Deshaun Sequence 2 – The Birth of 2.0

DeShaun Riddick was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1986. DeShaun took an interest in piano at an early age of 5 years old. It all started with his grandmother’s place. Whenever his parents went to work or on vacation or even just visiting his grandmother, he and his siblings were dropped off there to stay. Being bored and not having anything to do besides play outside, he found himself often making instruments out of what was ever laying within his reach from bucket drums to ukulele from boxes or Chinese food cartons.

One day while going through his normal hunt for musical instrument materials. DeShaun found a piano bench that was hidden by bags or clothing items on it . He climbed up and sat down and lifted the cover off a baby grand piano from 1975. Although out of tune this was the beginning of his musical journey. It was here where some of his most earliest musical talents were discovered for piano.

In 2009 uniting with his biological father, Paul ” Sequence ” Ferguson of Guru’s Jazzmatazz and also a 15 yr Vet. and master of Shotokan Karate, DeShaun was working on his debut album. DeShaun had his debut performance on Fios National Television for Mike’s Positive People, a weekly news segment . DeShaun has performed at well known establishments such as Tabu Night Club & the Vetro’s Restaurant & many more.

Now he celebrates The Birth of 2.0 at CDBaby.
