I have a wide variety of covers and originals and use a live looper to create multiple layers of music, from high energy beatbox jams to chill acoustic dittys.

Dennis Malley is a Cranberry Township solo musician who writes original songs that are richly textured with instrumental harmonies brought to life using a live looping "electrified acoustic" guitar rig.
His instrumental talents are complimented by a seasoned ability to bring songs to life with singing that is heart-felt and uniquely composed. He is the definition of a musician who has committed decades honing his live act using improvisational jamming as a cornerstone of his style. It is an amazing performance to witness as he brings the fullness of music of an entire band to a solo act.
His craft of layering multiple lead lines, within a beautifully layered chorus, yields a highly original style that brings emotion and presence to his solo performances.
He started out on guitar at 13 and has committed much of his teenage and adult years to learning live performance art. He's been in area bands throughout the years, eventually learning singing and songwriting as he grew into an emerging solo talent. After much work and commitment to this style, Dennis is comfortable and can easily find a groove that “takes him somewhere else” during solo shows.
More recently he's been collaborating with other musicians, continuing the live performance journey, most notably with the jam band, Brother From Another Mother.
His “reason for being” is moments on stage where an improvised jam goes to another level. Music to Dennis is as much felt in the moment as it is practiced to be perfect technically. Collaboration with other like-minded musicians brings inspiration to the improvisational mix.
Dennis’ looping approach to musicianship demands a complete knowledge about advanced gear and sound. Achieving unique voicing, via gear partnered with tech, takes acoustic performances beyond the basic sound and into some "spacey" territory. He considers the written song to be the launch pad into whatever happens in the moment.
