Brett Dennen


Betsy has done it again....she has introduced me to another great artist...Brett Dennen. A singer/songwriter from good ole' Californ-I-A. This kid has an amazing voice, his musical skills are off the wall! I only just discovered his music tonight, but it is right up my alley, he reminds me of Ben Taylor meets, Jason Marz, meets Trevor Hall -- some REALLY awesome sounds. This music is pure, and the lyrics are full of meaning -- most of the songs that I have listened to tonight hit close to home. The guitar playing is soft and easy to listen to....calming.

"Nothing Last Forever"

I saw you spiraling
I saw you spinning back in time
through all your memories
such a quiet disease
you had forgotten me
but I'll always remember you dancing
across the kitchen in your orange handkerchief
such a quiet disease

I pray that when you dream you would remember everything
you know it all comes back to you
in one conscience dream
maybe you'd sing and put words to all the things
that you think of in a day
but forgotten how to say

nothing last forever
not even the mountains
someday they will be swept away and swallowed by the sea
we all shall be blessedly released

life is so precious it's as fragile as a dream
and in a moment we all grow our wings
I wish to sing as if no ones listening
I wish to dance as if no one is watching
I wish to dance as if no one is watching
and I, give thanks for my dreams
you can rob me of my sight
and you can poison my blood stream
but as long as I can dream then life is worth living

nothing last forever
not even the mountains
someday they will be swept away and swallowed by the sea
we all shall be blessedly released

nothing last forever
not even the sun
for all we know it could have burned out light years ago
darkness remains the hardest thing for us to outrun


I highly suggest next time you are looking for some good slow listening to keep Brett Dennen in mind! Great, great, great music!

Much love!
