Young, Beautiful and Talented with an effervescent personality, Denyque Dontre lives by the quote “Nulli Secunda” (Latin for “Second to None”), firmly believing that aiming for the top and never settling for less is the only way to achieve ones dreams. At 20 years old, this singer/songwriter has reached a level of musical maturity that is far beyond her years; and with a distinctive and innate talent that promises to be one of Jamaica’s finest, Denyque is determined to take her place in music history.
After winning several medals in Jamaica National Festival song competitions at 11 and 12 years of age, Denyque went on to be a straight “A” student when attending the prestigious Belair High School in Mandeville, Jamaica. After graduating with honors in 2008, financial restrictions kept her from accepting a scholarship to Berklee School of Music in Boston in the same year, but Denyque still couldn’t resist her calling to music and decided to keep following her passion.
Under the tutelage of Phillip “Juniour Arrows” Linton, Arrows management steered her to her first hit single “Can’t Breathe” in early 2009. She followed up with another hit single “Pieces”, produced by veteran producer Don Corleon, and then continued honing her skills with producers Neil “Cash Flow” Mitchell, Conroy Forte from Washroom Productions, and another industry veteran, producer Jeremy Harding, releasing her latest single , “Super Girl”.
After her stint with Arrows management had ended, Denyque’s efforts would not go unnoticed and one meeting with Jade Lee CEO of Jade Promotions sealed a new management deal in early 2010.
“An incredible vibe and great chemistry! I can safely say for the first time I feel completely secure as an individual and as an artiste”, Denyque admitted.
