Brett Dennen


Singer/Songwriter Brett Dennen will embark on an intimate headline tour this fall in support of his anticipated new album Smoke and Mirrors. The 4-week nationwide trek kicks off October 25 at Austin’s Central Presbyterian Church and will make stops at Los Angeles’ Troubadour, Boulder’s Fox Theatre and San Francisco’s Independent, to name a few. The presale kicks off today, with tickets on sale to the general public later this week, see below for details.Set for release on October 22, Smoke and Mirrors (F-Stop/Atlantic) is a return to form for Dennen, taking him back to his roots both sonically and aesthetically yet with more confidence and maturity than ever before. Nowhere is this more evident than the album’s first single “Wild Child,” which is already the #1 added record at Triple A, despite it not being scheduled to impact until next week. Rolling Stone premiered the “joyous” single earlier this month, listen to it here.  Beginning today, Smoke and Mirrors  is available for preorder on iTunes.After the overwhelming success of Loverboy and the intense promotional tour that followed, Dennen retreated to his mountain house in Northern California and began writing Smoke and Mirrors, finding inspiration in his surroundings and the simplicity of nature. Dennen took the songs to Nashville to record with producer Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars), eschewing his L.A. comfort zone to work with virtual strangers. Peacock explains, “Brett and I spent a lot of time just building out the arrangements. From the production side, he encouraged me to make every song uniquely its own while keeping it cohesive – and I think we did it. His wonderful music aside, Brett is certainly one of the most whimsical people I’ve ever produced – a true original.” The resulting 10-song set features Dennen’s strongest and most cohesive collection to date.Smoke and Mirrors, Dennen’s fifth studio album, is the culmination of his transition from a coffeehouse folk singer to a celebrated and critically acclaimed front man. Standing 6’5 with his trademark, long, red hair, Dennen has been lauded as a break-through success, earning acclaim from Rolling Stone, NPR, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, USA Today and more, with The Washington Post declaring him “a folk rock revelation.” He has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, NPR and more.

Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen is a contemplative introvert by nature, an adventurer by soul, and the great communicator by effect. As someone whose endeavors include a mountain town ski “Lift” series advancing environmental activism in the winter, a beach “Vacationer” series supporting local environment preservation in the summer, and a venture developing wine Rosés, Dennen has found a niche way of incorporating his love of music and the outdoors into his live tours. Dennen is based in Northern California. Dean Lewis’s enigmatic debut single “Waves” has seduced music lovers across the planet – earning the Sydney-based singer-songwriter high rotation on Triple J and a place on influential digital playlists worldwide, it is now 3 times platinum in Australia, he was recently nominated for 5 ARIA Awards and has nearly 70 million streams worldwide.
