Master of cinematic grandeur, Pop-Rock Vocalist Dalea is one of the most intriguing acts to emerge from the New York scene in recent years. Her story in music began in 2008, when after the passing of her father, she left her career in fashion to work in music full time. Dalea founded the band Quimera Music which was active from 2009-2013 and set out to balance the best aspects of rock, pop and epic cinema music. Her first album “Love and Madness” (were she collaborated with various composers) was released under the Twilight Records label, relatively under the radar. It wasn’t until the release of her second (double) album titled “IMMORTAL”, now working exclusively with Swedish composer Patrick Rundblad, that she was greeted with international nods from music critics and fans.
After four years with her band, Dalea set out to pursue a solo career and continue evolving her music. Armed with single releases, music videos and cameos in film soundtracks, Dalea and Patrick began writing and recording her debut solo album titled ‘VISITOR’, which released May 24, 2016. The rest, is a story still being written now.
