With provocative vocals inspired by the deep and sultry ballads of her Idol, Toni Braxton and the sun-kissed shores of the Caribbean; Dehshh maybe Jamaica’s best kept secret.
Drawing inspiration from her life experiences and bad breakups, her first mixtape, “State of Confusion”, released in December 2017 features soulful R&B ballads that illicit in her listeners a bewildering feeling of being secure in their own insecurities.
Yet, following up on this R&B infused mixtape, you can find her on the more up-tempo dancehall flavoured track “Tun Up Di Vibes” or the melodic Abrobeat track “All on Me”. Her uncanny ability to smoothly transition into any genre of music: Dancehall, Reggae, Soca, R&B, AfroBeat and even Pop has made her a rising sensation.
We got a chance to throw a few questions her way and here is what she had to say…………….
