Daphee - “The Daffy Daphee”
Thump Records - Artist Bio
The first time Daphee “Daffy D.” ever heard her voice on TV was a thrill she had never known. It started with Vegas Bachellorette Party on WETV then Bad Girls Club on Oxygen then to everyone’s surprise Daphee’s song “Hair Like This” became a cable TV sensation. Showing up on “Toddlers and Tiaras” on TLC, “Dance Mom’s” on Lifetime, “House of Consignment” on VH1, “Step up 2” (Trailer), Loreal (hair products) and finally as a coveted Theme Song for WETV’s L.A. Hair. Hearing her voice on these shows and knowing she was a part of the creative process on her first song ever recorded was a quite a thrill for Daphee as she attempted to navigate the uncharted territory of the music business.
Daphee grew up in the San Fernando Valley. She had always been interested in music and arts as a child. She grew up playing keyboards, the accordion and sang in community events. Later in life Daphee’s stunningly good lucks and voluptuous body caught the eye of Playboy scouts. She was hired to be a Playboy Cybergirl Model and hosted numerous events at the Playboy Mansion. Her outlandish style and over the top humor earned her the name Daffy D. and made her a standout.
Daphee eventually caught the eyes and ears of veteran music producer, D. Salas, after she posted a video of her singing on a social Media site. Salas immediately saw the potential of Daphee and recorded “Hair Like this” after he overheard her singing it to herself. Daphee eventually went on to write songs for MC Magic (Reasons) which went on to receive radio airplay, as well as 80’s super group - Tierra (Passionate Storm, Nuestra Ciudad, Give Me A Sign), OG PLayboy (Never Fade Away), Midget Loco (I’m Done) and Numerous others. Thump Records President Bill Walker eventually caught wind of Daphee and her success with “Hair Like this” and was floored by her energy and uniqueness. She was signed to Thump in Late 2012 and has been building the foundation of her music career.
Daphee is nearing the completion of her debut CD which consists of Dance, Pop, Latin, Urban, and Electro tracks. She has since received radio airplay with her remake of George Michaels’ “Last X-Mas” in various southwest markets and continues to gain new fans at her shows, most recently at the legendary Conga Room in LA. Daphee’s music mirrors her very own unique image: sexy, provocative, fun, in your face and exciting. Look for it in late 2015 on Thump Records!
