Denvah is a singer/songwriter/musician from Rockhampton, Central Queensland. Since her introduction to the Australian country music scene in 2018, Denvah has created a stir across the industry.

Denvah’s “natural effervescence is just something you can’t extinguish” (Felicity Urquhart), making her live performances a must-see. With a voice that was made for country music, her rich tone and pitch perfect accuracy is an absolute delight to the ears. “it just blew us away; she’s such a talent, such a natural songwriter…” (Brad Butcher).
With a background in dance and musical theatre from the age of 4, the stage truly is Denvah’s second home. Ever since her earliest beginnings as a performer, the joy and sparkle that she radiated from the stage has remained with her. In 2015, at the age of 15, Denvah began to gain experience in the local music scene, regularly performing at open mic nights. Her reputation as an outstanding live vocalist quickly grew and she began to receive gig offers from venues around the local region. In 2018, Denvah attended her first Tamworth Country Music Festival, the highlight of which was performing ‘Sleep on it’ with Busby Marou at their sold out Longyard Hotel show. In November 2018, Denvah won the ‘One Hot Night’ battle of the bands competition and as a result was invited to open the ‘One Hot Night’ concert which featured artists including Busby Marou, Pete Murray, Ian Moss and Tia Gostelow. In 2019 Denvah recorded her self-penned debut ep ‘Just the Beginning’, at a makeshift studio at the Shell House on Great Keppel Island with Nathan Davis and Jeremy Marou. Additional instrumentation, mixing and engineering was later provided by Matt Fell at Love Hz Studios.
Denvah then burst on to the Australian country music scene in 2020 with the much anticipated release of ‘Just the Beginning’. In the months following her sold out launch concert which also featured Brad Butcher and Felicity Urquhart, Denvah’s first two singles ‘My Favourite’ and ‘Do it Again’, reached #6 and #7 respectively on the Australian Country Hottest 50 chart and both remained in the top ten for multiple weeks. Her songs received extensive radio play on both commercial and community radio stations across the country including Kix Country, ABC Country, Tamworth 88.9 and Triple M Country, to name a few. ‘My Favourite’ went on to become the 8th most played song on Tamworth’s 88.9 FM for 2020, and the 26 th most played song on Kix Country in the same year.
