Alice's Loft is the creation and creative headquraters of musician, producer and engineer Denise Mangiardi.
Denise graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in piano and composition and has also received a masters and post graduate in composition from Trinity Laban in London. She has received numerous commissions for her work including "Songs of the Rainforest"; a full scale orchestral piece for the Orchestra Toronto. Denise created Alice’s Loft in 2011 in order to create a welcome environment for artists and creators to imagine their musical dreams. The uniqueness of Alice’s Loft is that it is run under a producer's direction. Alice's loft is unique in its direction : we take the role of the producer to promote self-awareness, confidence and inspiration - thus allowing us to delve deeper into the artist's vision than your every-day recording studio.
Denise has been playing and singing since a very young age and began singing and performing jazz while at Berklee. Her wealth of experience as a performer has given her that special gift of encouragement coupled with critical feedback in order to help artists bring their projects to fruition. She has self-produced 6 CDs and is there to give an extra ear to your recording.
Whether it is a vocal or instrumental performance, Denise is there to help bring your recording to its fullest. We are happy to assist with, provide feedback on or in-house create a string, harp, guitar or piano part for your envisioned project. If you need scores, parts, string arrangements, brass arrangements, transcriptions and/or orchestral arrangements, please contact Denise.
