HomeEntertainmentARTIST SPOTLIGHT: DeJuan Turrentine


“Great music is that which penetrates the ear with facility and leaves the memory with difficulty. Magical music never leaves the memory.” – Sir Thomas Beecham

Talented artists often come a dime a dozen.  Some have to find just the right niche in which to fit, some need a little luck getting the break they’re seeking at just the right time, and still others have drive and determination that allows for them touch their fans with such a force, that their music is permanently imprinted in the minds of all who witness their talent.  And so it is with DeJuan Turrentine.

24-year old DeJuan Turrentine is a man on a mission and it won’t be long before his journey pays off. The California native with stunning good looks is the nephew of legendary jazz saxophonist, Stanley Turrentine. Being surrounded by music growing up, it was only natural that entertainment was DeJuan’s chosen career path. In addition to being a recording artist and brilliant performer, DeJuan is also an actor, model and songwriter whose true passion is showcasing his skills in live performances.

Having attended various acting schools in his younger years, DeJuan landed national leads for top companies including Sprite and Reebok. He has had dominant roles in several films, including “Way Past Cool“, “A Good Man is Hard to Find” and “Down To the Last Minute.”

DeJuan’s musical influences are as broad and diverse as the artist himself and include R&B, Pop and Country Music artists such as Patti Labelle, Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Garth Brooks, and Whitney Houston. He is a classically trained pianist who has mastered the art of production. DeJuan and his brother own Blaque Rose, a production company, and they are currently working on the first single for artist J Blue featuring Snoop Dogg.

DeJuan has been privileged to have the opportunity to write songs for Usher and Whitney Houston, along with various other artists. He is a driven, phenomenal artist who has already taken on more in the youth of his career than most seasoned performers.

Pay attention because this is a rising star you don’t want to miss! You can follow DeJuan on Twitter – @DEJUAN_
