As Promised: Denison Witmer

I promised a later post about Denison Witmer.

And so I deliver.

Denison Witmer is a Philadelphia based singer songwriter, although he doesn't fall under the typical male voice and guitar routine that seems so common. As much as I like John Mayer, I can only take so many copycats...Witmer has remained relatively unknown in many music circles, despite that he has been recording music for nearly a decade. The reason why is still a mystery to me.

Witmer perfectly blends his mostly acoustic sound with incredibly personal and poignant lyrics that often have the listener reflecting long after his songs are over. His songs have a unique sensitivity to them that is hard to place. Maybe it's in the tone of his voice, the pace of his songs or the softness of the guitar. Whatever it is, I like it.

Witmer's most recent album is titled Are You A Dreamer? and it is surely his best release to date. His sound really comes together on the album, and the listener can tell that Witmer is sincere with every note.

I mentioned yesterday about the charity "drive" of sorts that he's doing. Make sure you go to his website where he is giving away 33 free songs without any hitch. All he asks is for donations to two worthy causes.

I'm going to link to two or three that I think are some of his best:
Listen to "Are You a Dreamer?"
Listen to "Everything But Sleep"
Listen to "East from West"
