Bio

Don't Tell Dena is an Oklahoma City based Psychedelic Indie Rock band started in 2015. Chris Krummrich and Sean Kanaly founded the band and later adding two fellow ACM@UCO students Campbell Young and Triston Lightner. We draw inspiration from Pink Floyd, Tame Impala and Walk The Moon. Our solid rhythm section, tight vocal harmonies and an energetic live show, help us put a new spin on old psychedelic.

As individuals, we like a wide array of different types of music.  We feel this gives us a lot of different sounds and textures to draw upon.  When we write songs, one of us comes up with a cool RIF or hook and we just jam to see what grows organically.  All our songs end up with a psychedelic or blues feel, it just happens that way.
