With his latest single “See the World” (Mick Music) Brett Dennen is telling us to get out and see the world at a time when we need it more than ever. Flame-haired, six-foot-five, and with a singular gift for meditating on life’s most meaningful subjects with equal parts innocence and razor sharp wit, you know Dennen from his decade-plus career as a singer/songwriter. With a successful string of albums and four Top Ten AAA singles like “Make You Crazy,” “Wild Child,” and 2018’s “Already Gone,” which achieved his highest chart position yet, Dennen has cemented himself as a fixture in American folk music. What you may not know about Brett is that he did not set out to be a professional musician. It is a surprising revelation for someone who embodies the best of songwriting: singular storytelling, singability, and the unique capacity to hold up a mirror to our lives, our society, and the greater world.
Kicking off the night is New York’s Dante Palminteri. You may recognize the name Palminteri from his father – the Academy Award-nominated actor Chazz Palminteri. The singer-songwriter is adding another dimension to the family name, branching out from acting roles on Law & Order, Orange Is The New Black. He began honing his musical stylings at an early age, inspired by John Mayer’s poetic mastery of the human psyche and Ed Sheeran’s genre-defying melodies. His latest release “I Don’t Even Know You” has been making waves in the New York City music scene with its contagious melody and relatable lyrics.
