I met Deni Gauthier a few days back during a visit with fellow blogger Michael Krahn. Deni’s a funny and very personable guy who isn’t afraid to share a few embarrassing stories (I, however, will leave those for him to share sometime :)).
He’s also an extremely talented musician who has spent the last several years touring the world and has just released a new EP, Man About Town.
I’ve spent the last couple days listening to the record and I really enjoy it.
(This might come as a shock to some of my friends—I don’t listen to a lot of music these days.)
Deni’s new record is a really solid set of folk pop/rock songs. Thoughtful and unpretentious lyrics along with music that reminds me of some of the best elements of Derek Webb (particularly his Mockingbird record) and Wilco.
So, I’ve got a favor to ask you all. Give the video above a watch. If you like what you hear, share it with your friends on Facebook or Twitter. You can also buy Man About Town on Deni’s website or at iTunes and follow Deni on Facebook or Twitter.
I hope you like the record!
Who are you listening to that you’d recommend?
