Haldern Pop Festival 2009

Denison Witmer is an indie singer-songwriter from Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

His first release, in 1995, was a cassette titled My Luck, My Love. He has since released five LPs; a cover album (Recovered); two EPs; and an LP with The River Bends—a side project consisting of members of the Philadelphia-based alt-country band One Star Hotel. Witmer's most recent album, Are You A Dreamer?, produced by Don Peris of The Innocence Mission and featuring Sufjan Stevens, received acclaim, including good reviews from Pitchfork Media and Entertainment Weekly. Witmer and Stevens appeared on Rosie Thomas's 2007 album These Friends of Mine. Witmer toured with Rosie Thomas in support of that album, in venues everywhere from Germany to southern California.

Witmer's style has been described as "neo-folk." He has also been compared to 1970s-era singer-songerwriters, including Cat Stevens and Nick Drake. Witmer's lyrics are poetic and thoughtful; his guitar work, while simple-sounding, relies on complex fingerpicking.
