In 2004 Deana broke new ground as an author with her best-selling memoir "Memories Are Made of This, Dean Martin Through His Daughters Eye's"In 2005, after Deana completed her sold-out "Deana Sings Dino" international concert tour, she was eager to return to the studio and record a new album.

In 2006, Deana released "Memories Are Made Of This," her top-selling CD of Standards and Jazz. It remained on the Top 10 charts for over 40 weeks. Deana then launched her phenomenally successful "Memories Are Made Of This" international concert tour.

2008 found Deana at Capitol Studios, in Hollywood, California, working on her next album.

In the summer of 2009, Deana released her newest CD "Volare" and opened on the Billboard Heat Seeker chart at #7, Billboard's Top Jazz Albums chart at #22, and on iTunes Top 10 chart. Deana loved working at Capitol Studios where she collaborated on this project with legendary multi-Grammy Award-winning engineer Al Schmitt, and her producer John Griffeth.Following the release of her new album, Deana will embark on the international "Volare Concert Tour."

Deana's desire to continue her father's legacy and support of children's charitable causes led to her being the driving force behind the annual Dean Martin Festival. All proceeds from this event fund the Dean Martin Music Scholarships.

Ms. Martin proudly announced that her book, "Memories Are Made Of This, Dean Martin Through His Daughter's Eyes" is being made into a movie, directed by actor Joe Mantegna with screenplay written by actor/writer/television host Bonnie Hunt and staring Jennifer Love Hewitt.
