Dezaray Dawn - Can't Look Down

Dezaray Dawn is a Southern United States based, German born singer. This cross continental upbringing is reflected in her music where you can hear influences from the likes of Jazzanova, 2000 Black and Marc Mac in the production married with the quality you expect from American vocalists

Can't Look Down is a sampler of her forthcoming "Chameleon" EP which I for one will be purchasing the moment it is released.
