A triple threat from the start, it was clear DENA was destined for stardom from the moment she could move. Born and raised in upstate New York, the rising pop star dominated the competitive dance, gymnastics and cheerleading circuits, in addition to serious vocal training for musical theatre and the stage.
A meeting with producer/manager, Jeff DaBella, opened the door for a successful working relationship and new career direction. In December of 2011 DENA signed to ECP Productions, headed by Earl Cohen, and featuring a team of the same producers and writers behind the launch of Lady Gaga’s Platinum-selling “Fame” album. She is currently writing and recording with Grammy award-winning engineer/producer Earl Cohen (Lady Gaga, Jessica Simpson, Pink, Nelly), Grammy award-winning songwriter/ producer Calvin Gaines (Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston, Destiny’s Child), songwriter/ producer Tom Kafafian (Lady Gaga), producer/engineer Kevin Kumetz, producer/songwriter Chris Paultre (Lupe Fiasco), and David “Pic” Conley (O-Town, Olivia).
With a sound that encapsulates the addiction of pop music and the edge of rock, DENA credits a range of influences from Garbage, Panic at the Disco, and Led Zeppelin to Paramore, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera. Her hard work and dedication to finding her own voice and own sound in the music industry is finally paying off with recently signing a deal with Sono Recording Group who will be releasing her first EP entitled “The One” through their worldwide label deal with Spotify.
