Worshipper, arranger, songwriter, producer and singer, to mention a few, are among the many talents of DeAndre'. This eclectic artist/producer has released his debut album entitled 'Going Over' in October of 2005. This project showcases DeAndre''s commanding vocal prowess and diverse musical stylings. DeAndre' has worked with Matt Kearny (Aware Records), Robert 'Aurel M' Marvin, and Paul Wright (Gotee Records); all who started out of Eugene/Springfield Oregon; which is quickly becoming a hotbed for Christian artists. DeAndre' started seriously writing in 1994; shortly after his surrender to the lordship of Jesus Christ. As a worship leader in his local church, he developed a unique style by combining his classical upbringing, contemporary pop, and influences of Blues and Jazz, into a style he calls 'Healnotic' music. 'Going Over', the 12 song DeAndre' LP, contains several elements of catchy hooks, rap, memorable vocals and clever use of classical instrumentation. Compared to the style of Israel Houghton, this CD is a solid production in the gospel genre. The independent release LP is carried under DeAndre''s own indie label, Triumph Records and was recorded at Pacific Quest Group Studios in Eugene; owned and operated by Marcel Schaal, who co-produced on the project. Marcel is credited on such projects as Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' and currently with the Dr. Phil Show. DeAndre' plans to give a release concert on January 28, 2006 and set up a series of appearances in the local and regional Pacific Northwest and Northern California area. He is currently promoting the project to media and radio.
