SJ Denny is a self-made and independent singer-songwriter and artist based in the United Kingdom. The artist blends modern classical instrumentation with alt-pop and slight folk sensibilities to create his signature hearty brand of music. Denny also has a penchant for theatrics which he realizes through grand orchestration of melodies. In his new single, High Flying Birds, SJ Denny explores the soothing expanses of nostalgic blues. His sound and style is anchored by many influences like Neil Young, Elton John, The Beatles, and others.
The artist evokes a double nostalgia with both his poetic lyricism and sound pallets. He uses a range of instrumentation from acoustic piano, soaring violins, and lilting pan-pipe melodies. They make for a lush landscape for his melancholic vocals. Their cinematic flourish flow like the rolling hills, reminding us of all things past and gone. And the choral harmonies give us a smooth levity and freedom.
The artist writes, performs, and produces all his music. He debuted in 2015 with his four-track EP, Night & Day and has since released six EPs, one album, and eight singles! Denny relentlessly pursues his sound, fleshing out his style as he goes. He has several exciting releases lined up for this year. So make sure to look out for them!
Available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
