The definition of a party band, Fusion is a blend of groove/rock/dance/funk music that always gets the party started!
VOCALS: Denise Levasseur
Denise Levasseur, lead singer and front person for Fusion is originally from Tiverton, RI. Denise studied voice in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York City. She toured the US and Europe covering an array of styles. Jazz, rock, and a variety of ethnic-tinged music all became her own, but her abiding first love remained Pop. One key to Denise's success is the mentoring of former CBS Records platinum award winning producer, Paul Leak. His informal lessons in songwriting, interpretation, performing, and the realities of the music biz have obviously left their mark. Denise won “song of the year” on MP3.com with her original hit single titled “Losing My Control” off her debut CD and at one point was averaging 15,000 downloads a day.
