'...A sneak preview of his debut album 'Nature Of Life' suggests he could be about to garner the wider attention he deserves.' Jackie Hayden, 'Hot Press'
The new album by Dennis McCalmont was also reviewed by Danny McElhinney in the 'Irish Mail On Sunday'
'...Dennis McCalmont knows how to deliver a heart-felt song without any histrionics...'One Day In Spring' and 'The Circle Never Ends' would remind one of Crowded House's Neil Finn, while there is a nice Bono-esque falsetto on 'Carousel'...Any Music Publisher worth his salt should be seeking the man out.'
The NEW Album 'NATURE OF LIFE' is now available to DOWNLOAD at www.reverbnation.com/dennismccalmont and includes a Bonus Track 'Silent Friend'
