Brett Dennen Announces Hope For The Hopeless Tour

With a Top Ten album debut, a Top Ten radio single and a run of sold-out club shows, singer/songwriter Brett Dennen announces plans for a Hope For The Hopeless headlining tour that will stretch from January into the spring (see dates below). The tour will hit major venues across the country including two nights in Brett's hometown of San Francisco (The Fillmore) and two nights in his adopted hometown of Los Angeles (House of Blues LA). Tickets go on sale Saturday, November 22.

Brett Dennen's Hope For The Hopeless debuted as the #4 Independent Album, the #6 Digital Album and entered at #41 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. The first single, "Make You Crazy," is a Top Ten hit at tastemaker AAA stations across the country and features Nigerian Afro-beat legend, Femi Kuti.

Brett will perform "Make You Crazy" on "Good Morning America Weekend" November 15. The video for the song co-starring actress and fan Mandy Moore is featured on AOL Music sites and can be seen across the web.

Rolling Stone named Dennen one of their "Artists to Watch in 2008" and said "his third disc suggests he may soon give Dave Matthews a run for his tour grosses." John Mayer, Michael Franti and Jason Mraz are outspoken advocates for Brett. His songs have been featured in episodes of "Grey's Anatomy," "Scrubs" and "House" among others. NPR, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, and TheWashington Post are among the publications that have spotlighted his narrative-rich lyrics and distinctive voice.
