Bryan Dunn's gutsy roots rock sounds like your favorite faded denim: intimate, classic, love-worn & real. Combining the addictive hooks of the British Invasion, the storied swagger of Austin, Texas, & the plaintive soul of his Irish ancestry, Dunn's songs are instant earworms. His deft wordplay rewards multiple listens & his exuberant live shows compel even cooler-than-thou Brooklyn to let loose & dance like there's no tomorrow.
A fixture on the New York indie scene since 2006, when he placed second in Jezebel Music's Williamsburg Live Singer/Songwriter Contest, Bryan Dunn wins over fellow musicians & fans alike with his blistering sets & generous spirit. His new record "Sweetheart of the Music Hall," produced by Chris Cubeta of Galuminum Foil Studios, is his greatest outing yet. Featuring a number of sweethearts of downtown's beloved Rockwood Music Hall, the album bursts with local talent. Look for it in 2012.
