Dan Bern
Dan Bern
You'd be hard pressed to find anyone more prolific than Dan Bern. Bern is a consummate generalist, logging time as a singer songwriter, guitarist, novelist, and painter. His output includes twenty albums with three released in 2012 alone. His writing has drawn comparisons to the likes of Bob Dylan, and Woody Guthrie. Bern's work in all of his fields showcases a biting wit and a sardonic sense of the world; tackling a variety of topics, and eloquently skirting faux pas from the religious to the the explicitly political "Bush Must Be Defeated." He even pokes fun at his own influences with the "Talkin Woody, Bob, Bruce, And Dan Blues."

His sense of humor has gotten him work in film as well, penning sixteen songs for the spoof bio pic "Walk Hard," and Get Him To The Greek." As a Novelist, he has produced "Quitting Science" under the pen name Cunliffe Merriwether, and a number of short stories. To toss the term Renaissance man around might be appropriate when you're dealing with an artist as multi faceted as Dan Bern.

Garrin Benfield recently released his fifth album, The Wave Organ Song, which he calls a “chillingly intimate emotional travelogue.” The website jambase describes him as “a killer improviser” and “one of the best singer-songwriters to emerge from the Bay Area in recent years. He’s also a wicked guitarist and an awful nice human being.” Garrin has worked with such musicians as Boz Scaggs, Dan Bern, David Gans, and the group Friends of the Devil. In his live shows, he uses a loop station to add layers of beats and bass lines to his searing lead guitar and compelling vocals.
