Born and raised in California, DeAnna started playing violin at the tender age of 3 and started performing professionally by the age of 8. During her time in California, DeAnna performed in the YMMC Honors Orchestra, The Monterey Peninsula College Orchestra, chamber groups, traditional Mexican and folk groups and as a soloist.
At the age of 19, a young DeAnna moved to Essex, England where she broadened her musical horizons writing music and fronting punk, rock and indie bands with numerous releases through independent record labels and tours across the UK. Having spent all of her 20s touring and writing music, DeAnna's most recent projects include Muertos, a psychedelic shoegaze band and Las Guadalupes, an empowering female fronted mariachi duo, whilst continuing to perform as a soloist and songwriter.
DeAnna's songs and recordings have been published through Bitterscene Records, Wrong Way Records and Roadkill Records. DeAnna has hundreds of live performances under her belt, including The Dome at Tufnell Park, 100 Bar Club in London, The Fling Festival, Panic Awards and International Mariachi Festivals in New Mexico and Arizona, USA. DeAnna has years of experience performing at weddings, festivals, corporate events and on live TV and radio, nationally and internationally - anywhere from the big stage at a festival through to your more intimate settings.
DeAnna is a professional violinist, classically trained since the age of three, fluent in musical styles ranging from classical through to Latin, pop, gypsy, folk, celtic, dance, electronic and more! Let her know your musical requirements and she will create a bespoke set for you on acoustic or electric violin.
