“How refreshing and rare to come across an album of beautiful songs, Impeccably sung. Bravo!”
Don Black, Lyricist
“Love Is In The Room - I’m glad that I was”
Barry Cryer, Writer
“Some kinds of music are simply immune to changes of fashion or style. A singer - piano, bass, drums and eloquent songs. Simply timeless, in a jazz club or at the London Palladium. Go and see this. Love is in the room = Love of music.”
Bill Oddie, Writer
About Denis King
Denis’ career encompasses almost every aspect of show business from singing and performing to recording and composing.
His musical career began at the age of six as a banjolele-playing singer at childrens’ matinees. By the 1950s and early 60s he was a member of Britain’s first ever boy band The King Brothers, one of the most successful pop groups of that era and the youngest Variety act to play the London Palladium.
From pop-star to award-winning TV composer (including the Black Beauty theme and Lovejoy), to award-winning theatre composer (Privates On Parade) and songwriter, and collaborating along the way with such legends as Alan Ayckbourn, Sammy Cahn and Don Black, the artists with whom Denis has worked (and played) read like a who’s who of British and American stage and screen--Tony Bennett, Nina Simone, Peter Sellers, Howard Keel, Sophie Tucker, Lena Horne, Alma Cogan, Albert Finney, Dame Edna Everage, Maureen Lipman, Elaine Stritch, Dudley Moore, Bruce Forsyth, Ronnie Corbett, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and even Jimi Hendrix.
Collaboration with Sarah
