Profile Information

About Me:
Having been in his passion for a minute now, producer, arranger, vocalist and songwriter Deonis ”Pumah” Cook first began singing at the tender age of four. He developed his musical techniques by listening and emulating certain songs he heard and would then play them back on a Casio keyboard owned by his mother. Though, it wasn’t until he joined the Grammy Award-winning collective, God's Property, that he truly began to realize his musical potential. As part of GP, Deonis was mentored by a multitude of talented artists and individuals. With such an enormous and overwhelming amount of gifted people surrounding him, he quickly learned to act as a sponge, soaking up every bit of information he could and taking advantage of the opportunity placed before him. Deonis has had the privilege of working with many artists such as Kirk Franklin, Musiq Soulchild, Kiera "Kiki" Sheard, Fred Hammond, Jontez, Darwin Hobbs, Eykah Badu, Kim Burrell, Geno Young, Eric Roberson, Uncle Sam and emcee Brownlion. Now in the works is his sophmore release in mid-November promises to be a follow up classic to his previous work on "Kat Phood". Moving away from the instrumental format, Deonis presents his incomparable vocal ability as well as musical arrangements to create an experience worth waiting for. "
