“If it sounds good, it is good,” said Duke Ellington. His testimony turns into prophecy the moment you hear the voice of DYSON. The U.K. native started singing and writing songs at just 5 years old, now after many years of helping others tell their story its time for her to share hers.
“I love turning stories into songs,” says the British powerhouse. “But, I always knew I had this other gift I could share by singing. I just never told anyone.” Well, that is until she found herself speaking up while collaborating with A+A, the multiplatinum production duo comprised of Grammy winner Andre Lindal and Anthony Preston, who jumped at the chance to sign her to a development and production deal. “There’s something magical that happens when we’re together creating and they’re awesome at what they do,” DYSON says of her musical mentors. “They’ve taught me that music is expression first and that when you have a story, you can’t go wrong so, just tell it already!”
DYSON found early inspiration in big vocal luminaries like Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, and late R&B singer Aaliyah. “I admired these women for their powerful voices and ability to sing ANYTHING,” she says. Though, having had her own vocal presence and technique compared to that same level of megastar does comes with some added pressures. “To me, singing is the messenger of emotions and that makes it important.” Becoming a global messenger is something she’s ready to do. In addition to A+A, the project is collaborating with various multiplatinum selling and/or Grammy winning producers, writers and musicians including Giorgio Tuinfort, William Orbit, Abraham Laboriel, Lauren Christy, Rodney Jerkins, THE FR3SHMEN, Phil Bentley and Jodie Harsh. And, armed with a few “monster” songs, Dyson marches on her way to becoming a multigenre, multiplatinum recording artist. “Andre and Anthony opened my eyes to who and what I can be, and that I just needed to learn patience. Now, I want to be an inspiration… I want to spread a message communicated in a feeling… I’m just gonna do it with a song.”
