” By choosing your thoughts, and by selecting which emotional currents you will release and which
you will reinforce, you determine the quality of your Light…” — Gary Zukav
It comes as no surprise that Dessy Di Lauro’s name, when translated, signifies, “the glowing crown” . This celebrated songstress and double platinum songwriter is the quintessential, golden-toned, fresh new voice in the Soul music kaleidoscope.
With musical roots deeply embedded in the multi-genres of jazz/funk/Latin and classic soul, Di Lauro is no novice to the versatility and gamut of expertise, exemplary of an artist, committed to her craft. The artist remarks on her childhood musical influences being shaped by early exposure to both the gospel
tradition in addition to her parent’s artistic preferences, which included enjoying legendary performers such as Sarah Vaughn, Stevie Wonder, Cab Calloway, Chaka Khan, Los Van Van, and Antonio Carlos
Di Lauro embarked on her own recording career, merging into Montreal, Canada’s metro, musical landscape, by establishing a name for herself, working in various singing groups, and delivering outstanding background performances with top-notch, music industry “royalty,” including Celine Dion and Mary J. Blige, to name a few. It was actually this soulful, smooth jazz vocalist’s gift for songwriting that elevated an already promising career to starstudded, double platinum status. Add the release of her first, solo EP, The Study of A Woman’s Soul. Di Lauro’s winning streak accelerated with she and manager/husband, Ric’key Pageot, both, being slated for roles, in the original casting of the world-renowned Cirque du Soleil stage production.
Today, Di Lauro and Pageot, a highly-respected, mega-musician and entertainment business mogul, himself, are fine-tuning the finishing touches of Dessy Di Lauro’s, ground-breaking, highly anticipated, sophomore projects. When asked what else the future holds, the luminescent, golden skin toned beauty beams with joy, coyly revealing plans for business ventures in both the global music market, as well as fashion and glamour industries! She humbly credits her husband as being the stabilizing, driving force behind her spiritual and musical electricity. She reflects admiringly, “I love that about him. He is always encouraging me to contribute, daily, to some aspect of my career goals, as well as the overall mastering of my craft.”
Dessy Di Lauro continues to “wow” adoring fans and large audiences with her high-energy, sultry, live performances throughout downtown Los Angeles, California. She is scheduled to perform during the opening ceremonies at the FIBA World Basketball Championships, in Instanbul, Turkey, on August 27, 2010.
