In many ways, Dennis Graham was born into music: his brother, Larry Graham, is a legendary funk bassist, his uncle Willie Mitchell is a renowned Memphis music producer and cousin Teenie Hodges was a guitarist and songwriter for Al Green.
As a child growing up amidst the funk, rock, soul and county of his hometown of Memphis, TN, young Dennis taught himself to play piano, guitar and drums, and joined the first of many bands, spending his nights and weekends gigging. A chance encounter at age 18 lead to a stint drumming with Jerry Lee Lewis. Throughout all of the ups and downs of life, Dennis’ passion for music has been consistent.
In recent years, Dennis has become known through his iconic appearances in his son Drake’s music videos, as well as the Canadian band “The Arkells” song “Drake’s Dad.”
In 2017, Dennis released his long-awaited debut R&B single and music video “Kinda Crazy” to rave reviews. Additional singles are scheduled to be released soon!
