Denitia is an indie-pop artist based in upstate New York.

Hailed as “the epitome of soulful,” by The Fader, the singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist is known for her dreamy genre-melding solo project that expands upon her past work in indie r&b duo denitia and sene.


A few years ago, Denitia moved out to The Rockaways, a quiet beach community at the outermost edge of NYC, and released a solo EP under her middle name, ADESUWA. She then found herself turning further inward for inspiration. A stepping stone to her re-emergence as a solo artist, Denitia dropped all the band names and aliases to continue recording and performing under her first name.


Denitia released the Ceilings EP in Summer ’17, blending dream pop, electronic soundscapes, and her distinct, soulful vocals. Ceilings attracted acclaim from The Guardian, Village Voice, Pitchfork, Stereogum, and Afropunk for its bold, genre-melding sounds.


She spent the beginning of the following year releasing a series of singles exploring the far reaches of her ethereal pop sound, culminating in the release of her EP Be There – a statement collection of songs showcasing the breadth and versatility of Denitia’s pop songwriting with a breathtaking suite of four powerful new tracks that move from ballads to house to dancehall with ease.


This year has seen Denitia collaborating with multi-instrumentalist and DJ, Quantic on the lead single from his latest album. “You Used to Love Me” was featured on Apple Music’s Best of the Week and was on rotation for several weeks on BBC6 playlists.

Touch of the Sky, released in November, is a fusion of the country music influences from Denitia’s youth and her signature electronic pop sound. Listeners might hear hints of dream-pop and ambient electronica reflecting the guiding inspiration of ethereal acts like Beach House and Cocteau Twins. The album is a reflection on identity, love, youth, and self-evolution anchored in wide sonic soundscapes composed of layered vocals, dreamy synths, and reverb-drenched guitars.
