“If at first you don’t succeed, try try again”… These words ring true in the life of Louisiana native soul/pop singer Dezmond Meeks. Affectionately known as “The Prince of Soul” by many respected musicians and fellow live entertainers, over the past several years Meeks has built a devoted national following, performing sold-out shows from the legendary venues of Hollywood & The Sunset Strip to the underground hot spots of New York City… all as a self sustaining independent recording artist.
According to close friend and fellow musicians James Torme, “Dezmond Meeks is without question the new hardest working man in show- business”. Even turning the head of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, saying “He reminds me of when I first signed Stevie Wonder… and if I were in charge of Motown today, I’d sign him right right now!!!”
An skilled pianist with a stunning five-octave vocal range, Dezmond found the roots of his artistic inspiration from time spent as a musician/singer in the Gospel churches of Southern Louisiana… and has since taken the values and strength along on the long journey to stardom. In his self produced live show “Dezmond Meeks LIVE” combining elements of soul/pop/funk/dance from his greatest influences ranging from Michael Jackson, Prince, Sammy Davis Jr., Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Chaka Khan and Mariah Carey, Dezmond is proving time and time again that he is worthy of prosperous and long career in the music industry… just as his teachers. This is expressed extensively in the music and performance of Dezmond Meeks. Dezmond Meeks released his debut EP “The Prince Of Soul” in 2011.
