With her original and warm voice, she is capable of giving voice to various musical genres such as pop, jazz, blues, soul, and country. The artist is already well known in Italy and Europe for her vocal timbre and her artistic sweetness. Her song ‘Love come with me’ was chosen, among other pieces, by the Prince of Monaco as a soundtrack to his and Miss Carlene Wittstock’s wedding.
Dagmar is also one of the few singers to perform in multiple languages (English, Italian, Spanish, French, Spanish, Portuguese German) with excellent diction. With her band Dagmar’s Collective, she released the album DW’s in 2013. In October 2016, the second album ‘Find a way’ was published. This contains solely original tracks.

Some of the songs written by Dagmar have been interpreted and sung by well-known artists such as Simona Bencini (Dirotta Su Cuba), Walter Ricci, Ely Bruna and Alan Scaffardi.
Dagmar was born in a village in Lower Saxony, Germany, close to the border with the Netherlands. She is the daughter of a German mother and a Dutch father. However, she only met her father for the first time when she was twenty years old. Nevertheless, she has definitely inherited his love of music; he was a DJ in the 70s, and what do you know?... Dagmar herself has a huge collection of CDs and vinyl records. Thanks to this, Dagmar discovered her love for jazz music.
Dagmar started singing in a school choir. Then, whilst still very young, she started performing in various bands. Things changed all of sudden when she encountered Marc Coles. A lyrical baritone, Marc changed her life, when after hearing her sing he casually commented ‘You do not have to imitate, but rather feel what you sing and interpret it accordingly’. This casual observation proved to be a turning point in Dagmar’s artistic life and she’s never looked back.
In addition to music, Dagmar Segbers also loves different cultures and foreign languages. For instance, in addition to German, she speaks fluent Italian and English and is currently working on mastering Spanish. For Dagmar embracing different languages and diverse cultures only serves to enrich people. Moreover, she’s proud of the way she is an advocate for diversity in all areas of her life, not just her music.
