Modern Americana with deep roots; Tony’s music is witty, cutting, purposeful and reflective. His authentic voice will drive the stories straight to your heart.
“Tony Denikos’ songwriting is filled with emotion and romanticism, moving from social commentary to small portraits of American life…. A good example of modern Americana and songwriting of noble birth.”~ Fabio Cerbone, Italy.
“…like a sponge Tony absorbs all the (Americana) influences and then wrings out something entirely his own” ~ Benny Metten. Belgium.
Tony has been performing and recording his original brand of folk Americana since 1999. After years of playing pubs and bars in various configurations Tony decided it was time to record a collection of songs he’d written and released, his first CD, Naked & Smiling. The Washington Post reviewed it calling Tony a, “Tunesmith in the best sense of the word”. And recently, (2020) Tony released “Gravity Wins”- A stripped down, raw and romantic take on all things life. Tony collaborated with Scott and Jen Smith, Geoffrey Himes and David E. Moulton on three tunes and pens the rest of this collection of ten superbly produced and performed compositions.
