and darker than ever.

With her sophomore album, Black Cat, released in February 2015, Deena collaborated with Yanto Browning (Art of Sleeping, Jac Stone), Brendan O’Neill (Big Scary, Saskwatch) and Graham Ritchie (Holy Holy, Emma Louise), who have all lent their unique talents to chisel a darker tone without compromising Deena’s dulcet voice—a voice that transmits raw, intense emotion.

Self-styled and self-taught, independence is what sets Deena apart from the rest. Born in Japan to a Taiwanese mother and an Irish father, her musical influences are as eclectic as her cultural upbringing: Johnny Cash, KT Tunstall and Jeff Buckley.

Having started her musical journey only two years ago, Deena is already a seasoned performer. For Lone Wolf she completed she toured Australia, USA, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Indonesia. With Black Cat she took the album to Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia and around Australia receiving great reviews from national press.
