“American singer, songwriter, producer Denise Marsa is no stranger to the public eye. Marsa moved to New York and began her musical career by forming her own band. Live Forever is Marsa’s second album that has a smooth mellow sound with a hint of country vibe. Marsa’s music is relatable and holds so much depth in each lyric. The first song on the album is “Time to Drive” the song is full of imagery and depth. This song leads the same tempo and beat for the rest of the album. Marsa’s has the ability to paint an image and story with each track …Marsa wrote each song and she pours her heart in the lyrics. Her talent and captivating voice shines through each track.” – Celebrity Cafe’

Jersey girl Denise Marsa was born in Trenton and currently lives in Manhattan. She got her first taste of fame (kind of!) when singer-songwriter Dean Friedman invited her to sing a duet with him on his second album which was called “Well, Well, Said The Rocking Chair.” The duet was “Lucky Stars,” which is probably best-described as a Broadwayesque musical animated discussion between a man and a woman. In late 1978 that duet hit #3 on the UK singles chart. Jersey Girls Sing: read full article
“I know when I’m listening to something that’s beyond good, because I get chills running up and down my spine. ‘SELF’ by Denise Marsa is one of those spine-tingling albums. Marsa is one of the most talented songwriters I’ve come across in a long time. Having collaborated on numerous projects previously, Marsa finally gets a chance to grab the spotlight. She delivers her songs with both passion and power and the mainly acoustic arrangements are full of melodies. ‘SELF’, however is not about gimmicks; it’s about great songs. Songs that make you wake up in a good mood, get you singing at the top of your voice in the shower and keep you humming to yourself all day.” – Nicole Powers, Rocklove
“An exquisite voice and a tremendous sense of songwriting make this acoustic/folk rock release a true gem. Denise Marsa’s debut release is one of the best 10 releases of the year… Period!”- Stavros Moschopoulos, FAOS, United Nations Magazine- Rome, Italy
