Brett Dennen's back!

I was fortunate enough to catch Brett Dennen play early last year, and since then I've been looking forward to a new album from him. Well, my wait is finally over, as Hope For the Hopeless hits the shelves on the 21st. I haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but I have gotten hold of the first single from the album, Make You Crazy, which features Femi Kuti, and which you can listen to below!

In addition to the album excitement, Brett will be on the road for a mini-tour in November, followed by a headlining tour early next year. You'll find the November dates below. He's a great entertainer, and while I wouldn't say his live songs aren't light years better than the album versions, he does a super job connecting with his audience. Catch him if you can.
