Deja Nielsen is a jazz and soul singer. Nielsen names Sarah Vaughan, Luther Vandross, Anita Baker, and others as powerful influences on her sound. The sound is silky and smooth like satin sheets. Yet, she is powerful and makes you feel the love and fun that are constant themes in her music. Deja believes in the power of music and wishes to bring joy to others through her performances.
Deja was born in Opelika, AL but grew up in North Florida. She has been living in Europe since her marriage to René Nielsen. He is a music producer and song writer. The pair work closely together. They have no children and have enjoyed living a quiet life on the Costa Blanca since 2009. They have two cats, Chester and Sophie.
