Listen Up! - Denyse Tontz
Born in San Diego and now based in LA, 19-year-old Denyse Tontz has been writing songs and modeling professionally since she was a child. She is also an actress, with recurring roles on Disney’s “Dog With A Blog” and Nickelodeon’s “Big Time Rush” (I didn’t know you were allowed to be on both networks), and she did some soap operas as well.
I caught on to Denyse with her single “Use It”, which follows a long line of anthems telling the listener to be themselves. In her version, Denyse wants us to take all the bad things people have said and “Use It” as motivation to succeed. I can definitely agree with her on that point. Fuck other people, do you boo!
It looks like Denyse is just getting started in the pop world, as she only has a handful of songs. No matter, they’re light and fun enough. I won’t say anything like “She’s the next big pop star!”, but I will say maybe your 12 year old niece will like her.
