California Singer-Songwriter Brett Dennen Comes Out Of His Shell
Northern California singer and guitarist Brett Dennen made a nice impression on the Marina Stage crowd at the XPoNential Music Festival this past summer.

But he didn't come out of nowhere; the redheaded songwriter from Oakdale has been an active musician for nearly a decade, releasing five studio albums including the new Smoke and Mirrors, which came out on Tuesday via Atlantic Records. The album has been praised for it's back-to-the-basics sound and soul-searching lyrics, which you can hear in action when Dennen plays Free at Noon on November 1st.


Recent Release: Smoke and Mirrors
Release Date: October 22, 2013
Label: ATLANTIC / ADA


Made possible by support from XPN Members, and Comcast.

Touring with the likes of Corinne Bailey Rae, Sheryl Crow, and John Mayer, Brett Dennen has come a long way from his days convincing venue owners to let him play despite his inexperience. His magical lo-fi sound has been recognized by NPR and Rolling Stone and will be dazzling audiences at this year’s festival.
