Tony Denikos, (pronounced "Deny-kiss"), writes, records and performs some of the most refreshingly down-home Americana music in the Baltimore/Washington region. A native of Laurel, MD, he has been influenced by artists such as John Fogerty, Lowell George, John Prine, Graham Parker and Richard Thompson.
Tony has just completed his third recording Already Gone. A compilation of 11 distinctive tunes, these songs explore the entire spectrum of Americana music. This CD is full of cutting lyrical wit, breathtakingly personal storytelling and foot stomping backbeats. There are stories here that everyone can relate to about love, working class attitudes, hope, regret, forgotten patriots and unwitting heroes. Fans of roots guitar and fine musicianship will appreciate the world class cast of players, including: drummer Timm Beiry (Nils Lofgren, Danny Gatton); bassists Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakam) and Dave Jacques (John Prine, Emmylou Harris); keyboardist Phil Madeira (Emmylou Harris); and, guitarists Gantt Kushner and Warner E. Hodges (Jason and the Scorchers).
Today you can catch Tony performing his songs at venues throughout the Baltimore/Washington region with a band of incredible musicians presenting to the listening world a writing style uniquely his own. His songs will stay with you long after the lights fade to black.
