Boots Belts Irons
'This is Lynrd Skynrd revived. This is southern rock with a hint of indie, definitely a new age kind of music. Songs such as 'No News' and 'Feelin Good Blues' take us back to when cowpunks roamed the nation. For people who can't stand country but love classic rock, here's a happy medium.' (Review by Nicole Volpicelli of The Circle Magazine.) Dennis Feeney is a bassist, songwriter and singer who crafts rock, country and jazz. 'Boots Belts Irons' is Feeney's first album produced by Eric 'Roscoe' Ambel (of Steve Earle, and the Yayhoos).
