After much hard work and musical evolution in recent times, DENNI has spent the last few months getting down to business in the Brisbane NO ONE network studio. With a dynamic team fully focussed during the recent COVID-19-studio-lock-down/lock-in situation, DENNI has managed to bring together a set of brilliant collaborations, joining forces with fellow Tassie hip hop mainstay Greeley, Brisbane's Nerve, Adelaide's Lariken and Tassie's AO.
Painting an alluring picture of worlds colliding, intriguing stories of self-determination and insight into the universe of DENNI, RUNAWAYS is the dream of leaving it all behind, chasing your passion and moving with the waves of change. Her first physical release, RUNAWAYS picks up in a fresh and exciting way from where 2019'S Wise Ones EP left off. It's an EP full of fire, with big boom bap beats and powerful, timely lyrics straight to the point.
“Music and art is my deepest expression of self love and a part of my healing,” says DENNI. “As a Tasmanian Aboriginal person growing up in dual communities, it really shaped who I am as a woman and the issues and themes that I write about in my music.”
Starting out as a talented indie folk singer songwriter, DENNI continues to transform; recently taking the exciting twist and leap into the world of Aussie hip hop. Teamed with lush electronic synths and hard hitting beats, DENNI's soulfully smooth vocals and skilful lyrics are jam packed with story and heart.
