Deanna Davis-Cannon is a songwriter, producer, vocalist, multi-woodwind instrumentalist and audio/mix engineer. She is also a technology professional.
Since the age of 12, when the school’s band teacher sought her out and gave her a mouthpiece to take home and learn to buzz, music has always found its way to Deanna. Never one to look a gift mouthpiece in the reed—or something like that—Deanna taught herself well enough to earn access to the whole clarinet within a week, and by the time she finished middle school she had also learned to play the saxophone, flute, oboe and bassoon.
After being lost from music for many years, Deanna found her way back. She resumed her established roots as a woodwindist, playing clarinet and alto sax for her college band while completing a degree in IT. At the same time, she began working on her own musical projects.
Her technological proficiency, coupled with her desire to record and mix her own music projects, lead to her studying audio and music production. She earned Master Certifications from Berklee College of Music in Theory, Harmony and Ear Training, as well as Music Writing and Production. She then took her interest in sound production a step further and pursued live sound and sound design.
Deanna is guided by the belief that communication is an incredibly powerful tool. Her deepest desire is to utilize the communicative power of music to connect with people, move people meaningfully, and provide aural escapes in which listeners can experience peace and regeneration.
She is a member of the Audio Engineering Society and ASCAP and is a board member of Band Room Nation, which is an organization that supports and promotes the arts in schools.
