Singer-songwriter DAN BERN has released 18 albums since 1997 and built a loyal following based on prodigious touring and output of songs in all forms. The LA-based songwriter is perhaps best known for his film writing. He composed scores of songs for Judd Apatow’s Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and Get Him to the Greek, Jake Kasdan’s Zero Effect, and other films. Bern wrote “Swing Set,” a duet with Emmylou Harris, for the off-Broadway production of Family Week (directed by Jonathan Demme) and wrote the title song for Demme’s documentary Jimmy Carter: Man From Plains. He has also written with Marshall Crenshaw, Peter Himmelman, and many others. A former NM resident, Bern’s album BREATHE won Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter at the Sixth Annual Independent Music Awards. His latest disc is the excellent Songs Of Fall. Bern will play second on a co-bill with Po’ Girl’s AWNA TEIXEIRA.
