Deqn Sue Drops Quirky And Sharp Edged Alt Pop New Single And Album

Deqn Sue Drops Quirky And Sharp Edged Alt Pop New Single And Album

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Deqn Sue is an American alternative pop artist with a sharp edge bursting with message and humour. She has been featured on NPR Tiny Desk and in Netflix original series, Orange is the New Black but is still relatively unknown outside of the US. Spending most of her time between Huntsville, Alabama and L.A. here is a refreshing songmaker whose quick lyrical and sonic turns create constant surprise without ever missing a beat. With hints of Funk, R&B, pop and even vaudeville and EDM, she transcends style, spinning words and sounds and is purely engaged in the now.

Let's start with her name: an amalgam of the character name that her father Rod Perry made famous on the hit 1970s TV series S.W.A.T. - Sgt. David "Deacon" Kay - and her mother's first name.

DeQn Sue describes her music as socially conscious, alternative pop. A good description, knowing that her influences are Chaka Khan, David Bowie, Queen and visual artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
"I want to make music that lasts," DeQn Sue says. "Music that you will think about for years to come."

With her new album 'Juggernaut' on the horizon this will evidently come to pass. Having come up through singing in church it's easy to hear tones of Beyonce and Kelis but her kitsch tastes in avant garde art and poetry from the likes of William Ernest Henley and the aforementioned Basquiat and a distaste for x-rated sexscapades through song keep this artist among only a handful of unique, yet ambitious and effortlessly talented pop stars out there.

Keep your eyes and ears open for UK and European tours in support of this brilliantly original conscious pop queen in waiting.

From the young lady who seems to have it all, "It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul." Taken from Invictus by William Ernest Henley
