She has had feature roles on Cirque du Soleil and sang background vocals for the likes of Patti Labelle, Deborah Cox, & The Neville Bros. He has toured with Madonna, written and performed on Jill Scott's new album, The Light of The Sun. Now Dessy Di Lauro and her producer/husband Ric'key Pageot are ready to take the music world by storm with their neo-ragtime sound.
Montreal born, L.A.-based, Dessy Di Lauro (pronounced D’Laro) delivers a unique flavor of original music she describes as ''Feathered Fro-hawk Futuristic Art Deco-Centric Harlem Renaissance Hep Music,'' which blends the ragtime musical language of the speakeasy era with today’s contemporary urban sounds.
The album features catchy hooks, along with stride piano, live horns, electronic/urban overtones with resonating keyboard bass and thumping drum machines sounds. Dessy’s lyrical subject matters range from challenges of today's artists dealing with social media’s heavy influence on the music industry, on her song ‘Popularity Contest’, to ending an abusive relationship on ‘Never Existed’ to simply having a good time at the juke joint party on ‘Jump ‘N’ Jivin’.
