Be the 'Painkiller' to Those Struggling With Depression By Purchasing The Debut Single By Dennie Hall FT. Camille Rae
A country boy raised in Grove City, Ohio Dennie Hall has always looked after his peers. Whether in church or at home Dennie spent much of his time singing as a child, often performing alongside his mother and sisters.
On June 30th Dennie released his debut single Painkiller pairing up with female artist Camille Rae. Co-written by Greg Barnhill, Stephen Pasch, and Kristian Bergsnes the song reflects a feeling of encouragement to those who struggle with substance abuse. With a deep tone and heartfelt message, Dennie was skeptical about the song choice at first but found that with time he fell in love with Painkiller’s relatability as well as its ability to be interpreted in many different ways.
“You have to push beyond the hard times to reach the better,” said Hall. “When I first heard this song I wasn't sold on recording it. I then thought about how this song could help one person or maybe more. I think lots of people will relate to this song because everyone has experienced happiness walk out of their life in some shape or form… love, a job opportunity, whatever have you… but abusing a substance won’t fix the situation.”
Wanting to raise awareness about depression and substance abuse Dennie returned to his local church declaring that for every download of Painkiller, 10% of the proceeds with be donated to Celebrate Recovery. Later this summer Dennie hopes to release the music video to showcase his interpretation of the song.
So don’t forget to purchase Painkiller available here to help raise awareness of those suffering with substance abuse, as your loved one could be the next victim of depression.

Courtney was singing by the time she was three months old and by age five was playing the piano and guitar. Continuing to follow her passion Courtney took up theatre and began to write poems which later became songs. Being six feet tall Courtney switched her focus to modeling, which taught her to be confident as well as disciplined. Though she enjoyed modeling, Courtney was drawn back to music doing what “set her soul on fire.”
Raised listening to Shania Twain, Courtney set out to inspire her listeners to feel empowered emphasizing to never letting anything stop you from following your dreams. Compelled by the freedom to belt out any message or story, Courtney was hooked to the country music genre and began fusing her soul background with instruments often used in country.
Meanwhile Lamont started his career in music as a producer. Having signed many artists himself, Lamont has learned how to feel the music and does so while playing the drums and bass.
Upon meeting the duo were quick to become friends and later fell in love.
