Denise Kirkland

Denise Kirkland Bio

The sound is new, but is caresses like a familiar memory. It is the straight ahead jazz instrument of DENISE KIRKLAND whose voice is burnished wood that has been polished smoothed by time, made as deep and smoky as a molten volcano. Hers is an earned gift that should only be entrusted to a woman fully grown who has experienced and understands life in all its prismatic permutations.

Her singing career spans over 25 years and you can hear it in her signature and sometimes surprising twists of phrasing. She envelops us in colours that paint our life stories as well as hers. She’s a sonic mirror that both warms and chills as she enchants and entreats us to fully get in touch with ourselves. Whether singing straight ahead jazz or putting unique spins on R&B, Pop and even Country covers, Kirkland takes no prisoners in her bid to make you truly feel.
