Denison Witmer: Carry The Weight

The Militia Group [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Singer/songwriter Denison Witmer has slowly been building a fan base with each quality release in his catalog. Carry The Weight is Witmer's sixth album and it contains more top notch mid tempo numbers that let you just relax and focus on Witmer's pleasant vocals and lyrical story telling. Denison is still not a household name but has be compared to Nick Drake, Jackson Browne, and Elliott Smith so if that tells you something - you would be right because with the right break any one of these eleven songs could put him on your radio!

Key Track: "Life Before Aesthetics"

Band With Similar Fire: Sufjan Stevens
