Hope for the Hopeless

There’s something about Brett Dennen’s voice, and I like it – a lot. He looks like a little kid, but his voice has age in it. He also has a message, anti-war peaceful folk-rock is perfect for his voice. This, his third album has a bit less hook than his last for better or worse, sometimes the former – sometimes the latter. It’s no matter, this guy is building a catalog of songs to which I keep returning to listen. He’s toured with John Mayer, Colbie Calliat, Rodrigo y Gabriella, Guster, Meiko, Joshua James, and Ziggy Marley and keeps plugging away. His songs have been featured in commercials for Hilton Hotels and recently on Grey’s Anatomy (Ain’t Gonna Lose You). Here are a few from the newest and one from his first. Desert Sunrise might be my favorite song of his, it has that lovely feel that you can only get int he desert.

  1. How funny! I saw this guy in a vodeo on VH1 last week and just assumed it was an actor lip synching the words. I can’t believe this is the actual guy! He’s really good though, I was very impressed… just can’t believe that was for real!
