Bio of Dennis Genovese
He began singing in the Amato Opera, N.Y.C. under the supervision of Tony Amato when he was 10 years of age. Dennis made his first recording at age 13, signed his first record contract at age 16 with Artie Ripp, who produced Billy Joel, Sly & the Family Stone, the Shangri-Las and other recording artists. When he turned 17, he was signed by Clive Davis to Columbia Records in a group known as the "Roman Numerals". They performed at Carnegie Hall in 1968 before signing with Jeff Katz and Jerry Kassenex of Buddha Records.
In those formative years Dennis recorded in some of the now legendary studios such as A & R, Columbia, and Bell Sound. Around 1973 he began recording himself and a singer named Karen Mantero, whom he was developing, with a 4 track Tascam reel to reel tape recorder. Being an arranger, songwriter and musician he consequently began producing artists of varying styles as well as independent productions of his own and Karen's, his lifetime songwriting partner. Karen and Dennis opened their first commercial recording studio in 1980 in Hicksville Long Is. N. Y.
Dennis later re-located the studio called "Fallen Angel" to Northport Fl in 1989. In 1995 it was upgraded to a 24 track digital ADAT facility and again in 1999 it became completely non-linear and was renamed "Get Free Productions".
Between 1980 and 2010 Dennis had produced, arranged and engineered over 130 recordings with artists of diversified styles. He produced and edited over a dozen analog music videos in the mid-eighties and two non-linear video documentaries in 2008 and 2010. "Ziggy on the Run", the story of his musical mentor who lived in the Greenwich Village streets for 33 years, premiered on Nov. 12, 2008 at the "New Film Makers" film festival in NYC.
"Hard Love: CFAR's Journey", the story behind the Central Florida Animal Reserve's foreboding euthanasia of 51 big cats in Sharpes Fl, premiered in Sarasota Fl. April, 2010.
At Manatee Community College in 1995, Dennis Genovese began his teaching career. Between Jan. 2005 and Sept. 2010 he taught Audio Production at Seminole State College while giving local seminars and tutoring privately.Follow @Tazmolottie
