Christopher Denny

Christopher Denny has been called a weirdo, a sweetheart, a mad man, and a musical genius. Denny's music draws heavily from both gospel and country influences, and his voice is enriched with the ghost of Roy Orbison. He's based in Little Rock, and is a recent signing to Partisan Records.

A few weeks ago Do512 hosted a recording session with Christopher Denny, who showed up with an all-star band that included Austin musicians Lauren Gurgiolo of Okkervil River, Danny Malone, Graham Wilkinson, and a drummer whose name escapes me. It was one hell of a night.
