Brett Dennen ‘Let’s…’ EP Out Now
I’ve been spending a ton of time with Brett Dennen this last year, and I had the joy of producing his EP – it’s out today everywhere you find music. I co-wrote the tunes “Jenny and Jill,” “Good Vibration,” “Home Away From Home,” and the title track “Let’s…”.
I’m really proud of this project, and I’ve loved getting to know Brett so well creatively and personally. We wrote several of the songs on the record with my good friend and frequent collaborator Jenny Owen Youngs. Benjie Lysaght, Aaron Sterling, Wendy Wang, Brett, and I were the band for the sessions. What a great team, and I’m excited for you all to hear the fruits of our labor. Take a listen!

“What a Year For a New Year” – Song Re-Release
Friends – back in 2002, I released a song called “What a Year For a New Year” on a compilation benefit CD that has since been discontinued. Now, because so many of you have asked about it, I’m re-releasing that same recording. I drew some new artwork to go with it too – a sunrise, a fresh start, a new day on the darkest day of the year. I hope you dig it too. You can listen to it now anywhere you find your music online (iTunes, Spotify, etc).
Very best wishes to you and yours in the New Year! Here’s hoping for a great 2018, and here’s to us doing everything we can to make it great.
