Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen is a contemplative introvert, an adventurer, a communicator, a preservationist, a painter, and one of today’s most essential and unconventional vocalists and performers. His critically-acclaimed work encapsulates a lifestyle that has attracted a loyal following of like-minded fans. He has incorporated his love of music, the outdoors, and wine into his live tours – not only has he embarked on a venture developing wine, Dennen annually hosts a mountain town ski Lift Series in the winter that combines music, travel, and environmental activism. In the summer, his beach Vacationer Series supports local environmental preservation. Dennen lives in Northern California and travels extensively, from camping trips along the Sierra Nevada mountain range to climbing Everest and Kilimanjaro.
Growing up in Jackson, Tennessee, Erin Rae got an early introduction to folk music at home. Her mom and dad were both part-time musicians, playing their own brand of American roots music at churches, county fairs and coffee shops in west Tennessee. Starting as early as five years old, she would join them for a song or two.
Two decades later, she's still spending her time onstage — this time as the main act. Erin and company released her full-length debut, Soon Enough, independently in the US in September 2015, receiving glowing support from long-time tastemakers at NPR music (All Songs Considered + year’s end “Songs We Love” list), Rolling Stone, The Fader, and more. The success of her independent release in the US lead Clubhouse Records UK to pick up and release Soon Enough across the pond in June 2016. With continued support from NPR, BBC, countless music bloggers, and support from fellows in the Nashville community like Margo Price, what might have been a blip on the indie radar has proved to be a career shaping record with life left in it, even a year later.
With two UK tours under her belt, and another single released last fall (Playing Old Games feat. Pete Lindberg), Erin Rae is kicking off 2018 in a big way. She recently partnered with Single Lock Records to release her forthcoming full-length album, Putting On Airs. Recorded at the Refuge, a beautiful, historic Franciscan monastery-turned-creative space on Wisconsin’s Fox River, the record is set to be released on June 8, continuing the tradition of songwriting by Erin Rae that is deeply personal, and universally relatable.
