Dohnyale “Deni” Sharon Hines is an Australian R&B singer, and is the daughter of singer Marcia Hines.
Deni received her education in the entertainment industry sitting to the side of stage watching Marcia belt out a string of Top 10 singles in the heady days of the 1970’s music scene.
Hines is an ARIA Award-winning singer who has sold 1.3 million records worldwide. She has had top ten hits in Australia, UK, France and Japan (actually #1 in Japan) and collaborated with superstars The Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce Knowles and auteur Luc Beeson. For over two decades, the world has known the many moods of Deni Hines.
Growing up Hines began her career singing backup vocals for acts like Wa Wa Nee, Peter Blakely and Kylie Minogue.
She released her first single with the Australian band Rockmelons with the cover version of the Bill Withers 1971 hit “Ain’t No Sunshine”.
The song proved to be a success charting at number five on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart. With the success of the first single, the reggae-inspired “That Word (L.O.V.E.)” was the second song released by the collaboration and became another top five single, charting at number four in Australia. The third and final song Hines released with the band was the ballad “It’s Not Over”.
Not long after this, Hines spent time performing on-stage with a production of Jesus Christ Superstar prior to pursuing a solo career.
In 1992, Hines recorded “Not Enough Time” with INXS.
Hines was then signed to Mushroom Records and went on to release solo material with the top ten single “It’s Alright” and the top twenty album Imagination which clocked in over 2.5 million copies in sales worldwide.
Her album Water for Chocolate released in 2006 features the singles “Water for Chocolate”, “Son of a Preacher Man” and “5 Days of Rain”.
In 2007 Hines collaborated with trumpeter James Morrison on an album of Jazz standards, The Other Woman. Hines and Morrison performed an Australian National Theatre tour to near sell out audiences and received an ARIA nomination for “Best Jazz Album”. They also performed at marquee festivals such as Christchurch Jazz Festival and the Darling Harbour Jazz Festival.
Recently she has dedicated much of her time to charitable work teaming up with Christine Anu with performances for the Oasis Foundation’s charity single “Takin’ it to the Streets” (a cover of the Doobie Brothers’ song) and the associated tour along with Lifeline and is proud to be the ambassador for the humanitarian charity Oasis Africa Australia. In 2010 she visited the foundation’s village and school in Kibera, Kenya and while there she commenced recording a world music style album featuring some of the local musicians and the kids choir from the Oasis Africa School.
Deni Hines is without doubt considered one of Australia’s foremost entertainers. From hit singles and albums, to lead roles in musicals & television, Deni has grown up in front of audiences from an enthusiastic young performer to a mature, sophisticated all round entertainer.
