Denitia is an indie-pop artist based in Rockaway Beach, NY. Hailed as “the epitome of soulful,”

by The Fader, the singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist is known for her dreamy

genre-melding solo project that expands upon her past work in indie r&b duo denitia and sene.

A few years ago, Denitia moved out to The Rockaways, a quiet beach community at the

outermost edge of NYC, and released a solo EP under her middle name, ADESUWA. She then

found herself turning further inward for inspiration. A stepping stone to her re-emergence as a

solo artist, Denitia dropped all the band names and aliases to continue recording and

performing under her first name.

Denitia released the Ceilings EP in Summer '17, blending dream pop, electronic soundscapes,

and her distinct, soulful vocals. Ceilings attracted acclaim from The Guardian, Village Voice,

Pitchfork, Stereogum, and Afropunk for its bold, genre-melding sounds.

She spent the beginning of the following year releasing a series of singles exploring the far

reaches of her ethereal pop sound, culminating in the release of her EP Be There - a statement

collection of songs showcasing the breadth and versatility of Denitia’s pop songwriting with a

breathtaking suite of four powerful tracks that move from ballads to house to dancehall with


This year has seen Denitia collaborating with multi-instrumentalist and DJ, Quantic on the lead

single from his latest album. “You Used to Love Me” was featured on Apple Music’s Best of the

Week and was on rotation for several weeks on BBC6 playlists.

Denitia’s newest album, Touch of the Sky, will be released on November 8th, 2019.

Produced largely from 6 am sessions

in her studio on the beach, the album is a cinematic ode to nostalgia and the alchemy of love.
