Listen to Deni and other great artists on exclusive Spotify playlists.
Deni (Denisa Gajarska - vocals, Ľuboš Šoltés - guitar, backing vocals) formed November 2015 after meeting at Košice’s Music Lab project.
They soon realised they had the right musical chemistry to write and perform the songs they had been hearing in their heads for a while. Both had been involved in other bands in the Košice region (Denny with Flacon, Lubo with The Ringtones), but together they developed a specific aim - to produce pop-based music full of Blues, Soul and Groove.
There are similarities between Gajarska and the new breed of soul divas (Adele, Winehouse, etc). She has breathtaking technique and her understanding of American Blues and Soul is deep. There is steeltown grit in their music -a bold honesty, that balances against a force of nature, a wild child from the mountains and forests that ring the area for all her blues and pop awareness, they are very much a part of Slovakian folk tradition. Their songs are also stories.
Their repertoire - still new displays an ability to cover that distance between powerful introspection to foot-tapping pop groove, which many soulsters aim for but rarely achieve. It’s early days, but the pair already have a formula for very engaging and exciting songwriting and performance, either in the studio with a careful selection of choice musicians or as a duo debuting their music on the European music scene. Deni is going places!
