Denise Parent is a longtime member of The Deadbeats: a renowned, beloved Capital Region/Hudson Valley Grateful Dead cover band, known for their 25 year Albany run of weekly Wednesday nights shows. She is also a founding member of the first all female Grateful Dead Tribute Band, Brown Eyed Women.
Parent just released a new CD of original material with the help of Deadbeats bandmate, Dan Gerken. Parent and Gerken played all the instruments on the CD, and also feature fellow bandmate, Mike Johnson on a couple songs.
Parent approaches her solo songs from a rhythm and drummer perspective; moving it along so the musical bed is always dynamic and charging forward. Her distinct soft, yet powerful vocals and thoughtful lyrics offer listeners a pleasing contrast. Though Parent has an overall folksy vibe, listeners will also enjoy her rock and blues sounds.
