Welcome!

Singing the beautiful jazz standards of Hoagy Carmichael, Irving Berlin, the Gershwin brothers, Cole Porter and so many more, Denise's warm vocal stylings hint at inspiration from Billie Holliday, Julie London, Ella and Diana Krall. 

Surrounding herself with the finest jazz musicians in the state, Denise and the crew provide a wonderful and eclectic mix of the great standards to the more contemporary sounds of Norah Jones, blended in with a dash of funky rhythm and blues.

Denise has been performing and entertaining audiences for over a decade and released her CD, Just One of Those Things in 2013.  

Denise can also be found singing the classics and authentic arrangements from
Ella, Anita O'Day, Peggy Lee, and Helen O'Connell with John Greiner's SwingShift Big Band.

"Singing is a passion of mine that I love to share.
It is always a pleasure to perform with my very talented friends,
and I look forward to seeing you at one of our next performances!"
~ Denise

    Denise-- I do a weekly jazz show Thursday afternoons and have been playing tracks from "Just One of Those Things". I thoroughly enjoy listening. Your voice and style remind me very much of vocalist Polly Podewell. I play her music as well. She's an ex-classmate of my wife's. (Hence the CD signed "Love, Polly). She does some good tunes, some that you might care to try at some point. Keep enjoying the music. There's nothing better. Bill
