Introducing the 2023 Groundwater KIX-Start Winner!

4 October 2023

Join us in congratulating our 2023 Groundwater KIX-Start Winner – Denvah! 

Rising Rockhampton singer-songwriter Denvah will be joining our massive lineup to help us celebrate 10 years of country music on the Gold Coast. 

With a background in dance and musical theatre from the age of four, Denvah has always been drawn to the stage.

In 2019, she recorded her self-penned debut EP ‘Just the Beginning’ with the help of Nathan Davis, Ian Moss and multi-award-winning producer Matt Fell. Denvah then burst out onto the Australian country music scene in 2020 with this much anticipated debut, which kicked off with a bang to a sold-out launch concert. 

Following the success of her debut, her first two singles, ‘My Favourite’ and ‘Do It Again’, reached number six and seven respectively on the Australian Country Hottest 50 Chart, remaining within the top ten for multiple weeks.

From being awarded the Young Citizen of the Year Award at the Rockhampton Australia Day Awards to working with and supporting many country favourites like Troy Cassar-Daley, Caitlyn Shadbolt, Fanny Lumsden and more, this really is just the beginning for Denvah! 

“I’m so grateful and excited to have been chosen as the winner for Groundwater’s KIX-Start 2023 competition! The support from this competition is amazing and truly a blessing. The talent in the top 10 was absolutely incredible, so I’m extremely honoured to have been selected.”

Denvah will be kicking off the Surf Parade Stage at 3.30PM on Friday 20 October. Make sure to add her performance to your must-see list on the festival app, and give her a listen on Spotify now to fall in love with her soulful tunes.
