THE "BEAUTY LIED" FAQ
(the top frequently asked questions)

WHEN WAS THE CD, "BEAUTY LIED" RELEASED?HOW LONG DID IT TAKE?
'Beauty Lied" was released in the summer of 2002, it took 3 years to track/mix and get it ready for release

IS IT TRUE THAT DENISE PRODUCED/MIXED/RECORDED HER OWN ALBUM?/ DON'T SELF PRODUCED ALBUMS SUCK?/
WHY{HOW} DID SHE DO THAT?

Yes, It is true,.. and no, not all self-produced albums suck.
WHY?
"Because she can" is the short answer

The long answer is, that Denise got tired of working with producers/engineers who felt they "knew" what her music should sound like or decided the only way she could "make it" was by making sure she sounded like all the other girls,..she says,
"there was a time, after an episode with EMI Publishing,..long story,... I realized, You know, I could do this on my own,..I have a studio at my disposal,..all I need is a band"
and there it came to pass
The short answer on "How",..Denise explains, " We tracked it this way,..Jay and Rich were in the live room, I was in the control room,..We would get the basic tracks done and then I would overdub my parts later on,..I did have some help,..there are about 5 assistant engineers listed on the CD who manned the 2" machine remote (yes, the CD was recorded and mixed from 2" tape),.."

WHAT'S WITH THE COVER ART?/WHO DID THE COVER ART?/ IS THIS ONE OF THOSE "MAN-HATING" "fried green tomato" WOMEN'S LIB ALBUMS/ I DON'T GET IT,..BEAUTY LIED,...?"

The cover art was created by visual artist Jonathon Mayer (no, not the songwriter).
It was originally a paper mache piece with the figure of the woman cut out of the newspaper. The piece is called "Woman in newspaper" and is part of a series of artwork using the same techniques/imagery. The back cover art is also by Jonathon Mayer.

How did the title come about? well,.Denise was racking her brain with ideas for a title,..beauty lied was somewhere at the end of the list,.. it was her friend, Maya Azucena, who convinced her that "Beauty Lied" was the perfect title,..

What is the concept??
Denise says, " "Beauty Lied" to me, is about finding a safe place from the outside world; a safe place within yourself where you can believe that you are beautiful and your feelings/opinions are valid. Too often these days, women especially, are expected to believe they are inferior if they don't have the right body type or hair style or makeup, or salary, or occupation,.. which is so surface and so ridiculous. Beauty Lied is mainly about my internal fight to find that feeling of freedom and self-love rather than self-loathing. While there are some tunes that could be considered to have a "man hating" vibe,..It's more based on relationships I've had that made me feel ugly or weak,.. and in order to feel good, I had to purge the ugliness or hurt. Too many people view negative things happening in a "Why me" sort of context,..I find when bad things happen it's a chance to learn how strong you are/can be,..I've heard from some fans that they were inspired to "be a better woman" or that they needed to "take control of their lives" because of a few songs on the CD. That's the absolute best compliment I've ever gotten, I feel blessed to know that through a song's lyric, I could in some way help other women (and men) to make positive changes for themselves.
