Denise Perrier has built an international reputation performing in festivals, concert halls, jazz clubs, and other jazz venues around the world. Born in Louisiana and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, she grew up among jazz greats.
In her early twenties, Louis Armstrong heard her singing at San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel and hired her for his Las Vegas review. Ms. Perrier went on to tour Western Europe, Latin America, Scandinavia, Russia, and The Far East, performing in such major cities as Paris, Venice, Milan, Helsinki, Moscow, St Petersburg (she was the first non-classical artist to be invited to sing at the Hermitage), Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, San Miguel de Allende, and Guadalajara. She is scheduled for a return engagement at San Miguel De Allende, Mexico, and a trip to Cuba in the near future.
