In her 51st year Deezelmama, Birthed A Record Label Named Underfoot. Born out of her frustration that the fabulous music her Producer husband was creating wasn’t being released. Deanne recognised the artists were struggling to take their music to the next step, while working day jobs and playing nights, in an industry full of fads, bright new things, and everchanging approaches to how music is delivered and distributed. Possessing a quick mind, unique skills, lots of available time, De as she is known by her friends, was up for a challenge. Marrying a musician in 1986, she ran away from the nine-to-five-world in the late 90's, parking her Economics Degree for the practicality of the family Removals business. Three decades of marriage, music, raising children & burying parents – plus another 20 years of various career incarnations, experiments and creative sidetracks gave De the diverse skills needed to own and manage the record label. Getting a kick out of nurturing creativity, the times of performances, videos recordings and planning strategies, gives owning a record label the wow factor. You can learn more at the label’s website underfootrecords.com.au and about De also at her website deezelmama.com. During the podcast discussion occurred around four books that were very helpful for De, here are two of those: ‘Creating’ by Robert Fritz and ‘The 4-Hour Work Week’ by Tim Ferriss. Believing people need creativity, consciousness and compassion – and music delivers on all three lifting people’s hearts and souls in the listening, is why De and her husband firmly believe that’s a very good use of their time.
