Denise is a passionate Singer/Songwriter who performs quite extensively as a solo artist for charity events (Relay For Life, Worldfest, South Central Farm Aid, Wo+men 4 a cause, World Vegan Day), as well as in some of the most respected venues worldwide including: The Cavern Club (UK), The Dublin Castle (Camden, UK), Under The Boardwalk (Sheffield, UK), The Bitter End (NYC), Borders Bookstores (CA), The El Rey Theatre(CA), Caneel Bay (USVI) and more.

Denise was influenced by art at a very early age. Her mother was an artist. They didn't have much, but music, art and the theatre have always been a part of her life. Denise began singing from the time she could talk, dancing from the time she could walk, and writing from the time she could form a sentence. High School was where Denise got a taste of performing as an actress which led to Denise enrolling at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and at The Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre Training Unit. Being onstage is a natural place for Denise. She's performed in many Theatrical Productions (NYC), Improv Shows (NYC), which led to Feature Films (Carlito's Way, Jungle Fever, Malcolm X), TV (Law & Order, SNL, MTV,) as well as dancing in Music Videos (Kenny Chesney's "How Forever Feels").

Having grown up between New York City and the Virgin Islands, Denise proudly incorporates all of her experiences as an actress, singer, guitarist, painter, in her life as well as her music. She has travelled extensively living in places like Scotland, London, the US Virgin Islands, and now Los Angeles. These experiences have led Denise to be a spirit that is deep, pure and real. Her songs speak of her positive outlook of love, life and the pursuit of happiness. Denise says "My purpose is to share my life, help spread Peace, joy, love and understanding through my music. Thanks to my mom who raised my sister and I on her own; for showing us through her challenges that if you believe, work hard, focus, treat others as you want to be treated, stay true to yourself and your dreams, and never give up...everything that I have experienced has led me to be the woman I am today. My music is all that I am!"
