Every now and then you find one of those artists who has a smooth, distinct voice that flows with their talent for creating amazing lyricsyou can feel the passion spill from their music. Folky, soulful, witty and insightful, Brett Dennen been compared to the likes of Paul Simon, Tom Petty, Tracy Chapman, Jack Johnson, James Taylor and Jason Mraz.

It was time to get back to basics, Dennen says of his fifth record,Smoke & Mirrors.I wanted to return to the folk and acoustic music I loved when I began writing. I decided to tap into my memories and explore new emotional territory as honestly as I could.

Bretts 2006 release, So Much More, officially launched him as a discovery artist and drew frequent comparisons to troubadours like Paul Simon and Tom Petty. In 2008 his Hope for the Hopeless didn’t stray too far from the songwriter’s comfort zone, though a partnership with producer John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer) led to a high level of production not yet heard on any of his albums. In 2011, Dennens Loverboy was his biggest departure to date: a danceable collection of songs influenced by the road and recorded by a studio filled with friends and imperfect takes.

Brett has always found inspiration beyond his music as well. A talented visual artist and watercolorist, hes incorporated his paintings into his shows, and into his relationship with fans. Hes climbed Everest and Kilimanjaro, guitar in hand, in support of several important non-profits, including The Impact Plan and the Love Hope Strength Foundation. And his unique taste and appreciation for food and drink is now on display through the launch of his new venture Dennen Wines. Bretts irresistible spirit runs through it all.

Andrew Belle will open the show.
