Philadelphia singer/songwriter Denison Witmer will be hitting the studio this spring to record a new album.
Witmer will be recording in Seattle, Wash., beginning at London Bridge Studios and ending at Studio Litho. Witmer’s friend and producer Blake Wescott will return, and frequent collaborators Rosie Thomas and James McAlister will be contributing as well.
Witmer’s last album, Are You A Dreamer?, was released in 2005, and the troubadour has been busy touring and producing since. He has shared the stage with Billy Bragg, Iron and Wine, Sufjan Stevens and Lovedrug. He and Stevens also co-produced Thomas’s 2006 EP These Friends of Mine.
Two years ago, Militia Group marked the 10-year anniversary of Witmer’s first album, Safe Away, by re-issuing it as a double disc special edition, complete with new artwork and a bonus EP. Witmer celebrated another significant milestone – his 30th birthday – by launching a charity websiteHappyBirthdayDenisonWitmer.com.
