Like many of us, Brett Dennen has folk roots going back to summer camp. However, he managed to take the beloved campfire tradition and make a career out of writing, recording, and performing feel-good songs that are inspired by nature, love, heartbreak, and hope.

In this intimate performance recorded at The McKittrick Hotel, Dennen brought a band along to share a selection of songs from his brand new, sixth album, Por Favor, along with a few old favorites. He also told us about working on the album with Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb in Nashville and about his new side project: winemaking!
