Welcome to My World, the memoirs of Cleveland musician Denny Carleton is a wonderful and inspiring read! Journeying from the 1960’s to present day, this book takes a nostalgic look at Cleveland music as seen through the eyes of an accomplished musician/composer and teacher.

Drew Losch-Videographer Cleveland Music Historian

I recently captured an on camera interview with Denny Carleton for a mini-documentary series I am producing of Cleveland's most dedicated and durable Rock and Roll musicians that have roots dating back to the early to mid 60's who have been, and still are performing in Cleveland's current music scene.
And here he is with a wonderful book. From childhood, to the 60's with The Lost Souls AND The Choir, to Moses, the 70's, 80's, to now. Denny is one of those SPECIAL guys that has been there on the Cleveland music scene since the early 60's and has networked with the BEST of Cleveland's own. He's a warm ,intelligent and very special guy. Please have a look at this.
