More on Brett Dennen

I blogged recently about Brett Dennen, but Im just gonna labour the point for a minuite, IM listening to 2 minuite excerpts of his album on cd baby check it here, he's writing some really great simple songs which sound great and the play count of Desert Sunrise I got from iTunes has kept nice and high. The album sounds great so far so I woudl definatly check it out if you can, Im off to Ohio in a day or two from the UK and so im gonne look around for his CD a bit and invest! I reckon this will be a name to look out for in the alt. circles. Heres his home website as well if you wanna check it out. Heres some info on him and his new album "Brett Dennen's debut is easily one of the best releases of 2004. Rarely does music come along so unadorned, so pure in spirit, and so eloquently written." Chris Douridas, Host of "New Ground", KCRW Radio, Santa Monica CA Born in the small, gold rush town of Oakdale CA & home schooled into his teens, left Brett Dennen room to explore a wealth of artistic tendencies. Free of comparisons to peers or lesson plans designed for overflowing classrooms, he developed a compelling natural voice and an instinctive dexterity on multiple instruments. Fast becoming known for intricately groovin' guitar playing, a soul-stirring voice and a lyrical beauty rare in a young writer, this charming, unpretentious red-head, with an easy wit, enchants and captivates listeners whenever he performs. I also randomly got an email from Brett Dennens manager after finding the last post by searching on google, who says that there organising a UK tour in 2005 so how bout that for an exclusive... Also salute to you Leslie (Bretts manager) for a great quote as your signature on you email, I love it "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.-
