There are timeless artists and then there are timely artists. Very rarely has there been an opportunity for the two qualities to juxtapose, then along came CRUZ The Dame. Blending old soul with new sound, her vintage music sound captures the spirit of the classics that made our mamas and daddies snap their fingers along with today’s instantly captivating style. Fusing the Doo-Wop and Gospel music she grew up on with the Soul of the Blues, the sensuality of R&B, the innovation of Jazz, and the precision of Pop, CRUZ The Dame is bringing originality back to the future.
Glimmering in bright reds, whites, blacks, and luscious yellows, manifesting her sexuality through her classic Pin-Up Girl style, CRUZ The Dame is seductive yet sophisticated, the type who flaunts her disdain, your bad-ass chick. The consummate tease, CRUZ is the sort of girl that lives in every man’s fantasy. She is a social butterfly unafraid to express herself, flirtatious, sassy yet classy, glamorous yet intelligent and strong-willed.
Fearlessly sexy and bodily creative, CRUZ The Dame views the world through a different lens. Born of Spanish descent with the blood of six different nationalities running through her veins, she is a self-proclaimed "hybrid." This multi-dimensional perspective pops in her writing, helping to bridge racial divides through her music.
She awakens the music she sings through a fiery live show backed by her band, The Co-Hearts, further enhanced by her passionate movements and warm outgoing verbal prowess. With the inborn spirit of a true entertainer enhanced by her beauty beyond skin deep, CRUZ The Dame is equipped to captivate her audience both young and mature. She is a throwback troubadour whose style and grace will make you fall in love on-sight, destined to intrigue and inspire people throughout the world.
Groomed for showbiz since the nascent age of 4, her parents taught her the classics and the fundamentals of artistry which translates in her poised performances and confidence she brings to stage. She learned early to study the greats in order to be a great and her soulful, jazz-tinged vocals tell the story of lots of intent listening to the legends like James Brown, Etta James, Brenda Lee, Nancy Wilson and Aretha Franklin.
Her current EP, is entitled "Modern Sound in Rhythm & Soul Music Volume 1." The EP is an adventure in listening and the first in a trilogy of EP’s to be released. Boasting eight original tracks written, arranged, and produced by the triple threat artist herself along with Rev Slim/ Grown Productions. Modern Sound in Rhythm & Soul Music Volume 1 includes the hit single “Sweet Thang” along with a heartfelt tribute, “Something In The Wata” dedicated to Jackson Mississippi, who continues to deal with water crisis after two years. CRUZ The Dame, along with Music Executive Demmette Guidry (who helped launch the careers of Destiny’s Child, Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill, Mary Mary, and Maxwell, to name a few) has begun a new era in entertainment, launching VINTAGE SOUND RECORDINGS.
