about

Perfect World is a compilation of Denis’ country music efforts. After moving to the States, Denis and his wife, Sharon, eventually found themselves situated on Florida’s East Coast, where country music abounds. Always in a band of some sort, Denis found himself steeping in the sounds of country as he played bass for a multitude of western groups, ultimately writing many originals of his own. Please enjoy these Southern creations from a Scottish mind.
