Denise Perrier has spent most of her long career performing in the San Francisco Bay Area and touring Europe, Latin America and Asia. With her latest CD, Denise Perrier and the Novosibirsk Philharmonic Orchestra, she has moved to a higher level of artistry and popularity. Harkening back to the time when a singer told the story and left the rest to the instrumentalists, Denise has a very welcoming straight-ahead style, concentrating on the standards and adding blues and Latin for variety. Her musical configuration, Denise connects with audiences - that’s her forte. She is known as “the voice with a heart.”
Blessed with a rich contralto voice and the ability to sing ballads and blues with equal artistry, Denise has performed in the theatrical revue "In the House of the Blues," portraying Bessie Smith; and the vaudeville “One Mo’ Time.” She was featured in the Grammy-nominated CD, Color Me Blue with Brother Jack McDuff, and, in addition to the latest one, has produced four CDs: The Second Time Around (2008), I Wanna Be Loved (1997), also with Houston Person, and East Meets West (2001) which includes sides performed in Russia.
