Dalea is a Mexican-American Recording Artist, Actress and Fashion Designer (on hiatus). Dalea emerged from New York City.
Her professional path as an artist began in 2008, when she exited her corporate career in Intimate Apparel Fashion -Design and Technical- to focus her efforts 100% on working as an Artist.
She initially founded the band Quimera Music (2009 - 2013) her artist moniker became 'Quimera', after her band, creating symphonic pop and cinema style music. Her first album “Love and Madness” (out of circulation) was released with the Argentinian label Twilight Records. She followed up with a self released album titled “IMMORTAL”.
In 2013 she decided to pursue a solo career and debuted simply as Dalea. While self producing single releases, music videos and cameos in film soundtracks, Dalea began writing and recording her debut album titled ‘VISITOR’, released May 24, 2016 to friendly nods from her audience.
As an alto with a unique timbre (think Grace Jones, Aude Henneville, Macy Gray, Alison Moyet) it took a minute for her to find her singing fingerprint, she feels that her album VISITOR and all subsequent released finally feature her singing voice properly. Amongst other people, she is thankful to vocal coach Elisabeth Lohninger for her singing technique guidance. If you need a hand with your singing technique, get in touch with Elisabeth here:
In 2018, Dalea began to focus her training to pursuit acting, her goal being to perform in roles that are meaningful to her. Dalea frequently shares that her life long love for acting and music has nothing to do with wanting to be a star, but it has everything to do with her timeless quest for creation. Her favorite genres are: Action, Comedy, Science Fiction and Fantasy.
Dalea is also the producer of The Treasury of Life Series (TTOL), and La Musa Imperfecta, (it's Spanish counterpart ) they are micro-films series featuring fables, poems and original writings meant to uplift and inspire. Via the TTOL she also encourages people to donate to children charities. On February 6, 2022, Dalea released the first episode of TTOL, A dream is a wish. Throughout 2022, The treasury of Life Series has been mostly narrated by Dalea; she has plans to in the future feature special guests.
Dalea has a profound interest in using her platform to help abandoned, abused or homeless children, being something in her life she knows all too well. Having had a difficult childhood herself, she deeply understands the emotional consequences of all aforementioned situations and the importance of providing motivation and faith as lifelines for a child's future.
This work has become a cornerstone in her life.
Dalea resides in the NYC area with her husband Patrick and their two Goldendoodles Dexter and Lukas.
