Deanna Morae – Singer/Songwriter, Acoustic Guitar
Originally from Avilla, IN, Deanna moved to Indianapolis in 1991. She began her formal education at Anderson University to study music, voice and liberal arts. She later transferred to Herron School of Art in Indianapolis to study photography and graphic design. As life began to interrupt her dreams of a full-time musician, she took some time to raise her two daughters and pursued a full-time job with a local Indianapolis firm.
Deanna, a self taught guitar player, first picked up the instrument at age 12. Her songs come from her heart and tend to be very thought provoking.
“I leave no stone unturned when searching for the solutions that I desire,” says Deanna. “I am very determined and also have a great deal of faith in the music that I play and write, as well as the people I work with.”
