Dezmond Meeks is a singer, songwriter and musician based out of Los Angeles. Over the past few years he has built a devoted national following, performing sold-out shows from Hollywood to Chicago.

With a full, four-octave vocal range, Dezmond follows in the footsteps of greatness with an undying drive for newer heights. Inspiration came easy as he learned early, whether indirectly or directly, from the likes of such legends as, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Jackie Wilson, James Brown, Sly Stone, Mariah Carey, Tina Turner, The Clark Sisters and more. Dezmond also finds great artistic inspiration from his Louisiana roots. Not only an exceptional vocalist, Dezmond is as equally accomplished as a dancer and pianist. To see and hear an artist combine all these talents is truly rare and refreshing.

As a producer, Dezmond has had the opportunity to work with both notable and rising talent, including Joey Sykes, Fabrizio Grossi, James Torme (son of Grammy legend Mel Torme), Guy B, Mark Grilliot, IAMONE, David Kater and Korean dance artist, Keyrie.

The second of three sons of the famed Argentinean 60s singer Yaco Monty, Monty began his career at an early age. He made his TV debut in at seven and by the time this accomplished singer, songwriter, and guitarist was 20, he had already signed his first record deal. He released two successful albums in Argentina “Monty,” and “Voy a Dejarte Loca”, and toured with great Latin artists such as Luis Miguel and Ricardo Montaner.

Monty recently completed the production of a full length studio album “Ella,” comprised entirely of his own Latin-flavored soul/R&B material, for which peermusic brought together a “dream team” of producers, co-writers, video directors and photographers.
