For the past ten years, Brett Dennen—with his poet’s perspective, off-kilter vocals, insane sense of humor, and limitless musical freedom—has turned dancing like no one’s watching into a lifestyle. As a songwriter, performer, watercolor artist, and environmental conservationist and outdoorsman, the shows he performs and the events he hosts generate more than good vibes. His impact has been to gather like-minded music fans to consistently try to make the world a better place.
When Brett began to pursue recording and touring professionally, neither his voice nor his intentions changed. His debut album in 2007 kickstarted a career that uses every color of the musical palate. So much so, that with each song, the “musical math” to summarize his sound shifts. From Paul-Simon-meets-Bob-Marley to Violent-Femmes-meets-Buddy-Holly— it’s all there over an absolutely iridescent catalog.
Here’s Looking At You Kid was released in August 2018 as the second half of a two-part EP collaboration with Dan Wilson (Semisonic, Adele, Dixie Chicks) on Downtown Records. The first EP, entitled Let’s… was released Feb. 2018 and included “Already Gone,” which rose to #3 on BDS AAA and #4 on MB AAA.
Dennen recently wrapped up a summer tour with Jason Mraz followed by a fall headlining tour. Previously tours include John Mayer, Dave Mathews Band, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Pete Murray, Michael Franti, and others.
