Dan Bern strums drop-dead gorgeous melodies like a demon with his tail on fire; and expresses his love for humankind through scabrous, literary, skeptical rhymes full of hyper articulation and the tormented self-knowledge of the really, really smart.
Fan Man productions proudly presents Dan Bern!
Dan Bern is best known for his prolific songwriting and electric live persona. He has released a dozen albums while spending well over a decade performing everywhere from coffee shops to Carnegie Hall. Since releasing his first album in 1997, Bern has built a strong underground following based on prodigious touring and output of songs in all forms.
Since 2007, Bern has focused much of his talent and sharp wit on writing songs for movies and other projects he composed over a dozen songs for the Jake Kasdan/Judd Apatow spoof-biopic Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and wrote the title song for Jonathan Demme’s documentary, Jimmy Carter: Man From Plains.
Bern also composed songs that will be included in the Judd Apatow film Get Him to the Greek, starring Russell Brand and Jonah Hill, due out this June. He has also contributed original songs for the off-Broadway production Family Week, directed by Jonathan Demme, including a duet with Emmylou Harris.
