Dan Bern

  • Naked Soul at The Rubin Museum 150 West 17th Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

A remarkably prolific songwriter, Dan Bern has released around two dozen studio albums, EPs, and live recordings since his first acclaimed Sony-distributed CD in 1997. Either fronting the prodigiously talented band Common Rotation or as a solo performer, he is comfortable and convincing, funny and topical, with an unassuming tip of the hat to Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, and Bob Dylan, all while sounding thoroughly original and contemporary. Whether writing about stepping back and appreciating the world around us (“Breathe”) or celebrating the venerable voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers (“The Golden Voice of Vin Scully”), Dan’s songs are always literary, sometimes funny, and often cinematic. And it’s not uncommon at a Dan Bern concert to see and hear fans unabashedly singing along to one song after another with no prompting from the stage.
