Deuce Denninger – “In The Nights”


A bluesy, no-frills rock appeal lingers on “In The Nights,” a recent track from Perryville, Missouri-based artist Deuce Denninger. The track represents the first single from Deuce’s upcoming full-length album, Rock & Roll, Country Women, and Blues. Soulful backing vocals from Kara Smollen and Joyce Baker Statler add a reflective quality to the debonair lead. Lead guitarist Shannon Meyer, bassist Ken E Keller, keyboardist Tom Roed, and drummer Jimmy Brotherton also star on this rollicking rocker.

A free-flowing guitar suaveness traverses into the “rocksteady,” lyrical output, crafting a palpable momentum in its sporadic pace. “Do it right, do it in the night,” they let out as organs enter the fold. The backing vocals inject a soulful charisma, particularly during the title-touting refrain. A bass-fronted sequence at the three-minute turn escalates into another feverish series of vocals, driving into a finale with amply satiating qualities as they converge with bluesy guitars and shining organs. “In The Nights” is a winner from Deuce Denninger.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
