Deanna Marie Loveland was born April 5, 1989 in Bethesda, Maryland. She grew up in Sudlersville, Maryland, living a fairly normal, yet fast-paced childhood. Deanna’s father was a worship leader and computer specialist while also serving in the National Guard. Her mom (former military) was a beautician/salon owner and homemaker.
With a natural ear for music, Deanna’s classical studies began on the piano when she was 5 years old. This led to learning the violin and harp and performing locally in churches and nursing homes. As a home-schooled student, Deanna’s growing up years consisted of racing the clock to finish her studies early so she could practice music for hours on end. When she wasn’t practicing, her hobbies included writing, sewing and embroidery.
With the support of her family, and her mother’s experience in self promotion and booking, Deanna’s performance resume grew from local churches and weddings to performances at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, private events at Jerry Bruckheimer’s estate in Kentucky and even music ministry at the Premier Iglesia Bautista in Mexico. Her first solo harp CDs were released during this time under her own label, which helped gain momentum with 130 performances each year and 4,000+ album sales by the time she was 17 years old.
As a natural performer, it was only a matter of time before Deanna found herself in front of the camera as a model and actress. After moving to Nashville in 2008 she signed on with a talent agency and has since appeared in several music videos, print ads, commercials and films.
The experience and interest Deanna had in fashion design as a young girl surfaced again in 2011 when she decided to begin developing The Loveland Collection. This collection features a unique line of clothing, jewelry, handbags & accessories and proceeds will go to help women who struggle with anorexia, self-harm, addictions, abuse & unplanned pregnancy.
While she is very entrepreneurial and has found several ways to express herself creatively, Deanna still holds music nearest to her heart. In November 2011 she released her debut Christmas single, “If I Could Make it Snow” followed by her EP entitled, “Inner Perfection” released January 2012.
“For me ‘Inner Perfection’ wasn’t just about who I am as an artist… I think it exposes my passion to see others set free from whatever limitations they’ve had on their life. Whether it’s something as simple as peer pressure to be average or something more serious like an addiction or self-harm, it’s a box people don’t have to be in. With these songs I kinda wanted to say ‘hey, you can always rise above it and live your fullest potential.’”
Deanna has proven she is living her fullest potential with a rare talent, business sense and the ability to capture the hearts of fans everywhere. Whether it’s in music, film or fashion, it’s clear that she has a long career ahead of her as she continues to grow as an individual and as an artist.
