Daniel Jason Deweese
in the musical genes of singer/songwriter/composer
Daniel Jason Deweese there may be a bit of chameleon
DNA. With roots in classic rock and the folk troubadours
of the 70's, D.J. takes a sensibility for accessible
contemporary composition and mixes the colors of
ambient electronica and modern studio alchemy to
shift through a range of musical hues and patterns.
While much of his music originates from an acoustic
composition process, production forays into surprisingly
complimentary electonica genres interweave with
his carefully crafted songwriting to create dynamic,
a former member of the unique folk-rock duo State
of Mind (Cool Stuff Records), D.J. has made music
in basements and back alleys, in coffee houses and
on street corners, but works now primarily in his
St. Louis based studio to create original music
for exclusive live shows and a variety of media
applications, including Internet, TV, and film.
D.J made the transition from a member of a touring
act to solo artist and composer smoothly, and revels
in the tools of the modern composer on his successful
2007 album release "The Red Room."
new for 2009 are two new albums from Deweese, representing
divergent musical capacities, with rocktronic experimentaion
on "Dire Illusion" and adult contemporary
intimacy on "Bring the Thunder. Check

not sure how the chameleon's colors snuck into D.J.Deweese's
musical double-helix, but the resulting synthesis,
with its surprising shift through the colors of
folk, rock, adult contemporary and electronica,
sure do make for one enjoyable musical animal.
