Named the ‘Best Rising Star Male Vocalist’ in Downbeat magazine, DeSare has lived up to this distinction by winning critical and popular acclaim for his concert performances throughout North America and abroad. From jazz clubs to Carnegie Hall to Las Vegas headlining with Don Rickles and major symphony orchestras, DeSare has brought a fresh take on classic old-school-class jazz.
DeSare has three top ten Billboard jazz albums under his belt and has been featured on the CBS Early Show, NPR, A Prairie Home Companion and the Today Show, and in addition, his music has been posted by social media celebrity juggernaut, George Takei. He has also collaborated with Youtube icons Postmodern Jukebox.
He is also an accomplished award-winning composer who not only won first place in the USA Songwriting Contest, but wrote the theme song for the motion picture My Date With Drew and several broadcast commercials. More recently he has composed the full soundtracks for Love Always, Santa and Lifetime’s Nanny Nightmare on Hallmark Channel.
DeSare’s forthcoming appearances include the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, the Seattle Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Grand Rapids Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Smith Center in Las Vegas.
