Spanish For Hitchhiking + Winterpills

Dennis Crommett is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Western Massachusetts USA. In addition to recording and performing as a solo artist, Crommett fronts the indie rock band Spanish For Hitchhiking, plays guitar and lap steel in the chamber pop outfit Winterpills, backs up other artists such as Mark Mulcahy, and makes ambient instrumental music. His first solo record The Evening Sorrow (2006) was released independently in the U.S. and by Rounder Europe; in their review, American Songwriter noted that Dennis is “undoubtedly a gifted songwriter.” In 2011, Signature Sounds Recordings released In the Buffalo Surround; Crommett has since released two albums of songs independently: 2014’s bedroomy The Coast Road, and the 2020 EP Straighten Up, where fuzz-saturated electric guitars replace Crommett’s usual spacious acoustics. In addition to those records, Dennis has released two collections of instrumental music: Patterns in a Familiar Room (2017) and I Am Not Done With My Changes (2020). He’s currently working on both songs and instrumentals, and preparing to release Wild Love, the new album with his band Spanish For Hitchhiking, in July 2021.
