Stout, (Denise Renee) an artist born and raised in New
Haven , CT – began her musical endeavor at the age of 3, in her great grandmother’s basement church. She began playing the drums for church service, and later, began singing in
the children’s choir. Her passion for performing became a constant motivating force.
She went from performing at local church concerts,
musicals, and services, to touring the world as a supporting vocalist for Alicia Keys. This experience allowed her to perform with greats like Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Missy
Elliott and so many more. The tour led them on a worldwide adventure across the GLOBE.
They hopped around the world, performing in the most
prestigious venues to legendary shows like OPRAH, The Grammy Awards, The MTV Video Music Awards, The Billboard Music Awards, Dave Letterman Show, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon, Ellen,
Good Morning America and the list keeps going. Her journey as a supporting vocalist continued with Electrifying Artists such as Childish Gambino and Cory Henry which fueled her
solo career even more.
In 2018 she launched her solo career under the Alias
“Stout”, which speaks to her stage presence–powerful, determined and solid! Since 2018, Stout released several singles and an EP which is steadily electrifying stages across the
world, while transforming her listeners.
