Brett Dennen: The Rhapsody Interview (Exclusive)
by Brett Dennen
Released: Apr 2007
Brett Dennen talks to fans about living a virtuous and prosperous life -- and reveals that he's finally at the point where he can do what he loves and pay the rent, which is a cause for celebration. How does this gentle, brainy folk singer celebrate? By playing a small exclusive set at Rhapsody's Austin studio. When he's finished, the singer confesses that he doesn't need a billion dollar record deal to be happy: all he needs is to believe in himself and write from the heart. Which he certainly does. He also reveals his first musical epiphany was listening to Paul Simon's Graceland while driving around in his parent's VW bus and how he worries about Joni Mitchell every time her hears one of her songs.
