Washington DC-based, soul/funk project, Summer Dennis & Rhymes recently released their dynamic and sultry album, Second Summer. The album premiered on The Hype Magazine November 8.
EARMILK says, “The funky record sees singer Dennis give thanks for the simplest things in life with a passionate vocal performance over a smooth groovy backdrop.” Blog Talk Radio praises Summer Dennis, saying, “Summer has a warm welcoming vocal style that celebrates her love of singing not just as an artist but as someone who truly loves the music.”
Having made appearances on media outlets like Great Day Washington, Celebmix, Soulbounce, and Blog Talk Radio, the funky duo’s sound has been compared to legendary soul great Parliament that can easily rival the test of time with the music of today.
Summer Dennis is a classically trained musician and vocalist with an extensive vocal range, extending from first soprano through alto. She created as a platform to bolster her lush and spirited musical creativity and high energy performance to inspire listeners throughout the nation. Recently transitioning from a full band to a duo, a powerful female lead, Summer Dennis co-writes with Bill Moore to compose music that displays power, independence but also femininity. Rhymes’ music and performances have cross-over audience appeal and combine elements of rock, R&B, latin, pop and reggae.
