Music Production 101
Join us on Nov 29th from 6-9pm for a comprehensive production workshop facilitated by Denise De'ion. Women-identified musicians will have the opportunity to focus on learning beginner tools and techniques in music production including workflow, creating a song, and making it your own.
Denise De’ion is a Juno winning producer, singer and artist. She has been writing and singing from a young age, and strategically added music production to her already robust skillset in 2007. As a young, black, female artist, Denise felt she did not have as much exposure and accessibility to music studios and beats, so she took matters into her own hands.
Some of her most recent accomplishments include producing on Haviah Mighty’s Juno winning album Stock Exchange. In 2021, she was selected along with two other female producers for the Bacardi Music Liberates Music Campaign in partnership with Boi1da. Denise was granted the opportunity to work with and be mentored by the Grammy winning producer and release the NFT single Juice available on streaming platforms. She has also participated and won several beat battle competitions including winning Canadian Beatmakers League (now Global Beatmakers League) in 2020, the IStandard beat battle at the 2019 Ascap Music Expo in LA, and being in the top four, chosen out of thousands of entries, of the Remy Martin Producer challenge in New York.
Knowing that she is of a small handful of black women in the GTA that produce and create their own music has played a significant role in shaping Denise’s career to date. She firmly believes that the world needs to see more strong, empowered, female powerhouses in the music scene, and through what she is doing with her career, Denise hopes to inspire women around the globe to follow suit.
