"Afterglow" with Denia Ridley and the Marc Devine Trio


Released October 2014

Denia Ridley - vocals

Marc Devine - piano

Mike Porter - bass

Keith Balla - drums

Denia started her career singing in the late 80's with an original funk band in the very liberal and music-oriented town of Austin, Texas where she attended university. Since then she has toured and sung straight-ahead, blues and swing throughout Europe and America. 

In Europe and New York, Denia regularly performs with the pianist Marc Devine and his Trio, throughout many of the Jazz Festivals, including Nice and Madrid.  

Denia's beautiful voice is reminiscent of the great Nancy Wilson.  Her simple, swingin' style recalls Billie Holiday, one of her biggest influences.

Marc moved to NYC in January of 2009 after establishing himself on the forefront of the Jazz scene in Austin, TX.

In New York, Marc is making a name for himself as hard swinging pianist rooted in the traditions of bebop and swing and has already performed at many venues such as Small's Jazz Club, Cleopatra's Needle, and more both as a sideman and as a leader working with some of the best musicians in the city. Marc also has performed with Red Holloway, Sebastien Chaumont, Butch Miles, Clark Terry, Hide Tanaka, Fukushi Tainaka,  Benny Powell, and Art Johnson.
