Because of all the places and spaces you could be right now, you chose to be here with me - if only for a few moments. And for that, I thank and welcome you.

I am DeAnna "D.Elle" Carpenter and I'm excited to welcome you and share a bit of myself with you in this space. Being an artist and creative is humbling, exciting and gives my life meaning in every way. To be able to share my music is an experience I have yet to fully put into words, yet I'll try.

It's magical.

Sharing my heARTwork pushes me out of my comfort zone and stretches me to be better, to love more, to receive more and to give more with each breath. It's a bit scary at times because I find myself exposing myself in ways that aren't always comfortable, but if it ain't scary in some way, I guess it's not worth doing, right?

Feel free to look around, get comfortable, and if you like what you hear, see and feel, then please stay. You're welcome here, and I hope you can feel that.

Love and light,

Tsunami EP Release and Show

 —  —

Underground at the Dime, 1265 Griswold St., Detroit

DeAnna Carpenter is a singer, songwriter and lover of life who expresses herself through word, sound and movement. A native of Detroit, DeAnna returns to her beloved hometown to release and perform original music from her anticipated first music project, Tsunami. A feel-good album with a lot of soul and introspection, Tsunami features songs written by DeAnna that takes the listener on a journey of self discovery.

Her first performance as a solo artist in her hometown, DeAnna is excited to return to the place that infused in her dedication, persistence, hustle, family, culture and importantly, music. And, she's eager to feature and perform with musicians and artists from Detroit, most of whom she went to school with and graduated from Cass Tech High School with. Be prepared to experience and be taken on a musical journey, one that will have you leaving the Dime feeling lifted, loved, inspired and seen.

Show opens with a 15-minute set by Detroit artist GCA$H ATALL.

There will be a CD signing and "Meet the Artist" immediately following the end of the show.

Bring lots of love and good vibes, and be prepared to receive both (and so much more) in return!
