Denisse is a multi-genre singer-songwriter, rapper and producer living in Los Angeles, California.
Years of networking in the gaming industry as a creator allowed her to realize lifelong dreams as a singer-songwriter.

The company first made contact in2017 / 2018 to help launch their first collaboration with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's platform, Hitrecord.
Give it a Try is a jazzy, hip hop tune about perseverance, hope, pain and the loss of humanity experienced since the pandemic began. It’s written from the perspective of an immunosuppressed organ transplant recipient (Denisse Takes) who’s struggle was documented by the New York Times. The song does not go on the attack. It’s meant to inspire reflection and cooperation.
Give it a Try was produced by iD3 in Rennes, France. The vocals and lyrics were put together by Denisse in Los Angeles, California.
The song is currently available to hear on SoundCloud. iD3 and Denisse are hoping to secure label backing before releasing it on all other streaming platforms.
