Los Angeles based indie-soul band Memoir steps out on its own after writing smash hit songs for top artists and placing sound tracks in TV show sand film. Memoir fuses elements of rock, blues and jazz for a genre-defying sound that is equal The parts vintage soul and contemporary pop. Front vocalists and songwriter Dena Deadly's voice can take music from seductive to anthem to pain -sometimes in the same song. Innovative drumming and tightly controlled guitar make this a band with a big future.
Memoir was formed in 2013 by spouses Zed Kelley (guitar) and Dena Deadly (vocals), who met while collaborating at a recording studio in North Hollywood. Together, Deadly, Kelley and her brother Remmington Garner have written hit singles for top-charting artists like Cee-Lo Green, Will-I-Am and Groove Armada, and their music has been featured in television shows and feature films to include Failure to Launch, “The Lying Game” and the theme song for “Vanderpump Rules”.
Last spring the trio stepped out and released their debut self-titled EP, Memoir. They are putting the finishing touches on their first full-length album, ” Fire In Me, and they just released their new single from the album "Who I Am,". "Who I Am" promotes self-expression and social equality, and is destined to become an anthem for anyone who has been oppressed or bullied due to race, creed or sexual orientation. We will hear the music and talk about the inspiration this Friday at 2:30 pm ET.
