Dennis Wanebo is from Boulder, Colorado. His music arcs across blues, rock, pop and gospel. Regardless of the musical template, however, Dennis’ lyrics betray the heart of an Irish storyteller, and the eyes of a city-desk reporter.
As songwriter with Bob Story for the Martian Acres Band, Dennis won three John Lennon International Songwriting awards, and a nationwide OurStage Songwriting Competition. The pair’s music enjoyed occasional bursts of international popularity, as well as a coterie of devoted fans in their own Colorado backyard.
Dennis has now turned his storyteller’s heart inward to themes of love and regret, and his reporter’s eye outward toward the gathering storm in the American dream.
The resulting, unabashedly melodic, collection of songs gathered in Running on Gravity is uniquely Dennis Wanebo . . . but the feel of this music may well put you in mind of singer-songwriters like John Sebastian, Jesse Colin Young, and James Taylor.
