R&B/Pop Singer Songwriter Actor with songs that are a colorful blend of rhythms and words - bobs heads, gyrates hips and stirs the affections of lovers DeP
Biography:
His voice as powerfully textured as the strongest espresso. His music - a colorful blend of rhythms and words - bobs heads, gyrates hips and stirs the affections of lovers. An entertainer of infinite talent, he is a high-powered singer/songwriter/actor worthy of his name: DeP.

For DeP (pronounced: deep), the path to stardom started amidst the church walls in Houston, TX. In the music industry, he has been able to sing background, open for and work with some of today’s top artist including Kim Burrell, Yolanda Adams, KC and JoJo, Brian McKnight, Scarface, James Fortune, Latimore and more. DeP made the decision to sing R&B music stating that just because he grew up in the church didn’t mean he didn’t get mad, hurt, experience love, sex, or pain and should have the right to sing about it all.

DeP’s devoted work ethic has birthed an impressive body of work: performances and writing credits for various affairs. In the acting realm, his talent has been showcased at premiere performing arts venues, including the renowned Ensemble Theater along side many growing talents including Solange Knowles, where he developed an extensive list of acting credits. His television appearances include BET’s 106 & Park, CBS, and TBN as well as commercials for Six Flags and Ford. A principle actor in Jill Scott Ft. Anthony Hamilton’s “So In Love” Video, a featured actor/model for the Apple App “Puzzle Bodies”, a cameo in the television show Decker Green and more! DeP has also graced the pages of various publications including VIBE magazine, Rolling Stone and Houston Press.
After building a solid reputation in Houston and his popular single “Something More”, DeP relocated to Washington DC (contract #1) then to New York City (contract #2) to advance his career among the industry’s movers and shakers. While in NYC, DeP joined a local group. While grateful for his experiences being a lead member in the R&B group, his heart was intent on solo success. “Being a solo artist ensures fewer boundaries, fights, and scapegoats…” he says, “The creative restraints of being in a group disappear.” DeP is now INDEPENDENTLY taking Los Angeles by storm.

Those creative chokeholds are currently being shattered with the arrival of new songs such as “Contract”, “DWI”, “Rough”, and “Keep Coming Back. DeP channels the essence of his fiery personality into his current songs, providing a kaleidoscope of grooves – from soul-tinged riffs to a funky fusion of R&B and rock. These songs are ripe with unabashed lyricism and explosive plays of party rhythms.

An innovator, he’s securely driven by his passions and underwritten by his music, charities, and dedication, unconventionally shedding carbon-copied images of an emotionally void, self-centered man. Naturally defining swag, he moves purposefully, understanding nothing is happenstance but in everything, something D?P.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
