Can't wait to see how 2021 unfolds for you, Deuandra!! We are ready!!
Hi Deuandra! Thanks for being here today!
Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I’m from Arizona born and raised and I’m still here! I settled in LA for a little bit to explore acting but Arizona’s my home.
Who has been your greatest influence?
Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Brandy, and Aaliyah were huge influences for me. I love the way Beyoncé changes her voice throughout the years.
My mother is also a huge inspiration for me. She was a singer back in the day and used to sing backup for Diana Ross at Super Bowl 30 in Phoenix, Arizona. I grew up around music all the time so it was just natural for me to continue down that path. My mom is the one who encouraged me to model and act. I enjoyed being in front of a camera so much that I thought to myself “I want to make my own stories.” In high school, I took up Media Communications, learned about editing short videos being in the control room & wrote for my high school newspaper as the movie critic. I later received my Bachelors of Arts Degree in Film Production in 2010 and started making independent movies on my own. I’m grateful to my mom for introducing my brother and I to amazing music and encouraging us in the house.
What is your latest and greatest?
I’m a filmmaker, recording artist, and I own my own film/music production company, Detaron Productions. I have a new album coming out called, “Fire” that I’m really excited about. We’ve got music videos lined up with the release and we’re releasing a teaser single sometime around April called, “Hot Sauce.” I’m also working on a new documentary that will talk about filmmakers and music artists like myself. This next year is full of creativity!
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
I hope they find a cure for COVID and we don’t have to be stuck at home anymore. It’s been tough for everyone and it’s difficult to get big projects done with all the restrictions.
How can we stay up to date with you?
I’m on Twitter (@deuandra), Instagram (@deuandra), Facebook (@deuandra), & TikTok (deuandra1). My music is also on all major music platforms like Spotify, Amazon, Tidal, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Apple Music, etc. You can also find my films on Amazon Prime, Vimeo, and Detaron TV (Roku). I am also on IMDB at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2928029/?ref_=vp_back.
Thank you for your time!
