Details:
~ Composer ~ Pianist ~ Recording Artist ~ Music Therapist ~
Love of music began in the dawn of life for this Missouri-born artist. Her first inspiration was her father who is a self-taught pianist and songwriter. (He is at the piano with her on the photo gallery page of her website.) Before long, a spark of fascination lit an intrinsic musical presence within her and by the age of four, Denise was playing by ear; at five, she began studying privately and performed, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” at her first recital. Music became a natural way of expression, and she wrote her first song at the age of fourteen on her Wurlitzer spinet. From “Hey Jude” to the spirit of the classical masters, feelings, experiences, and nature, a light of inspiration brings life to songs and compositions, rooting her into the musical soil.

Denise’s most recent music news is her new CD, “Something You Dream Of…”, produced by Will Ackerman, Founder of Windham Hill and Grammy Award Winning artist. Throughout her life as a songwriter, pianist, music therapist, and instructor, her determination and a bit of synchronicity has led her toward the right road. In January of 2006, she sent her demo CD to Will at Imaginary Road Studios, and received the answer that brought her dream closer into focus. Will became her producer, and for the months prior to the studio recording at Imaginary Road Studios in September 2006, Will provided guidance and inspiration for Denise, expanding her expression on her instrument, the piano. She is very grateful to say that Will and his guitar are beautifully present on track 3, Green Mountain Meadows, track 9, Why, and track 10, West River of the new CD. Other celebrated artists are Eugene Friesen, Grammy Award winning cellist, Jill Haley on English horn, Derrik Jordan, percussionist, Steve Schuch on violin, David Weiss on clarinet, Noah Wilding, vocalist, T-Bone Wolk on bass, and Imaginary Road’s Grammy Award winning engineer, Corin Nelsen.

There are always a few musical goals on her list, including one day being part of writing music for film, collaborating with or writing for a famous vocalist, and altruistic yearnings, such as charity events and benefiting others through her music. “My mission is to move and delight the world with my music. Since music has a miraculous ability to express, it can be very healing; emotionally, physically, and spiritually, whether you are the listener, the musician, or the vessel of its creation. And it’s a really wonderful feeling when people of all ages tell me that they love to listen my music – it validates and tells me this is one of the things I’m called to do!”

(Scheduling of promotional concerts for the new CD, “Something You Dream Of” is underway!) Some of the places that Denise has performed include: Borders Books and Music, St. Louis, Missouri; Radio KDHX-FM, Live Audience recording for “Focal Point’s” Food for the Hungry, St. Louis, one of several recordings from that station. The Grandel Ballroom “Suite 16” CD Release Concert 2001, St. Louis; Composed music for “Soundisctributors” a St. Louis retail company’s training video. Other Personal Appearances - Generations Concert Theater, St. Louis; Coffee with the Stars, St. Louis; The Wildflower Restaurant, St. Louis; Glen Oak Church, St. Peters; Ericcson’s Restaurant on the Pier, California; Landsdowne Arms Restaurant and Hotel, Kenmare, Ireland--and various churches and private parties throughout California and Missouri.

In addition to writing, performing music, and teaching, Denise earned a Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy from Maryville University, St. Louis. Over the years, she has applied music therapy techniques to cases of autism, speech, stress, and physical impairments, as well as the use of music for relaxation and meditation. "I have seen several breakthroughs through music alone and when used with other therapies, such as speech, physical, and psychological.”

Excerpts from the Cutting Room Floor (!)
Sometimes during grade school days, when the nun would leave the room, the kids would ask Denise to play the upright piano. One day, one of the nuns heard “boogie woogie” music down the hallway and when the she entered the room, Denise wasn’t sure what would happen...the nun smiled and asked her to play for the upcoming 8th grade graduation ceremony for the school. Denise immediately accepted and the kids cheered. She played, “Morning Has Broken” by Cat Stevens, by candlelight (which blew out though luckily she had memorized the music) and had a great performance!

Throughout most of her childhood and teenage years she traveled to gigs with her father, observing, playing duets with him, and filling in during breaks. Though she and her dad performed together for years, they are of two different styles all their own. People would often comment to him at gigs, “play that funky music white boy”!

Some of the places that Denise has performed include: Television, Radio and CD’s- “Topics” and “Acoustic Café” television shows, St. Louis, Missouri; Live Audience recording for “Focal Point’s” Food for the Hungry, Radio KDHX-FM, St. Louis, one of several recordings from that station. The Grandel Ballroom “Suite 16” CD Release Concert 2001, St. Louis; Composed music for “Soundisctributors” a St. Louis retail company’s training video. Personal Appearances - Generations Concert Theater, St. Louis; Borders Books and Music, St. Louis; Coffee with the Stars, St. Louis; The Wildflower Restaurant, St. Louis; Glen Oak Church, St. Peters; Eric Ericcson’s on the Pier, Ventura, California; Landsowne Arms, Kenmare, Ireland--and various private parties throughout California and Missouri.
