Modern Americana with deep roots; Tony Denikos’ music is witty, cutting, purposeful & reflective. His authentic voice will drive the stories straight to your heart. “Tony Denikos’ songwriting is filled with emotion & romanticism, moving from social commentary to small portraits of American life…. A good example of modern Americana & songwriting of noble birth.” ~ Fabio Cerbone, Italy. “…like a sponge Tony absorbs all the (Americana) influences & then wrings out something entirely his own” ~ Benny Metten, Belgium. The Washington Post calling Tony a, “Tunesmith in the best sense of the word”. www.tonydenikos.com
Following in the footsteps of Americana songwriters such as Joni Mitchell & James Taylor & Bonnie Raitt, Angie Miller mixes a smart pop style into modern folk rock tunes & introspective ballads that hook the listener into the stories being told. As Waazzup Magazine says, “Her music, which is both playful & thoughtful, mixes folk ballads & sultry standards & alternative acoustic pop.” “Angie Miller has the unique ability to combine a ballsy blues backbone with a sweet & sexual sensibility…” ~ Mark Bounds, Music Monthly. “There is something about Miller’s slightly husky voice that is inviting, even irresistible. She sings like a seasoned siren, stirring up a spicy gumbo of songs.” ~ Mathew Thomas Pugh, Bay Weekly. www.angiemiller.com
