Kiley Dean (born on April 12, 1982 in Alma, Arkansas) is a female pop\R&B singer who first appeared in the music scene in the early 2000s.

At the age of seven, Kiley & her family moved to Orlando, Florida. Her experience singing in church & school led to her singing back-up for Britney Spears on her “…Baby One More Time” and “Oops! I Did it Again World” tours.

In 2002, she signed to Timbaland’s short-lived record label Beat Club Records.
imageIn May of 2003, Kiley released her debut single “Make Me a Song” which peaked at #99 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #54 on Billboard’s Hot R&B\Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart, staying on the chart for 10 weeks.
imageKiley’s follow-up single “Who Will I Run To” peaked at #64 on Billboard’s Hot Singles Sales chart and managed to peak at #39 on the Radio & Records CHR\Pop Chart. It also appeared on music countdown shows such as “American Top 40 with Casey Kasem” and the “Rick Dees Weekly Top 40.”

The song was remixed in mid-January of 2004 in order to save its spins, but it received limited airplay and failed to achieve any success.

Because of the low success of Kiley’s first two singles, her debut album “Simple Girl” was never released, although practically all the songs from her unreleased album appear on YouTube.

During 2003 and 2004, Kiley provided guest vocals on songs by artists such as Timbaland and Bubba Sparxx. In 2005, she began working on a new album under the name “Blue Eyes” and released the single “Lookin’ For Love” to radio.

In 2007, she signed with Mathew Knowles (the father of Beyonce & Solange Knowles)’ record label Music World Entertainment & was supposed to release the album “Changes,” but she left the label after six months.

In 2008, Kiley joined Madonna on her “Sticky & Sweet” tour as a backup vocal, replacing Madonna’s long-time backing singer Donna DeLory (who was pregnant at the time).

In 2010, Kiley recorded remixes of cover versions by artists such as Usher, 50 Cent, Ludacris, B.o.B. and Snoop Dogg which became available on her Soundcloud and YouTube accounts.

In 2011, Kiley joined Matthew Morrison and New Kids on the Block on their tours as a backup singer. In 2012, she sang backup for Madonna on her “MDNA” tour.

These days, Kiley appears to still be active in the music business. She is currently working on a new EP as of 2014.
