Raised in Walthamstow, East London, Dean is a definite child of music. Growing up singing in a gospel choir, taking musical theatre lessons and attending the BRIT school, you might say a musical life was fated for her. Her career got its start when she collaborated with UK producer electronic-pop group Rudimental as a supporting vocalist at just 17 years old. Not before long, she had signed with EMI and begun winning over hearts with her endearingly heartfelt yet hopeful EPs, Ok Love You Bye (2019), What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays? (2020) And Growth (2021). Live music is another place she’s always thrived unsurprisingly – touring the UK post-pandemic in a bright yellow truck, performing free shows for the community from Cornwall to Nottingham and beyond, selling merch and even mince pies at one point. Fast forward three years, she’s sold out the Jazz Café, had her own secret set at Glastonbury, performed at the British Fashion Awards and most recently performed to a sold out KOKO and Roundhouse here in her hometown before embarking on a European tour. Having worked and toured with the likes of Loyle Carner and Jordan Rakei, her voice inspiring its own viral moments on TikTok and a massive cross-generational cross-genre fanbase at the ready, Dean is primed and raring to stake her claim with her debut record, Messy.
