Presently, this trans-identified folksinger has relocated to Lewiston, ME to continue sharing new CD “Heartbeat Balloon” as well as working with a non-profit organization called Lots to Gardens. The instrumentation of this CD is Denise’s debut on banjo and a revisitation to piano and guitar. The album was recorded in her bedroom and is a unique lens capturing the importance of localism while applying it to the unsustainable model of our global world. It features Jason Ellis playing bass and doing production on "Techtonic Plates" and "Labyrinth". The rest of the CD was homemade by Denise herself. As with all of Denise’s songs, they are created from the inside out and reveal a level of personal vulnerability that you might only expect to share with a loved one. Heartbeat Balloon, with its lush imagery feels more like visual art than audible. Dave Harper designed the cover and artwork!
