Brett Dennen Announces 3rd Annual 'Lift Series' Tour, Tickets On-Sale Now
Singer-songwriter Brett Dennen today announced his 3rd annual "Lift Series Tour," bringing a series of intimate theater shows to mountain towns across the west. An avid skier and outdoorsman, Dennen will combine both his passions as he skis the slopes by day and performs at night. Tickets are on-sale now HERE.
"Here comes another winter and I am happy to announce I'll be heading out on my 3rd annual Lift Series Tour in January. I will be playing shows and skiing in some of my favorite mountain towns in the western states," Brett Dennen shares. "This year I have chosen to focus the tour around resorts that honor the @ikonpass because I believe these resorts are providing affordable access to the absolute best skiing while maintaining and supporting the integrity of each mountain whether big or small."
In August, Brett Dennen released HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU KID, the second of his two-part collaboration with Dan Wilson (Semisonic, Adele, Dixie Chicks). "Here's Looking At You Kid" became Dennen's 2nd single to hit the top of the AAA radio charts within the past year and was the most-added song at AAA radio after taste-maker station KCRW debuted the single. The first EP in the series, LET'S... was released last February and featured the song, "Already Gone," a Buddy-Holly-meets-Violent-Femmes bop that reached #3 on the charts.

ABOUT BRETT DENNEN - For the past ten years, Brett Dennen - with his poet's perspective, off-kilter vocals, insane sense of humor, and limitless musical freedom - has turned dancing like no one's watching into a lifestyle. As a songwriter, performer, watercolor artist, and environmental conservationist and outdoorsman, the shows he performs and the events he hosts generate more than good vibes. His impact has been to gather like-minded music fans to consistently try to make the world a better place.
As a young man in Northern California, Dennen's passion for environmental conservation and his outrage at injustice led him to work as a camp counselor for at-risk youth. There, he used music as a teaching tool. Through song, he could pull different demographics of kids together, he could communicate in a different way with those who found trouble finding their own words, and obviously...guitar + bonfire = good times.
When Brett began to pursue recording and touring professionally, neither his voice nor his intentions changed. His debut album in 2007 kickstarted a career that uses every color of the musical palate. So much so, that with each song, the "musical math" to summarize his sound shifts. From Paul-Simon-meets-Bob-Marley to Violent-Femmes-meets-Buddy-Holly - it's all there over an absolutely iridescent catalogue.
As with any true artist, Brett's talent surpasses music. He is an incredible painter who focuses on watercolor, a wine lover with his own vintage, and an organizer whose annual "Lift Series" and "Vacationer Series," held in mountain ski towns and beaches, respectively, combine music with activities and conservation.
Here's Looking At You Kid was released in August 2018 as the second half of a two-part EP collaboration with Dan Wilson (Semisonic, Adele, Dixie Chicks) on Downtown Records. The first EP, entitled Let's... was released Feb. 2018 and included "Already Gone," which rose to #3 on BDS AAA and #4 on MB AAA.
