Dan Bern’s highly anticipated new album “Regent Street” comes out September 13th. A stunning collection of songs that reach new artistic heights, “Regent Street” is a stand-out in Bern’s impressive discography. The release tour kicks off this fall in Colorado with surprises and special guests all along the way.

 

Praise for Regent Street—

“Regent Street is poised to be the icing on the cake of Bern’s extensive discography with its sheer energy and jubilation” — Americana Highways

“Regent Street is an artistic triumph.” — Staccatofy

“Vital, the real thing, hit it out of the park, a masterpiece.” — Kevin Hayes, Old Crow Medicine Show

“Dan Bern is at the top of his game with Regent Street. Adventurous, undeniable, alive, and one of Bern’s best records. I was blown away by all of it.” — Steve Almond, author and social critic, Candyfreak and the “Dear Sugar” podcast with Cheryl Strayed

“Fabulous record . . . moving and fun and wild.” — Chuck Plotkin, Bruce Springsteen record producer

 

While Bern may be best-known for his masterpieces “Jerusalem,” “Marilyn,” and “Tiger Woods,” he has released 25 albums and EPs, and played thousands of shows across North America and Europe.  He is a captivating live performer with a loyal, multi-generational following. Ani DiFranco, an early supporter of Bern’s, took him on tour with her and produced his second album, Fifty Eggs. Bern’s songs have appeared in numerous films and TV shows, and he has written original songs for the films Walk Hard — The Dewey Cox Story and Get Him to the Greek, as well as the 15-song soundtrack for Everett Ruess, Wilderness Song, a documentary produced by Jonathan Demme.

A visual artist, in 2019 Bern had gallery showings of his paintings in Islamorada, Florida; New York City, and San Francisco. These shows also combined live musical performances. Bern is the author of several books, including his latest, Encounters, a collection of poetry based on Bern’s chance meetings of such figures as Jimmy Carter, Bruce Springsteen, Hunter S. Thompson and Wilt Chamberlin. Bern hosts a podcast — 10,000 Crappy Songs — a radio drama of a songwriter-turned-detective. He also runs the 24/7 internet radio station, Radio Free Bernsteinn.

  • Dan Bern

    Country

    With the release of his 1997 self-titled debut, Iowa native Dan Bern became the latest, following the likes of John Prine, Elliott Murphy, Steve Forbert, Loudon Wainwright III, and numerous others, to wear the "new Dylan" mantle.With an acoustic guitar, a batch of sharp, witty, insightful songs, and a delivery reminiscent of the man himself, Bern left his home in the Midwest for L.A., where he assaulted the local folk scene. He subsequently made his way to various clubs and festivals nationwide, where he garnered a great deal of notice and eventually caught the attention of Sony Records' Work Group subsidiary, with whom he inked a deal. Later in 1997, Work made available Dog Boy Van, his excellent 1996 indie release that was recorded prior to his signing with the label. The proper follow-up to Dan Bern, Fifty Eggs (produced by Ani DiFranco), was issued in March 1998 while the independent two-CD set Smartie Mine came out later the same year. No longer a resident of the Midwest, Bern settled in New Mexico in early 2002. Fleeting Days appeared the next spring. In 2004, Bern released the politically charged EP My Country II. It was followed in 2006 by the full-length Breathe. ~ Brett Hartenbach
