DESIIRE is a Congo born, Toronto based Singer/Songwriter who delivers a unique blend mix of R&B & Hip/Hop to create music that is a compilation of rhythmic instrumentals, layered melodies and moody simplicity.

THE QUIET STORM EP is a quiet expression of what happens when formative years spent in Kinshasa, Congo confronts a new urban reality.

A deep love of the creative process allows for an honest and simple interpretation of a life long’s obsession with Jazz, R&B, Gospel and Hip Hop. Heartbreaking vocals, rich with experience carry the weight of moody simplicity. The EP offers a genuine array of creative and emotional perspective through vocals, simple beats and melodies. The Quiet Storm is a collection of tracks that allows an intimate look into the inner workings of an artist- to a place where influences collide.
