This week's download comes from a very talented singer/songwriter by the name of Christopher Denny. Denny will release his album If The Roses Don't Kill Us on August 5 via Partisan Records (Field Report, Phox, Sylvan Esso).
Christopher Denny has a voice that will stop you in your tracks; a fervent Orbison meets Dylan tenor that fills his songs with a tremendous emotional pressure. It’s the voice of a Southern choirboy who attended the church of alcohol, drugs and self-destruction in a failed attempt to deal with his inner pain and conflicts. He has a gift for infusing simple words with raw sentiment and marrying them to haunting melodies that immediately capture your attention. “The album was inspired by my struggles,” Denny says. “The moments in my life that caused me the most hurt and brought me the most beauty. The songs deal with the self-loathing, fear and thoughts of inadequacy we all struggle with, something I call soft suicide.”
You have a week to download the song "Our Kind of Love" featuring Heartless Bastards' Erika Wennerstrom.
