"Fun, engaging, youthful, timeless, marvelously touching... Dene Marie reveals a soul filled with beauty and longing. I really enjoyed the songwriting and solid, in-the-pocket performances. The band kicks ass and obviously enjoys itself. I'd love to see this band rock out live. They have a feel and energy that is uplifting and completely convincing. This is real rock and roll!" Roger Fisher - founding guitarist of rock group HEART
With her second CD, 6 Down 6 Up, Dene Marie is showing us her full colors. Her music is still tender, sensitive and purely volcanic, but there's a mature honesty to it now. This songstress has created her own brand of straight-up power pop/rock that is warm, plaintive, aggressive, humorous and loving all together. We are treated to a plethora of styles - Elvis Costello, Crowded House, The Cars, The Runaways, Gladys Knight and the Pips to name a few - in this new set of 12 songs. Never boring, always changing; Dene Marie is not one to disappoint.
