What’s Irish rap? It’s a sound that you can’t predict… In her breakthrough track Copper Bullet, Denise Chaila succinctly described the thriving hip-hop scene in Ireland. The fact that Chaila was able to convey the sentiment of a nation in one perfect line displays both her depth and skill. It perhaps partially explains why, following the release of her debut EP Dual Citizenship in February 2019, Denise has become one of the most in-demand MCs in Ireland and beyond.

On the live-front, during the past year Denise has performed at the Barbican Centre in London, the National Concert Hall in Dublin and the Black Box Theatre, Galway - all three as part of the critically-acclaimed Imagining Ireland series, and made a number of summer festival appearances last year at the likes of Body & Soul, All Together Now, Electric Picnic and Other Voices Dingle. In February 2020, she headlined St. Michael’s Church for Other Voices Mayo in a televised performance for RTÉ 2. A full-length musical project will be released later in 2020 on narolane records. Already, with just a single solo EP under her belt, Denise Chaila has been tipped as one to watch worldwide by the likes of NPR (USA), BBC (UK) and RTÉ (Ireland). On top of this, actor Cillian Murphy interviewed Chaila for Port Magazine, she wrote a piece that was included in Kevin Barry’s seminal arts anthology Winter Papers, and featured on the cover of The Irish Times’ ‘50 people to watch in 2020’.
