Catch up with singer-songwriter and producer Denny White and listen to his latest single "Traces", out now.
What got you interested in music?
Denny White: I grew up surrounded by music, everyone in my family played an instrument or sang. Me and my siblings were always in lessons, and encouraged to to keep up with it, so that had a huge impact on me.
Do you remember the first song you wrote that you were happy with?
I can't remember the exact song, but I remember it being a Ben Folds-esque piano type vibe...
Which musicians have you been influenced by?
Some of my favorites are Radiohead, Amy Winehouse, John Legend & the Beach Boys..
Which words would you use to describe your sound?
A pop backbone, with an electric blue eyed soul undertone.
What were your inspirations behind your single "Traces”?
I was really inspired sonically first through trying to create a hybrid of organic instruments, mixed with more futurist textures & synth sounds.
Could you tell us more about your upcoming EP and whether that single is indicative of what we can expect to hear?
My next single is coming out late February, and it’s similar to “Traces” in it’s hybrid feel, but it’s a bit more of a ballad & piano driven. I can’t wait to share it.
What do you hope listeners are able to take away from your music?
I hope people connect with it enough to get them out to a show in the near future!
