Carl Dennis has penned some great lyrics to various musical genres... Country Western, R&B, and now Gospel. The truest gift of his writing is his ability to capture and relate a heartfelt story through his passionate and descriptive lyrics. Carl developed a talent for writing and performing songs specifically tailored for individual artists and special occasions.
Raised in the lower 9th ward of New Orleans, in a home that his Mother always filled with the word of God and music that covered the spectrum of styles and artists…Such as Brook Benton, Dinah Washington, Mahalia Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Nat "King" Cole, James Cleveland, Ella Fitzgerald, Lawrence Welk, Count Basie, Nelson Riddle, Smokey and The Miracles and The Temptations as well as the symphony music played on the soundtracks of Warner Bros cartoons… These artists and this music shaped Carl sense of musical composition, and his overall appreciation for these beautiful and interesting sounds.
Now coming full circle, he knows that it has been the hand of God that his guided his career thus far, and is now leading him fully into the realm of Gospel music. Carl says that God has always been at the center of his life, so it is his absolute joy to be able to write and sing about His goodness. "To you through me from God” This is the heart of his message an he prays that you WILL be blessed by it ~
