About Dennis DeYoung
A native of Chicago, Dennis' passion for music displayed
itself at the young age of 14 as he teamed up with local neighborhood kids to form his first band, a three piece alongside
Chuck and John Panozzo. Two members and a few years later, the band would rename itself three times in total - first as Tradewinds,
then TW4, before finally settling on the catchy and inauspicious Styx in 1970. Styx, one of the most influential progressive
rock bands of a generation, would be Dennis' brainchild and his first class ticket into mainstream success. A multi instrumentalist,
Dennis showed off his prowess on vocals, keyboards, and the accordion during his tenure at Styx, and soon became the creative
genius behind the band's ever evolving progressive rock sound. He would be the sole creator of some of the band's most memorable
hits, including "Come Sail Away" and "Lady".
By 1984 Styx had taken a temporary hiatus, leaving Dennis and other band
members to pursue their own musical paths. Dennis found immediate mainstream success in his solo ventures, releasing four
albums during the 80s that posted all over the Billboard charts and spent considerable time across multiple top ten lists.
Dennis would spend a short time with Styx band members in the early 90s, but once the band split his career would take a turn
as he tried his hand at acting. A fan of musicals, Dennis began acting in Jesus Christ Superstar, and wrote for multiple shows
including 10 on Broadway and an iteration of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
By the mid 90s, Styx reunited once again and
would tour throughout the 90s, until Dennis' departure at the end of the decade. He would immediately embark once again on
his solo career, experimenting with various genres and musical configurations, including a full orchestra. While still maintaining
a busy recording and touring schedule, Dennis once again moved into acting, appearing in several major films throughout the
2000s and making a guest appearance on Canadian Idol. With a constant stream of new material and full length solo albums,
Dennis is showing no signs of slowing down as he continues to lead the progressive rock movement both in North America and
around the world.
Dennis broke onto the solo music scene in a big way in 1984, when he released
his self titled album that immediately lit up the music world. The album received a coveted four stars from media critic Allmusic
and eventually climbed to the #24 spot on the Billboard 200. The album was certified gold in Canada, and featured the singles
"Desert Moon" and "Don't Wait for Heroes", with the former reaching the top ten on Billboard's singles chart.
later, One Hundred Years from Now would drop, a testament to Dennis' continued influence on the rock scene. The self produced
album again garnered four stars from Allmusic, and was carried by singles such as title track "One Hundred Years from Now",
"Rain", and "Forgiveness". The album has once again solidified Dennis' position as a scion of modern rock.
jokingly appearing in the film The Perfect Man as the vocalist of a Styx tribute band, Dennis would form a real tribute band
of sorts alongside August Zadra, Craig Carter, John Blasucci, Tom Sharpe, Jimmy Leahey, and Suzanne DeYoung. The band would
pull from all the best of the Styx discography and has become a Styx fan favorite.
