She's the 'real deal', and in my mind, she ranks in the very upper eschelon of modern vocal artists.
Brad Stone, Music Director KSJS-FM
Denise Donatelli beyond a shadow of a doubt establishes herself as one of the brightest vocal stars on the horizon. 'What Lies Within' is a recording of astounding depth, with exciting arrangements by pianist-producer Geoffrey Keezer and imaginative performances by all involved.

Donatelli will move and groove you. What Lies Within? Talent swing and a heartfelt way with word.
