THE PASS by Denise Marsa
Songs & Stories – An original music project featuring anecdotes and vignettes set against a background of Denise’s original compositions.
Thanks for visiting my website. This website is where I share continuing news about my music career. I have been singing, writing and making music for decades. I’m a self-taught keyboardist and a lover of songs. In the late 90’s I joined the indie revolution and began releasing my own records on a label I started KeyMedia Group. In the spring of 2016 I started my association with BMG Rights Management.
In 2010 I started mentoring young artists to help them navigate the complex music business. I’m also known as the other voice on Dean Friedman’s duet LUCKY STARS and the dance hit from THE FLIRTS HELPLESS (You Took My Love).
I am exited to share my newest project THE PASS. It’s a series of short stories about my adventures with my original songs weaving in and out; songs I have written while living in New York City, London and Los Angeles. The show is currently in development and we plan to start THE PASS on tour in 2018.
THE PASS SYNOPSIS: The story of Denise Marsa’s development as a musician, artist, and individual is told in this original music project featuring short stories recounted against a background of her original compositions. Travel with Denise as she starts her career towards the end of the 70’s through the highly volatile and emotional 80’s continuing on through the start of the tech driven 90’s into the 21st century. From her start in her West Village studio apartment dating from 1810, to London to West Hollywood and back again, Denise shares her stories. Meet Denise the explorer, innovator, a woman drenched in tenacity; playing on her own terms.
From pop star, to record label owner, artist manager and producer, lover and partner, to publicist and marketer, her life and music are expressed through laughter, joy, disappointment, passion and power. She hopes to inspire her audience to always be true to their own voices and to have the courage to sing out loud. It all started with Denise sneaking into the New York University Department of Music and Music Education practice rooms.
