"Anything good that can happen will happen. It might sound like a cliché, but I
think the statement fits my optimistic personality perfectly. I also strive for
that flavor of positive energy to come across in my music," says jazz pianist
One good listen to this artist's incredible music will take the
listener on a rhythm ride through a myriad of modern emotions
and sensual pleasures that Deems promises will soothe your soul.
"My music is accessible to most people because it's not harsh or
frantic. It's a smooth groove, a style of music that comes
across peaceful and makes you feel good."
Deems has established himself internationally as a distinctive
and imaginative writer, arranger, producer and bandleader, as
well as explosive solo pianist. With his roots planted firmly in
an Asian American upbringing, Deems' music has evolved into a
delectable blend of R&B, pop and mainstream jazz that he calls
"contemporary soul jazz."
Deems has achieved worldwide airplay with his instrumental hit
single Tough Tofu and, as he always says,
"Please enjoy my music
as I promise you, you'll love it!"
