Emerging young pop artist who wrote his first song at age 10.
Born in the US, now based in London, 15-year-old Denis Coleman is rapidly becoming one of the most promising emerging pop artists on the UK scene. He began his musical career aged 5, when he first picked up a violin. Discovering a passion for music, he began studying at the Royal College of Music, where he also began composing music. At the age of 10, he wrote his first pop song.
Just a few years later, he won the nationwide song writing competition of Open Mic UK with his original song RADIO (written age 12), attracting attention from talent scouts and tv shows. Denis is now the brand ambassador for The Power of Muzik, a mental health and anti-bullying campaign founded by celebrity vocal coach CeCe Sammy. He has also been touring the UK, visiting schools and sharing his experience with music, as well as talking to students about how to overcome adversity today.
This year has seen Denis making hits in the studio writing tracks with top UK producers including Red Triangle (the Vamps, Ronan Keating, David Guetta, James Arthur), Joe Hartwell Jones (Usher, Adele, Ellie Goulding) and Raphaella (Rudimental, Gorgon City). He dropped his debut single ‘YOU’ in September 2018 and followed up with the highly anticipated ‘Soft Spot’ in March 2019. This summer will see him opening for The Vamps on their UK tour and performing on his own first headline tour.
