Dennis Eugene Eggers / Bio

Similar to other artists in attitude and aptitude only...I don't believe I sound like anyone else. Born January 15, 1948 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Raised as an airforce brat, the nomadic lifestyle stuck as an adult though my dad’s E. TN Smokey Mountain heritage and my mother’s South Western High Country roots continue to be the primary cultural influences of my life and music. The folk music of the Smokey Mountains combined with my love for traditional Southern Gospel and Delta Blues mixed with the high lonesome Cowboy ballads, Texas roadhouse blues and the influences of the San Francisco Psychedelic 60’s jam bands are evident in my music today. . My father’s passion for history and traditional music and my mother’s love of the visual arts and classical music, along with my parents combined interest in spiritual life influenced my own studies in those areas with their support and encouragement. My personal life experiences also led me into seeking deeper understanding of the concepts of freedom and responsibility. A Viet Nam war combat veteran, I joined the U.S.M.C. and volunteered for combat duty after graduating from Young High School in Knoxville, TN in 1966. The experiences as a young Marine serving in Viet Nam definately influence the darker elements of my lyrics. I have been playing and composing music, writing lyrics and ramblin’ around the country for a half century now and after many attempts at romantic relationships I’ve been fortunate and blessed to have the love and companionship of my best friend, biggest fan, manager and wife, Sandra Nordwall Eggers. We were married April 30, 2011 at Owen Bradley Park here on Music Row. Restless Roots Records, Americana Independent Music, just released my 6th cd "Waiting On the Thunder". We retired and left Nashville a little over a year ago...moved into a small cabin in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains in E. TN and enjoying life in the woods with our 2 dogs and a cat...
