It isn't just writing the Theme song "Don't Bet The Farm" that Skip Denenberg remembers most about Farm Aid. Nor is it playing the song for over 5000 people with Willie Nelson and Family backing him up, nor is it being described by Willie as one of his favorite new songwriters, nor even sharing the stage with Neil Young, John Mellencamp, and Steve Earle. The most memorable moment came when the caterer approached him backstage to tell him how much Skip's songwriting had touched him, and he just had to come back and tell him so.
This is the magic of Skip and his music...honest powerful songs that brush against the elusive common nerve that every songwriter seeks to tap. Compared by some to Lyle Lovett, Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp, Skip's music has a distinct American feel that seems instantly familiar and comfortable.
As a Film and Television composer, Skip has scored programs and promos ranging from Sesame Street to Olympic Highlight reels, and has been nominated for 7 Mid-Atlantic Emmy awards in the last decade. He also enjoys the distiction of being recognized as the songwriter to the Philadelphia Phillies Major League Baseball team.
Praised by Peter Himmelman as "an organic songwriter of the finest caliber", and by music critic Chris Smith as "proof there is hope for the American song", Skip is earning a loyal following everywhere he fan at a time.
