QUALITY MEETS PASSION IN DIONNE BLAIZE – an amazing recording artiste with a sense of purpose
“Music is my life. I view my involvement with music as that of a marriage. It is something I will cherish forever. It's
my passion as well as my calling. I eat, sleep, breath, walk and live – music,” says Dionne Blaize, an experienced,
driven Caribbean-American songwriter, vocalist and recording artiste, based in Brooklyn, New York City.
Some artistes are looking to entertain their audiences, or to just ‘make it’ with a big hit; while there are others who
have a much deeper aim, endeavoring to make a difference through their production of quality music, and to truly
connect with their listeners and fans. The latter is truly the case with Dionne, who has been deeply committed to
music ever since she was a tot.
According to her mother, Dionne started singing at the tender age of six months, immensely inspired by Whitney
Houston, whose music, along with that of other artistes, was always in the air and in Dionne’s ear in her childhood
home. In fact, from as early as age six, Dionne was in love with music, inspired by her elders in a home which was
culturally affluent – surrounded by musicians and great records. Eventually, she took up singing seriously, first
performing as part of her school’s choir, and later maturing into a talented and accomplished vocal performer with
a distinctive voice.
Blessed with a well-trained alto-soprano voice with great range, Dionne writes very personal tunes that are loaded
with emotional signals and with a vibrant modern sound. Dionne’s style is kaleidoscopic, inspired by a wide variety
of genres and influences. This is borne out of her global scope of music and her understanding of the importance
of appreciating and exploring different genres, in an age when technology is allowing the public to have easy
access to a wide variety of music at their fingertips. Here, Dionne smoothly crisscrosses, blurs and refines the lines
between multiple genres – as her repertoire includes soul, pop, reggae, R&B, house and EDM.
Already, Dionne has written 150 plus songs, recorded at least 50 and published over 25. To date, she has released
two albums – "Rise Up" in 2008 and "Contagious" in 2019. The latter was released through Jweek Records . Her
recent recordings comprise of a few reggae covers. Of these, she has already released "I Believe In You and Me" by
Whitney Houston.
