The music of folk-pop singer songwriter Brett Dennen “urges maturing rock fans to turn up their radios and stay forever young,” says Rolling Stone.com. Brett joins us touring behind his intimate and revealing new album, Por Favor, released by Elektra Records and produced by Dave Cobb, fresh from his Grammy winning work with Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell.
With music that strips Dennen to his core as a songwriter with nothing to hide, his sixth studio album—more than a decade after his self-titled debut catapulted him to stardom—dives deep into loneliness, loss, and love and all its side effects. It’s the sound of an artist working through his insecurities in song, and thereby letting go of them. But it is by no means a sad affair, nor is it the “rainyday record” Dennen initially thought he was making. Often framed by uplifting choruses and bright acoustic arrangements, these songs brim with optimism and the palpable sense that the tide is turning.
