Will F. Denny

Will F. Denny (ca. 1860–1908) sang in vaudeville, beginning his career in Boston. He made his first recordings—cylinders—for the New England Phonograph Company in 1891. Denny specialized in comic songs and parodies. He recorded copiously for the Columbia, Edison, and Berliner record companies, and less so for Zonophone and Victor. He sang in a loud, full tenor with a slight trace of Irish brogue that slightly resembled George Walker of the team of Williams and Walker.
