About Rick Denzien

From the deep, cold & dark of Buffalo, NY comes an artist - Rick Denzien -
who is digging out - with songwriting that has ignited his new CD release,
RADIATE.

As if fate was like being stuck behind a snow plow on the Thruway in the middle of a raging blizzard on pack snow & black ice while driving 65 mph…never being able to see more than 15 to 25 feet ahead.”

“Some call it blind faith, stupid, an accident waiting to happen… but out in Western New York we call it winter driving.'

Driving blind can be greatest teacher because it takes us to the raw un-processed edges - like when blade of the steel plow sparks against the frozen road - that’s where we can find salvation - or crazed we smash into the ass end of a truck, driven by an over worked, underpaid NY-DOT worker."

Disappointments, bittersweet rewards, lost love & found dreams, released illusions; RADIATE broke through like a faint light traveling an infinite distance finally arriving along an empty and desolate road - a star on the horizon.

Rick Denzien has been collaborating with Michael G. Ronstadt for several years having co-produced his last 3 CD’s.

Michael, Linda's nephew, has a master in cello, is singer/songwriter, is an artist in his own right and side man cellist with many Philadelphia area artists like mutual friend Craig Bickhardt.[brother Pete Ronstadt & Rick mixed Craig’s “live at Sellersville Theater” CD] Rick took Michael on a leg of his tour through Western New York, playing the iconic Buffalo NY rock club Nietzsche’s. [Rick returns there this August to play Buffalo’s infamous “Infringement Festival”.] Many of the songs co-written by Rick & Michael show up on the “Foolish Fox” CD along with a cover of one of Rick’s songs from his “Heal the Land” CD – “All Over You”. If you listen to Rick’s Radiate & Green Sky CDs, you’ll hear Michael’s cello featured on several songs, and if you listen to Michaels CD’s you’ll hear backing vocals by Lyra Project – Rick’s musical entity with Debra Lee.

Rick & Michael recorded their projects at link powered exclusively by wind and rooftop solar. The studio is zero carbon and zero methane. Rick has been driving 100% electric and eating vegan since 2013 and is now considered a leader in the Zero Emission Musician movement. This past Earth Day he produced the 2nd annual link an original music and sustainability conference held in Ambler, PA with over 30 performing artists at select venues with an electric vehicles show.

Hey everyone,

Glad to be writing you, and hope that you are well in this pandemic time. Rolling around the country and singing in clubs, bars and festivals and facing the shared microphone. Man talk about a ball of germs. I have not used a shared mic in a club for decades, I purchased my own and it is always with me in my guitar case. The reason, germs on the microphone can make a singer very, very sick. So just before the pandemic hit the USA, I was singing at Dead Lightening in Harrisburg, PA and a fellow artist thought it was a great idea to have a personal microphone.

So I ware a mask too, it protects me and it protects people around me. Though it is not 100%, it does help a lot, which should be very obvious to everyone. Get your Zero Emission Musician Mask at this link:

Zero Emission Musician Rick Denzien takes to the stage with a mix of
sharp songs from the edges. Described as 'rock’n the extreme
folk', his song “Go Out and Play” is a rallying cry for over-worked
and lorded-over ordinary citizens, over-burdened by the daily worries
and stresses of early 21st-century life looming over a collective
survival. 'Zero Emission Musician' Rick Denzien’s zeal drives an
acoustic guitar and vocal style, like an early protest era anthem,
iconic for this moment in history. Rick Denzien was a CMJ charting
artist top 200 airplay, reaching the top 10 on some stations with the
Exit 21 CD.

His album “Radiate” followed years of studio productions, as recording,
mix engineer or producer, putting them before his own work. From Blood
Hound Gang "Use Your Fingers" to KGR Kool G Rap "Half a Klip" to Michael
G. Ronstadts "Bridging the Gap", "Foolish Fox" and "Game of Thrones" and
everything in between including the Lyra Project's "Goddess" album.

Hope you are well during this pandemic. We are doing well. Have been doing more online sets than ever before. You'll need to like Facebook to get the most up to date event info. New song out with vid: Death Looks on You....
link
Buy: link

"Death Looks on You" opens eerily with a lone trumpet playing the last note of taps…..
then, with a swoop of the bass [Chad Watson], breaks out instrumentally with an authentic antique kick drum and snare
from the 1920’s, [Lou DeLise] that are immediately joined by acoustic rhythm guitar [Rick Denzien]
and a quirkily captivating gypsy jazz era cello style line [Michael G. Ronstadt] together transporting listeners
to a dance hall band jam during the crash of 1929. The lyrics are frank, frightening, irreverent and dark, but
will make you smile if not outright laugh.
