Denise La Grassa's talent for composing music and lyrics revealed itself early. "I was writing songs like mad at 5, maybe 6 years old,” recalled La Grassa. “Once I had a fistful ready to go, I would head out and knock on neighborhood doors and sing the songs right there on their doorstep! I was hoping they'd like the songs enough to buy them. I thought if I sold enough songs, I could buy birthday & Christmas presents for my family.” The door to door song-selling ended once Mom caught wind of the young entrepreneur’s exploits. “But I did get a few dollars in my pocket, and more importantly, I gained confidence at an early age as a songwriter, which propelled me to continue my songwriting into high school and college," said La Grassa.
