Denny on Songwriting Part II

Who inspired you to become the musicians/writers that you now are?

When we were growing up there was always Irish music in the house like The Dubliners or the The Clancy Brothers my father’s choices along with some terrible country music sung by men from Mayo with American accents. My mother was more into 60s pop Herman's Hermits, The Beatles, The Troggs.

   The Clancy Brothers

So when I became old enough to decide for myself I headed into The Doors, Nirvana, Oasis territory, but the pop and folk seems to be lodged in there and it won’t go away. Luke Kelly is still the greatest singer I’ve ever heard.
