Esmée Denters was born on the 28th of September 1988 in Westervoort, The Netherlands and is a Dutch singer. She was a regular cover-artist on video-sharing website YouTube where she covered songs from Brandy, Mariah Carey, OneRepublic, Natasha Bedingfield, Beyoncé Knowles, SWV and Justin Timberlake, amongst others. In 2008, Timberlake himself discovered her talent and Denters signed on as the first artist under Timberlake's label Tennman Records, an imprint of Interscope Records. Esmée added the official music video to the debut single "Outta Here" from her debut album of the same name, to her official YouTube page on 22 May 2009, and her second single "Admit It" on 3 September 2009. In autumn 2009 she was on tour with Honor Society. Now she is on tour with N-Dubz as their opening act.

Esmée Denters is undoubtedly on her way to musical stardom, with her debut album filled with songs she co-wrote with a host of top-notch hit-making producers. Esmée is one of the first artists signed to Justin Timberlake’s Interscope imprint Tennman Records, but a mere two years ago, this Dutch 20-year-old was just a pancake house waitress with a webcam and a dream.

An aspiring singer who fell in love with her father’s Stevie Wonder albums as a child, Esmée was 17 when she began posting videos of herself on YouTube singing her favorite hits by Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Pink, and Natasha Bedingfield, which she recorded in the bedroom of her suburban home of Oosterbeek in the Netherlands.

“I had seen all these videos of amateur singers, which gave me the idea,” she says. “I was just interested in what other people thought of my voice,” she says. “My friends had told me they liked my singing, but I was curious to get strangers’ opinions because music was what I really wanted to do.”

When the videos were a hit and viewers started to make requests, Esmée was encouraged and began posting several clips a week, including songs she’d written herself. Within nine months, Esmée’s videos had racked up 21 million views and the teenager became the No. 1 Most-Subscribed to Musician in the history of the popular video-sharing website.

It may have been her YouTube popularity that led Timberlake to seek out Esmée six months after her videos began to appear online, but it was her silky, soulful voice, natural charisma, and songwriting talent that sold him on signing her to his label, executive producing and co-producing the majority of her debut album. Timberlake, Chairman/CEO of Tennman Records says:

"One of the reasons I started my label was to be able to discover and mentor new talent, and it's been a great experience guiding Esmée's development. I've been producing her in the studio and working with some other great collaborators on her album, and I've seen her writing go to another level. Some people have it and some people don't - but this girl's the real deal!"
