POP: Folky Pop, ROCK: Acoustic
Dennis' route to creating original music began at an open stage in Peoria, IL in 1993. He had always listened to a wide variety of music and had taken a few guitar lessons, but had never really considered singing in front of people. Emboldened by a few adult beverages, Dennis took the stage and played the only two songs he knew at the time, Walking in Memphis by Mark Cohn and Soul Asylum's Runaway Train. After a good audience response, Dennis quickly took to learning a vast array of cover songs and attended the open stage weekly, eventually working into hosting the open stage and playing solo gigs. He also hooked up with other open stagers to form various cover bands that played throughout Central Illinois and opened shows for big name acts such as Head East, The Marshall Tucker Band, and in August of 2002, Kansas.
Recording original material came to pass in the summer of 2000. Dennis had been slowly penning tunes while pursuing a degree in special education (specializing in visual disabilities) at Illinois State University, but didn't really have the resources to record them. A fellow bandmate had a decent home studio in his garage and offered to work on recording the songs.
The songs You Don't Want It, This Island Earth, Resonance, and Beautiful Day resulted from these sessions. Dennis had five more songs for the CD, but a lack of time for both parties and Dennis' move to Champaign/Urbana for gainful employment stalled things for a bit. The move did prove to be beneficial, because C-U has some fabulous media outlets such as 90.1FM WEFT, 107.1FM The Planet, and CU Cityview that support local original music. Dennis was able to play on WEFT Sessions, a Monday night public radio program that showcases local artists, and through WEFT Sessions found out about Pogo Studios in Champaign. Under the expert guidance of Mark Rubel at Pogo and with the musical assistance of other locals Ian Shepherd, Matt Stewart, Roger Prillaman, and Travis Smith, Dennis was able to complete his self-funded debut release in June of 2002. The tracks Your Love, Mystery Girl, The Girl You Want, This Could Be You, and Here (Coming Home) completed the CD which came to be titled This Could Be You.
