Welcome to The Denise Gentilini Project

Denise is a four-time Heartland Regional Emmy®  Award winning composer/songwriter with 40 years of experience writing music for film and producing artists. Using her music for social justice, Denise focuses on writing songs with intention.

On August 4, 2021, Denise released the World Premiere Concept Recording of all the songs from I AM ALIVE - a new musical. You can listen to the songs at: www.IAmAliveTheMusical.com. Co-written with long-time collaborator Lisa Nemzo, this project is a stunning representation of a very important story. Please check it out. Available on all digital download sites as well as an actual CD! Here is the promotional video:


Denise's most current film project is the Cindy L. Abel film, Surviving the Silence, the untold story of two women in love who helped change military policy. Their previous collaboration, Breaking Through, shares the stories of self-doubt and triumph of openly LGBT elected officials. 

UPDATE: Surviving the Silence has announced a distribution agreement with Virgil FIlms and Entertainment - now available on Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Google Play and Vudu.

Next up - the release of a new music video featuring Lauren Shealy singing, The Little Things, written by Denise Gentilini & Lisa Nemzo.

Another UPDATE: The Little Things was just honored with another Heartland Regional Emmy®  Award for composition/arrangement!
