Denison Witmer


Denison Witmer picked up the guitar at the age of 16 and drew the interest of the Innocence Mission's Don Peris. As Peris became Witmer's musical mentor, he would oversee and play guitar and keyboard on his apprentice's first recordings, 2000's River Bends EP and the much-heralded Safe Away (1998). His other recordings include the albums Philadelphia Songs (2002)Of Joy & Sorrow (2002), Recovered (2003), Are You a Dreamer? (2005), Carry the Weight (2008), The Ones Who Wait (2012), Denison Witmer (2013), and American Foursquare (2020), as well as many singles and EPs.
