After having spent the last several years writing hit singles for some of music’s biggest names, five-time Grammy Award nominated, Ester Dean, one of the music industry’s most in-demand and sought-after hit makers, is finally ready to step into the spotlight. She has penned top-10 singles across all genres and now, in 2012, she is adding roles on the big screen and her own self-titled EP to her already impressive list of accomplishments.
A true personification of the phrase “triple-threat,” Ester’s infectious and unique personality makes the transition from behind the scenes to showcasing her talent in front of the camera a natural one.
Signed to Interscope Records and managed by JAY Z’s Roc Nation, Ester is a standout star possessing one of music’s most distinctive, versatile voices that spans from raspy to demure without losing its ultra-emotive tone.
Ester began 2012 with an appearance on the Machine Gun Kelly track “Invincible,” and set about making sure that 2012 is a banner year for her as an artist. While working in the studio with numerous artists, she has also recorded for her upcoming solo EP. Teaming with fabled production team Swedish House Mafia on “Bam Bam,” the track features Ester’s signature vocal style mixed with a driving rhythm section and one of her trademark hooks.
The studio is not the only place Ester has demonstrated the extent of her full range. Ester voiced Sloth Siren in the smash film, “Ice Age: Continental Drift,” to which she also lent her writing talents with the title song “We Are.” Ester made her official acting debut in the highly-anticipated Pitch Perfect (Universal Pictures), a film about an all-girl a cappella group, also starring Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow.
Since 2009, the Oklahoma-born artist showed an ability and versatility to craft catchy pop hits, as her first single “Drop It Low ft. Chris Brown” became an instant Top 40 Billboard success. Originally recorded for the Lebron James documentary More Than a Game, the single showed Dean’s undeniable vocal.
