Good afternoon, YouthMundees!
At YouthMundus, we aim to not only be a platform for music and film, but for the artists who make them.
Our Artist Spotlight series aims to create a space for discovery of new, budding global talent, while simultaneously offering you an exclusive glimpse into their creative process.
In this week’s edition, we’re extremely excited to feature @dezimusic, a bold, NYC-based singer-songwriter with a lifelong passion for music. Inspired to write music at the early age of 11, Dezi has always been driven by her passion to perform. She grew up in Michigan, honing her skills as a musician throughout her childhood and adolescence: “I definitely wasn’t your average teenager,” Dezi says, “My entire middle and high
school career was devoted to performing, recording, and writing music. My junior and senior years were literally spent at a boarding arts academy studying songwriting in the middle of the woods.” Already gaining recognition for her talent, at only 17, Dezi went on tour for the first time. And, to add to her growing success, shortly after the tour, got accepted (and would eventually go on to attend) NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music.
Though it was new to her, Dezi’s passion and talent allowed her to ascend the ranks of the NYC performance scene: “The first shows I did were in small cafes and for local charity events, but I quickly moved up to doing festivals across the state. So meeting like-minded young people who were also committed to the arts was really refreshing and inspiring for me.” In 2016, Dezi dropped the soulful, pop-R&B single, ‘Tomorrow Will Be Yesterday’. The song catchily reminds us to embrace the beauty of the now, because “there ain’t no time like the present.” Using her strong belt and expert use of riff, her vocal style pleasantly echoes that of Ari Lennox and Ella Mai while simultaneously remaining daring and original.

Cowboy artist Don Weller laughs as he tells the story of drawing this self-portrait while riding a bullet train in Tokyo in 1980. The journal page reads “RIDING SHINKANSEN TWARD TOKYO. Smoother than New York trains but too bumpy to draw. Window reflection at nite.” Some of Weller’s drawings that he has collected in numerous sketchbooks have been compiled in his new book, “Tracks: A Visual Memoir.” Weller will sign his book from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, March 23, at Dolly’s Bookstore. || On assignment for @parkrecord || #iznatimages#canon#candid#sketch#artist#local#signing#talent#creative#portrait#utahphotographer#book
