Don't Tell Dena

Don’t Tell Dena started as a collaboration between lead vocalist Chris Krummrich and drummer Sean Kanaly in 2015.  In 2017 they added lead guitar/vocalist Campbell Young and bassist/vocalist Triston Lightner.  Don’t Tell Dena uses elements from genres such as Alternative rock, Psychedelic rock, blues and pop. Don’t Tell Dena’s music uses creative bass lines, tantalizing guitar effects and vocal harmonies to create their unmistakable sound. Influences include Pink Floyd, Tame Impala, The Strokes, Yes, Arctic Monkeys and The Flaming Lips.
