Smoke and Mirrors marks Dennen's fifth album. I was a fan ever since his breakthrough album in 2006 which includes the track Darlin 'do not Fear. His voice 'got' me on the spot. So unique. He started out as many singer songwriters do, playing the coffee shop scene. Now, ten years later, he's touring around the US.
I enjoyed listening to the new album. He pretty much stays true to his own style, with the exception of a couple of more 'poppy' tracks. His lyrics are simple yet original, like: "I feel higher than a frequent flyer" in the track Not too late. The tracks Only Want You and Don't Mess With Karma have more of a depth to them.
Wild Child is the first single, but not my favorite. I've opted for the inspirational, making of video clip. Great scenery if you like the outdoors. Also a plus.
