Vocalist & pianist Dena is making Don Heckman's (LA Times) prediction come true that she "...has all the vocal skills needed to rise to the top level of her field". She is in demand, her passion is stronger and more visible than ever, and she consistently delights her ever-growing worldwide audiences. Alan Bargebuhr of Cadence magazine succinctly summed up the reason why... simply, she is a "...stunningly talented pianist/vocalist."
It's no small accomplishment to be thought of as "The most creative and
compelling singer-pianist since Shirley Horn", but that's exactly how
Joel Siegel of the Washington City Paper described Dena DeRose. If she
comes to your city and you want to catch the show, go early, because the
room is going to be packed. She not only awes her audiences and music
critics with her facility on the piano and her vocal talent but, as
Richard Scheinin of the San Jose Mercury aptly put it, "... she exudes
joy ... what soul!"
