INSTRUCTOR BIO:

Erica Dee

Screen shot_ericadee137 copy(1)

The daughter of Bostonian jazz musicians, Erica Dee has been immersed in music her entire life. She discovered her sound within the underground electronic and hip-hop culture of Nelson, British Columbia, Canada. Erica began singing with DJs and bands at the age of 17. In college, Erica quickly built a name for herself when she began DJ’ing a live set of her own in 2007. After seeing her live, DJ Nu-Mark of Jurassic 5 was so impressed with her performance, that he invited her to write and record in Los Angeles. That same year she embarked on her first nationwide tour with DJ Shadow and released her classic mixtape Golden, which combines 90’s R&B flavors with nu house and beat music.

Erica Dee has captivated audiences from Brazil to Israel, and performed with a wide array of artists such as Quest Love, Mark Farina, Masta Ace, Lil’ Kim, DJ NU MARK, Thievery Corporation, Justin Martin, and Bassnectar.

In addition to her recordings, Erica Dee’s live show is a refreshing experience; she’s an international soulstress that’ll lead you to discover the depths of your own heart, beguiling you with melody, rhythm, standout acapella segments and artistically selected productions.

Previous Experience and Education:
– 13 years of professional singing experience
– Selkirk College School Of Music Diploma
– School Of Moves Certification
– 8 Years of Private and Group Lessons
– 3 Years of Youth Camp Facilitations
