Dianca Denay releases new LP album 'Halo The Painkiller, No. 2'

The Euro-Canadian singer and songwriter known as Dianca Denay has released her new LP record, “Halo the Painkiller, No. 2.” The album contains 14 original Dianca Denay tracks for an approximate total listening time of one hour. The LP has been proudly published on the Panther Records independent music label outside the influence of the corporate music industry. Colorfully creative, full of bass-driven back beats and characterized by an overarching feminine mystique, “Halo the Painkiller, No. 2” is a clear sign that Dianca Denay has arrived.

Dianca Denay cites as main artistic influences a surprising array of various sounds, including music by Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Madonna, Lil' Kim, Tupac Shakur, Jay-Z, Abba, Liona Boyd and others. Her “Halo the Painkiller, No. 2” record is the followup to her debut EP album, “Halo the Painkiller,” which appeared in 2010. “Halo the Painkiller, No. 2” is therefore her debut full-length release and the most significant musical milestone of Denay's repertoire to date.

Dianca Denay's LP is best described as electronica or euro-house music, but its main feature is the singing of Denay, herself. Each of the record's songs sports plenty of vocals with the exception of its closing instrumental. These are wrapped around carefully constructed lyrics concerning a broad variety of topics. Some songs are socially conscientious, others more intimate, while still others seem deeply personal in nature.

Asked to comment on the themes of her new LP, Denay writes, “Some of my songs such as 'Painkiller,' 'Pulse' and 'Addictions' provide a metaphor of surviving against all odds and overcoming adversity. I would like to help raise understanding and awareness around life challenges that are so prevalent such as bullying, addictions and other types of struggles. I want to help show how people can get the supports they need to cope and to spread the message that there is hope.”

Denay's current official bio describes her music as weaving“elements of inspiration, tragedy, pain and perseverance into original songs with sounds of pop, hip hop, dance and European world flavours.”

A second full-length Dianca Denay album is already in the works under the title, “Uno.” Her online fan base is burgeoning with over 75K followers as of today, her album having only just been released. She has a cluster of official music videos on her YouTube channel, also, each of which has been played thousands of times.

She is often quoted as saying, “All it takes is just one person to believe in you even if that one person is yourself.”

“Halo the Painkiller, No. 2” by Dianca Denay is available online worldwide.
