Recently I received two Deni Newton music tracks, Imagine and One Dream, to play on my Durham Dales Radio Show. I was knocked out! Her voice is absolutely stunning. So stunning I was hypnotized and almost missed my cue to play the next song. And, the words - written by Marilyn Berglas - really grab you.
Deni, now living in Omaha Ne., started her singing career early in Tulsa OK., where she had a recording contract with Shelter Records. Currently she is part of the multi platinum composer/lyricist Marilyn Berglas world team of music (cEmerald Lion Music) and working closely with Marilyn on all of her songs including several co-written with Harvey Mason of FourPlay. She is also recording for Marilyn’s Italian and Argentinian song writing partners.

Marilyn has been recorded by Johnny Mathis and Deneice Williams, Billy Preston and has well over a hundred songs recorded internationally. She stopped writing for twenty years to pursue a performer career. She played at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel for six years (I actually visited the hotel while Marilyn played there, now that’s what I call a coincidence) and has played for almost everyone in entertainment, Christopher Plummer, Chevy Chase, Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, etc.
Marilyn began writing again about sixteen months ago . . . after googling herself she was amazed to see that her songs had survived the test of time . . . and from that moment it has been music 24/7
This extremely talented duo met on facebook and the very first time Marilyn heard Deni’s vocals, she just knew Deni was the one to sing Imagine, a song she had written some twenty one years ago for a movie project that didn’t go into actual production. Imagine had been sitting on a shelf, so to speak, waiting for the right person to come along and that person is Deni. Now the song has been reborn.
I asked Marilyn how they manage to work together living so far away from each other.
She said, ‘I record a track in my studio in LA . . . Deni gets it and we work on it via phone and chat on facebook. When it’s there she sends it back to the studio where I vocal edit and master it.’ Look out for a forthcoming album and I understand a Christmas one is in the making too.
I asked Marilyn if they would be open to perform at gay events and she said, ‘We have been working solely on the recording end so far but are open to performing at gay events in the future . . . that would be great.’
Deni is #1 OMAHA at reverbnation with over 10,600 plays and being played on many stations.
Marilyn said, ‘We are just thrilled with the love and support we are receiving.’
