With a worn but graceful voice, Christopher Denny sings as though he’s lived through more than the average 23 year old. The Little Rock, Ark. musician spent some time in Dallas and Chicago, playing sidewalks and bars, while writing powerful songs that recall traditional folk and Americana. But his distinctive and strong voice sets him apart from most singer songwriters.

Denny’s album, Age Old Hunger, is a refreshing take on Southern honky-tonk. While his songs express a rural setting, his voice and writing owe much to both Roy Orbison and Jeff Buckley. Denny’s band, the Old Soles, supports his vocals with crisp, full-on gospel instrumentation. On the opening bars to “Gypsy into a Carpenter” Denny lures listeners with an incredibly captivating voice, while Marcus Lowe and Chris Atwood soon follow with solid drums and a warm organ tones. “Time” presents a simple melody and sincere lyrics about learning and moving on.

Denny’s album, released on 00:02:59 Records, has caught the attention of a few major label executives. He recently met with Columbia Records executive Rick Rubin to talk about his music. But Denny is trying to stay grounded. He tells Little Rock magazine Localist, “You have to be a little skeptical with big labels now, because they’re a little desperate.” From NPR.STORY
