Jannie Dee was born in the Philippines and migrated to Australia in 1992. She discovered her voice when she was just seven years old. Her passion for music landed her performances at primary school and other events in her early years. School band and choir were a natural choice for her. Jannie Dee also designed choreography for her cheerleading team and dance group.
At a young ages Jannie Dee fell in love with the vocal stylings of R&B artists like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. She loved connecting to the stories these women told in their songs. This inspired her to begin writing poetry, using it as an outlet to pen her emotions at the time. As she got older, she drew inspiration from artists like Brandy, Brian McKnight, Boyz II Men and other R&B artists that weren’t necessarily widely popular in Australia at the time. She dreamed of writing her own music and releasing an album, but had no idea how to get started.
Jannie Dee’s incredible vocal talent was discovered by a music producer in 2010. He was very impressed with her talent and vocal stylings. They began working together and he mentored her throughout the process of singing, writing music and planning. Life’s ups and downs got in the way of Jannie Dee’s passion at times during the process, but her passion for singing and dreamed of releasing an album never faded. In 2012 she began performing at local clubs and events in Melbourne, supporting local artists and singing both covers and her original songs.
Jannie Dee has spent much of 2015 intensely focused on music. Earlier in the year, she flew to Sydney to work with the music producer that originally inspired her to record. Her full EP has been recorded and is expected to be released very soon.
Jannie Dee’s sound is rich in emotion, relatable and fresh. When you see and hear her sing, you can feel her passion. Her sound is one that fills a void in the Australian music scene, adding her unique fusion of old skool R&B with a modern pop flare. Stay tuned, this is only the beginning.
