iTunes Review

Less than two minutes long and featuring six lines, "Let Go a Little" is key to understanding Denison Witmer. The Philadelphia-spawned singer/songwriter has been making records since the late '90s and has built a moderate audience to unravel his poetic vagueness. He's always preferred the dark, slow, acoustic side, where traveling is never light or easy. This high seriousness mixed with efforts at spontaneity makes for unpredictable results, and the songs either mean more or less than he thinks. "Take More Than You Need" nails the intimacy of the early-'70s singer/songwriters he's obvious committed to memory. "Right Behind You" is an intimate portrait worthy of an album titled after himself. And in the shuffling "Keep Moving Brother, Keep Moving Sister," he sings: "I consider my name/The one I'm given and the one I became/and the difference between hangs inside the stars, my love." It's a more promising outcome than "Made Out for This," where his question of purpose could bring about the wrong answer. 

Customer Reviews

A soul-moving album

You know those moments when you're walking down the street at night, or lying awake in the middle of the night, or perhaps, mowing the lawn and you find yourself thinking about your life? It's those moments when you're truly honest about your hopes and fears.

That's what Denison's new album is to me. It's like I'm joining him in those moments. I see in his songs my utter reliance on God, my love for my wife and how I never want to be without her. His lyrics resonate with me, and he delivers them so honestly with his music.

It's rare to hear lyrics, vocals, and music work synergistically to create something so much greater than either piece individually.

I love it, and you will too.

A haunting adventure

I love this album. I really like most of Denison's albums; however, this one has really pinpointed the type of sound that naturally guides my mind to listen to the lyrics. I cannot in good conscience come to the conclusion that any album is all that great if I cannot come away from a listening session and remember some of the words...this album is great.

I like the open spaciousness of the mix...makes me feel like I'm floating. :)

Minimalist perfection

Denison's etherial guitar, sweet voice and minimalist lyrics have created a perfect sound on this album. It's his best yet.

Biography

Born: Philadelphia, PA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Tagged by many music journalists as one of the most likely songwriters to fill the void left by Elliott Smith in the acoustic indie singer/songwriter movement, Denison Witmer catalogs the experiences of young adulthood in almost painfully honest detail. With a soft and sensitive voice that perfectly matches his laid-back 1970s California pop production and subtly expressive guitar work, he has gone from writing in his journal to becoming an intimate of like-minded artists like Damien Jurado and Pedro...
