Brett Dennen, Good Stuff

From one of our very loyal readers (who has stellar taste in music), I was recently turned on to Brett Dennen, a singer-songwriter from Oakland, Calif. I recognized one of his songs from the episode “My No Good Reason” from Scrubs (an all-time favorite of Pretzel Day), and his music has appeared in other shows like Grey’s Anatomy, The Unit, and House.

Rolling Stone in November 2007 named Dennen one of their “10 Artists to Watch” and Entertainment Weekly named him “Guy on the Rise” in 2008. But remember, you heard him here first.

His music can best be described as a cross between Joshua Radin and Jason Mraz, with whom Dennen recently finished up a tour with.

Here’s one of my favorites, Ain’t No Reason, and if you like it, I suggest you check out She’s Mine and The One Who Loves You the Most.

    He is great. Have you listened to his new album “Hope For the Hopeless?” I prefer it to his earlier stuff, although it is good also. Favorites have got to be “Make You Crazy” and “Ain’t Gonna Lose You.” Check it out if you haven’t.

    He is great, Have you heard his new album “Hope for the Hopeless?” I like it better than his earlier stuff. It’s a little more produced. Favorites have got to be “Make You Crazy,” “Ain’t Gonna Lose You,” and “When She’s Gone.” CHeck it out if you haven’t. You might like Amos Lee and Eric Hutchinson if you like him.
