In his new single “Lady”, Dallas-born, Brooklyn-based singer Dezi 5 pays tribute to his late grandmother Suvern “Vern” Freeman Simmons (who is pictured in the track’s artwork), and by extension, all the resilient women. The soulful song imbues emotional lyrics and is further intensified by the artist’s deeply powerful vocals. Dezi is expected to perform this piece today 10th December during the this year’s Dallas Observer Music Awards, an event which he’s hosting. Recorded at Modern Electric Sound in Dallas, “Lady” was released last Friday via 11A Records.
“When I was working on this song, it was a tribute to my grandmother’s resilience, but it turned into me honoring all the women in my life. Not just my family, but also my friends, women in the world fighting for equality, and trans women struggling to just stay alive.”Dezi 5
