Chef Dee & The Taste Experience

Chef Dee, also known as D’Andre Pyke, born and raised in Arlington,TX. Singer, Rapper; but also a Chef since he was 9 years old. "Dee" studied culinary arts throughout middle school, high school and into Culinary School of Fort Worth in 2016, but just one year in, he was removed from classes due to attendance issues. With his culinary dreams on the backburner, but ever a part of his identity, Chef Dee is a now a figure in his community and dedicated to the growth of the Arlington, Texas music scene. He has performed with a host of extremely talented musicians such as: Cure for Paranoia, Ladi, Artemis Funk, Preach the Poet, Justin King, Chilldren of Indigo and a host of others.

Chef’s father, Darrell Pyke, is his biggest inspiration through his journey. A man who had always sang to uplift spirits, he passed away in 2011, early in Dee’s high school career. Having loved freestyling and singing with his friends, Chef knows he can go far in music, and hopes to honor his singing father in doing so.

Above all, Chef Dee’s goal is to create a welcoming experience for every human to come together, feel the love, enjoy your meal and enjoy the music.
