    Escher Heart
Growing up in a Kent village as one of three and a tomboy at heart, Déyyess would be found in the back garden playing football with her older brother.
By the age of 12 she discovered Lady Gaga and her life changed. “I became a little monster!” she asserts, still with a glint in her eye. However, Lady Gaga provided more than just musical inspiration, she gave Déyyess the confidence to be honest about her sexuality at 14. “I felt so strongly about certain aspects in life, it was a turning point. Lady Gaga is a huge supporter of the LGBTQ+ community. I’d watch all her interviews. I remember the one really poignant speech that changed me was the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell campaign. It held a really strong message and the way she was speaking, her body language, it reinforced for me that this was how life should be.”
While at school Déyyess was scouted to play for Arsenal Girls but she turned down the opportunity to concentrate on music.
Her music details real life relationships and experiences with a tilted pop sensibility that sits somewhere between the narratives of King Princess and the imagination of Kate Bush. “When I’m in something, I’m all in. My last relationship was the same. She was the first girl I ever loved, and she knew that. I think that’s probably why she broke up with me. Most of my songs are about her. I’m literally just over it, but if I didn’t have that heartbreak, I don’t think I’d be here. I’m so glad that happened to me.”
