Overdue by two weeks and in no hurry to arrive to her proud parents, Leland and Theresa, Deirdre Leah Faegre made up for lost time by learning to swim before she could walk at nine months.
Typing at four, with determination and confidence she proceeded to each task and accomplishment with extraordinary grace and style and became a model for others during her developmental years that also included gymnastics and a sudden interest in the piano at age nine.
Her dad's passion for Vangellis' 'To the Unknown Man,' was the inspiration that piqued her interest in playing the piano, but it was her steady cultural diet of John, Paul, George and Ringo that established her direction as a singer/songwriter and musician/arranger.
But not until she received international recognition for her 'Cartwheel Heard 'Round the World' where Deirdre dominated a nearly a week long news cycle in November, 2004 with many appearances on radio and television including Ryan Seacrest, Today and Jimmy Kimmel Live who described her as "...an American Hero," would she be firmly ensconced in her music.
A published singer/songwriter at thirteen, the worldwide release of her infectiously innocent, 'Shining In My Hair,' appearing on an artist compilation CD from AudioSparx entitled, Female Pop - Volume 1, came only 9 months after its debut in Summer, 2006. A collection of female-vocal pop music with a flair, including pop, soft pop, alt pop and Lillith Fair-styled pop music tracks, 'Shining In My Hair' stands out as an endearingly attractive statement of youthful wonder and love of life.
Based in the United Kingdom, Deeper Thought Ltd, a new entry in the coin operated video game industry and creators of amusement content for video games that build on current and popular trends has licensed Deirdre's 'Shining In My Hair' for 'Make Meez A Rockstar!' a music based Flash game. Deeper Thought Ltd specialize in game and system development, game design, programming, hardware design and interface development.
Deirdre's re-released follow-up single, 'In My Eyes' was placed in a short film written and directed by Jack Kearney of [The JAX Company Film Production Group LLC] entitled, 'Indian Hill,' about a 12 year old boy and his friends growing up in suburban Portland, Connecticut, circa 1975. A neighborhood coming of age story about the challenge of conquering 'Indian Hill Road' on a bicycle; a feat that separates the “little kids” from the “big kids” in their neighborhood.
In November, 2014, Deirdre licensed "Shining In My Hair" from her music catalogue to Riva Donna, an exclusive Greek beauty spa located in Thessaloniki for a 30 second television commercial on TV100, a local station.
At seventeen, Deirdre represented the Ice Skating Association of Ireland as Junior Ladies Champion on the world stage of figure skating competition.
A County and State Delegate to the 2012 Nevada Republican Convention, ASCAP Singer/Songwriter Deirdre Leah Faegre now resides in Brighton, a seaside resort on the southeast coast of England where The Argus [part of the US Gannett media group] described her as “a standard in Brighton’s acoustic and folk scene” thanks to headline appearances on radio and stage including Brighton’s first annual ‘Together The People.’
