Brett Dennen: Darlin' Do Not Fear
Brett Dennen: So Much More (Rhythmethod)

This great album came out so long ago that I had it at Elsewhere about a year back and then deleted it because I just assumed it was lost to all (except me) and I needed to free up some space.
Lord knows why it has now reappeared in a different cover and with "PRIORITY RELEASE!" emblazoned (three times) across the top of a promo flyer.
I guess -- because this new version comes with six extra tracks and a sticker which tells me his songs have appeared on Grey's Anatomy, Scrubs and House -- Dennen has at last been discovered outside Elsewhere circles.
Better late than never I suppose.
Briefly then, because I don't want to be seen repeating myself, Dennen is a sharp US singer-songwriter who has been picked up by Rolling Stone as one of the 10 artists to watch in 2008 (and I thought he was in 2007!) and has won rave reviews from mainstream US newspapers.
Since I wrote about him he has opened for Elvis Costello, Feist, John Mayer, Missy Higgins and many more. He's in the troubadour-folk tradition and has a voice which is immediately engaging and personal, and he writes about real stuff.
That's enough from me: here's Brett Dennen at Elsewhere. Again.
