Grounded and educated folk sounds at Spinner’s

Educated, yet unrefined. Grounded, yet inspired. Kamloops folk musician Deandra Dey embodies it all

Educated, yet unrefined. Grounded, yet inspired. The Kamloops-based folk musician Deandra Dey embodies it all.

Dey will be performing at Spinner’s Sound Centre in Vernon July 6. Joining her is Crossbow, an instrumental Celtic duo featuring cellist Christina Zaenker as well as harpist Neil Burnett.

Dey — a Manitoba-born singer-songwriter currently residing in Kamloops, is creatively driven by the B.C. wilderness, culture, and the stories she experiences and hears along the way.

Her folk sound is grounded in her early exposure to more mature styles of music, such as Joni Mitchell. Recently, Dey draws inspiration froms artists such as Feist, Chet Faker, Lianne La Havas and Meg Mac. She is trained in both classical and contemporary voice, yet her tone remains unrefined.

After recently receiving a demo recording grant from Factor Canada, and with this funding, Dey has released her debut EP Letters. When Dey is not in school completing her masters in education counselling, she can be found warming the atmosphere of intimate house parties, outdoor stages, and coffee shops in Kamloops.

Tickets are available for $20 at Spinner’s Sound Centre, 3107-30th Ave. Doors at 6 p.m.
