If you haven’t heard of Dan Bern you obviously haven’t spoken with me about music at any length. I guess you could call him a folk singer. I just call him good.
For a good taste of what he brings to the table, check out his MySpace and listen to what’s there. Great sample of his work, handpicked by Dan Bern himself. And the songs change every now and then so keep going back for more. If you notice him coming to your town on his tour list there, go see him. You will not regret it.
Then go to the store and buy all of his albums. Fifty Eggs is probably his best (produced by Ani DiFranco), but you can’t go wrong with any of his albums.
Go now and enjoy.
UPDATE: You can also hear two Dan Bern songs in the podcast of the March 5th episode of Under The Covers. Woo!
