Brett Dennen

A few years ago, Brett Dennen was a camp counselor who played guitar, wrote songs and performed fireside. With a self-made album, he began playing coffee shops along the West Coast and a devoted following formed.

A modest independent record deal led first to Dennen's 2006 break-through album, So Much More, then to the attention of music critics, programmers and established artists. Noting his success, Rolling Stone Magazine named Brett one of the “10 Artists To Watch in 2008.”

He’s toured with John Mayer, the John Butler Trio, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and Ben Folds, and has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. His third album, Hope for the Hopeless, made an impressive debut at #1 on the iTunes folk chart and #8 on its overall albums chart. Afro-Beat musician Femi Kuti appears on the album’s first single, “Make You Crazy”, and the single “Ain’t Gonna Lose You” was featured on Grey’s Anatomy.
