Brett Dennen - FUV Live - 2013

by Carmel Holt

For Brett Dennen’s fifth full-length release, Smoke and Mirrors, he decided to remove himself from his busy lifestyle and spend some time on his own. He retreated to a house in the mountains of Northern California where he “found inspiration in his surroundings and the simplicity of nature.”

The new album (which is scheduled for release on October 22nd) is a bit of a return to form for Dennen, who started out with a very humble coffee shop folk-singer style and then progressed to a more full and rocking style on his last album, Loverboy. Brett recently stopped by to play us some of the new songs in Studio A, and on November 2nd he'll be performing them as part of our WFUV Live at Zankel Hall series.
