Vocalist, pianist and composer Denise Mangiardi is originally from New York and spent several years in London before settling in East Sussex.
Denise’s work comprises jazz, folk, blues and latin music combined with her experience as a classical composer and arranger, leading to a unique and eclectic mix of original songs and classics. Her writing and playing takes inspiration from songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Nora Jones and Sade.
Denise performs at such prestigious venues as Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho, but she is excited to be playing close to her adoptive home in Nutley. We feel equally privileged to have her play at Festival Club.
