"LaDolceVita" New Album stream - www.soundcloud.com/DezNadoLaDolceVita
Dez Nado's currently on a promotional tour for his latest album release "LaDolceVita", a full-length LP dsitributed by Universal Music Group (iTunes, Amazon.com, Spotify, TIDAL, and everywhere music is available online) that has been getting great reviews for its uniqueness, its positive yet artistically genuine vibe, and its raw-but-real appeal that reflects many of the underpinnings of the Black Lives Matter movement which are especially evident in the album's lead single "American Dream" (an ode to the victims of police brutality and other social injustices in the U.S.), released earlier this year.
The single, which is preceded by Dez's 2015 single "Futuristic" that independently moved over 12,000 units (via Digiwaxx Global), is currently spinning on national and international radio and most recently was played by the Portland Trailblazers during their home playoff games in the 2016 NBA Playoffs. Some of Dez’s recent achievements include him being invited to the invite-only 2015 BMI Hip Hop/R&B Awards in Los Angeles after getting his first major BMI song credit with Atlantic Records’ Sevyn Streeter, winning 2014-2015 Jacksonville Artist of the Year award, as well as 2017 Jacksonville Caribbean Music Awards Artist of the Year, receiving two Georgia Music Award nominations, and consecutive (2015 & 2016) BET Hip Hop Awards pre-show performances in Atlanta. His new single, “Duele”, has been called “arena music” by one of Atlanta’s premier industry publicists Lalaa Shepard. It’s a catchy, latin-influenced, upbeat, bachata/reggae fusion with anthemic, live instrumentation and vocals blended with a unique, hip hop vibe, all a reflection of Dez Nado's mixed American, Jamaican, and Panamanian roots.
In addition to promoting his new album, Dez is also touring multiple markets in the south and Caribbean looking for talent to feature on his hit TV series “Life & Grind” (CW/Bounce Network – Comcast 225/Digital 17-2, airs Sundays at 6pm in northeast Florida, southeast Georgia, and in Atlanta on DeKalb cable 25 – Sundays 7pm), which innovatively provides viewers with a firsthand look into the lives and daily grinds of a cast of 8 rappers, singers, and entertainment entrepreneurs who are trying to “make it big” in their city. The fall 2016 college homecoming tour included stops at several college campuses including Howard University, Florida A&M, Bethune-Cookman, University of Central Florida (during Florida Classic weekend, one of the largest annual weekend events in the south, after Dez/Life & Grind appeared locally on MTV, BET, ESPN in Orlando on self-made commercials in promotion of his “Florida’s Finest” mixtape and its release party at VAIN nightclub with Ciroc & Belair vodka sponsors) and Spelman/Morehouse, during which he visited various classrooms/classroom-like settings before and after performances to discuss societal issues. The 2016 #LifeGrindUSA Spring tour was a continuation of the fall tour, taped throughout the first half of the year with cast members performing, meeting locals face-to-face, visiting local media outlets, plus local talent features from each region. Much like the fall 2016 Homecoming tour that included stops in Washington, D.C. during Howard University’s famed homecoming weekend and several other college campus stops during which Dez Nado visited various classrooms/classroom-like settings before or after performances to discuss community empowerment, social awareness, and the relevance of these factors to hip hop and Black culture, the spring tour included several performance stops: Dez and cast members were slated to perform in Houston during Super Bowl LI with west coast hip hop legend Snoop Dogg, in New Orleans for both NBA All-Star Weekend and Mardi Gras weekend, at the annual Spring Fest concert in Jacksonville at 1904 Music Hall in mid-March, the Stardom Music Awards in Virginia, at which Dez will attend as an “Artist To Watch 2017” award nominee, Los Angeles for the BET Awards Experience, and Jamaica for the annual Jamaica Dream Weekend, among other dates that can be viewed in full on the show’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/LifeGrindDuval -- the 2017 College Homecoming Tour was focused more on spot filming dates throughout Florida and included a first-time red carpet media spot for Life & Grind during the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards. The Spring Tour 2017 will involve concurrent recording for both Life & Grind ATL and Duval series.
