Deni Smith

Sun-soaked pop with a hint of guitar twang, a dash of two-step and oozing personality, Deni Smith is taking the Fife singer-songwriter scene by storm. ​ After a smashing festival debut at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in August 2016, Deni released her debut single "Bring Back the Sun", championing a sold out Single Launch Party in her hometown of Dunfermline. The single received many rave reviews and national radio airtime from the likes of Castle FM, North Highland Radio, Amazing Radio and Vinyl Noise ( ​ Following her move to Glasgow, Deni toured with Hit the Road, headlining PJ Molloys, Dunfermline and also visiting the Stove, Dumfries and Oran Mor, Glasgow. She also spent time songwriting alongside Ross Leighton (Fatherson). Deni ended 2016 with a hot feature in The Scotsman's Artist of the Week column. ​ 2017 started with a bang for Deni as she played the legendary Celtic Connections Festival to an audience at full capacity. Later in the year, Deni walked away from the Dunfermline Press Community Champion Awards as the winner of the Live Music Award. Deni plans to return to the studio to prepare for her next release after a busy festival period. Chris Foote
