Denitia (former projects: denitia & sene, ADESUWA) is a singer, a songwriter, a guitarist and producer who brings together pop, R&B, electronic and alternative music in a dreamy way that’s hard to pin down...and that’s all right with her.

Finally landing in New York City via Texas, then Nashville, Brooklyn is where Denitia took to the synth and electronic sounds that would become the backbone of future musical projects including indie r&b darling, denitia and sene. That duo project toured extensively, releasing 2 EPs and 2 LPs, and then working with Red Bull and Rinse FM. They attracted acclaim from press like the Fader, Rolling Stone, SPIN, and the NY Times.

Buoyed by the group’s success and eager to work on different sounds, in 2015 Denitia moved to The Rockaways, a quiet beach community at the outermost edge of NYC, and released a dream pop project under an alias, her middle name, ADESUWA. A stepping stone to the re-emergence of Denitia as a solo artist, Denitia then dropped all the band names and aliases to continue recording and performing as a solo artist, under her first name.

In 2016, she created the Ceilings EP that released in Summer 2017 on Brooklyn boutique label, Styles Upon Styles. Recognized for its bold break-out genre-melding sounds, Ceilings attracted acclaim from The Guardian, Village Voice, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Afropunk, among others. The Village Voice said: “Solo projects often involve a certain anxiety, what with the weight of expectation, but Ceilings banishes those concerns from the opening chords.”

Denitia is currently releasing a 2018 series of singles and self-directed videos as a follow-up to the Ceilings EP. 'Never Told You', 'Special', 'One Day' are explorations of the far reaches of Denitia's ethereal soul style, with UK Mag The Line of Best Fit calling her: “...a musician doing something fresh and interesting with the dream-pop genre.”

She is concurrently spending most of her time by the beach finishing her self-produced full length LP, a blend of electro and organic sounds -  808s and verbed-out guitars. The as-of-yet untitled LP is a zoom-in to her personal story and social context peppered with a nostalgic tenderness that can only be described as bridging the gap between r&b and Americana in an electronic soundscape. A much anticipated progression in the story that is Denitia. Follow her wherever you live digitally.
