The daughter of Bostonian jazz musicians, Erica Dee has been immersed in music her entire life. She discovered her sound within the underground electronic and hip-hop culture of Nelson, British Columbia, Canada. Erica began singing with DJs and bands at the age of 17. In college, Erica quickly built a name for herself when she began DJ’ing a live set of her own in 2007. After seeing her live, DJ Nu-Mark of Jurassic 5 was so impressed with her performance, that he invited her to write and record in Los Angeles. That same year she embarked on her first nationwide tour with DJ Shadow and released her classic mixtape Golden, which combines 90’s R&B flavors with nu house and beat music.

 

Erica Dee has captivated audiences from Brazil to Israel, and performed with a wide array of artists such as Quest Love, Mark Farina, Masta Ace, Lil’ Kim, DJ NU MARK, Thievery Corporation, Justin Martin, and Bassnectar.

 

In addition to her recordings, Erica Dee’s live show is a refreshing experience; she’s an international soulstress that’ll lead you to discover the depths of your own heart, beguiling you with melody, rhythm, standout acapella segments and artistically selected productions.

Previous Experience and Education:
– 13 years of professional singing experience
– Selkirk College School Of Music Diploma
– School Of Moves Certification
– 8 Years of Private and Group Lessons
– 3 Years of Youth Camp Facilitations

 

A note from Art Camp co-founder

Art is essential. It connects us and brings great joy to our lives. By making and creating, we become problem solvers, exercising both sides of our brains. It is a celebration of beauty, a mode to express what is deep within, and a tool to better understand our place in the world.

 

That which is most essential is often overlooked and taken for granted. The arts are under represented in our schools and communities today. Understanding the importance of art education for our children and youth has been the core inspiration behind our children’s art programming over the past three years. It is with great joy that we see this program growing and becoming a consistent and reliable way for parents to enrich their child’s lives through art.

 

Thank you to all of you that have been a part of this journey, so far. We look forward to seeing even more smiles and excitement on children’s and parent’s faces as our program develops.

Anita Levesque, on behalf of Oxygen Art Centre
