Denarris Music announces that the singer-songwriter has secured a distribution deal with Digital Musicworks International (DMI), making his debut smooth jazz/neo-soul CD "Songs From the Heart Part 1" immediately available for purchase and download by music fans across the globe.
Denarris explained, "To me, the distribution agreement is a win-win contract for both parties. As a writer and an artist, it allows me the creative freedom that I've always wanted."
Denarris' sensational debut CD is comprised of nine songs (eight tracks plus a radio re-mix). "Songs From the Heart Part 1" has received notoriety and public attention including an award nomination, winning a songwriting competition, compilation CD placement, domestic and international radio airplay as well as chart status.
The agreement with DMI releases the CD for digital distribution, eventually making it available in over 125 digital stores in 30 countries worldwide. These distribution channels include such major online retailers as Apple iTunes (representing approximately 70 percent of the global music market), Napster, Real Music Store, Microsoft MSN Music Store and many others. Denarris' CD "Songs From the Heart Part 1" is currently available from Apple iTunes in the R&B/Soul category.
"To land such a major distribution deal is a tremendous accomplishment and asset to the company portfolio, and it speaks volumes as to the high quality of Denarris' music and arrangements," says company spokesperson and Vice President, Carla Crudup. "This type of distribution contract provides instantaneous worldwide exposure for our artist and the music. We are happy to be a part of the digital music revolution."
Born and raised in Joliet, Illinois, 40 miles south of Chicago, Denarris grew up at the crossroads of East and West Coast sensibilities and was exposed to many different styles of music. He credits giants such as Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder with shaping his eclectic style. Influences from masters across the musical spectrum, from Henry Mancini to Spyro Gyra, from Earth Wind and Fire and Tower of Power to Chicago and The Who can be heard in his writing to this day.
