Currently, Dez has been writing praise and worship music, as she feels that this is the direction God has called her in for now. She hasn’t set any dates for a third album release, but is rather enjoying life as a mom to her son Tristan as well as serving on her church’s worship team.
Since Dez’ debut in 2012 with her first full-length album Heart Cry, her music has been touching lives all over New Jersey and in several parts of the US.
