“Hope for the Hopeless” is not just a name of one of Brett Dennen’s Albums, but it has always been a message from this Loverboy to the whole world.
Brett was born October 28, 1979. A 33 year old musician with an extra-ordinary vision, Brett has recorded four studio albums. Each album was better than the other lyrically or musically. Brett is from northern California, his music is influenced by folk music.
Brett tends to have very meaningful lyrics in most of his songs and it is what makes his music special; songs such as “Ain’t No Reason” or “Make You Crazy” from the albums “So Much More” and “Hope For The Hopeless,” respectively, both raise awareness of two different issues faced by a society that is too blind to see it, though Brett is smart enough to make them hear it instead.
The successful track “Ain’t No Reason” features a very important issue that most of us forgot about, which is “others.” People love themselves, forgetting about others. In the official music video of this song , It visualizes how we simply are not able to see but able to forget other’s suffering only because we have what we need. But at least Brett did not forget and he sure helped the world remember with this song.
As for the song “Make you Crazy:” forget how musically groovy it is, its story and meanings will sure make you crazy. Brett sings about how this generation is locked up in its own prison and how freedom is no longer seen by the people, whether the reason is being stuck in an office or working as a slave for an evil boss. It sure makes Brett, and whoever opens their eyes, mad.
In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Brett sings a song called “Heaven” and talks about how people from different religions look forward to the after life. But Brett’s opinion, if one is looking to the after life, is to have a better condition to live in than the one they have on Earth. Then, why won’t they try and create these better conditions in this world that we live in.
There are more than 50 tracks for Brett Dennen, an article like this won’t be enough to explain enough about how much love this artist and his music has for the world, so much love that has changed the point of view of life for many.
One of the most common things to talk about when mentioning Brett is how his voice and how his looks don’t match, as weird as it sounds. Try to listen to Brett before seeing one of his pictures. His unique voice will never give you a hint that he looks like a 16 year old boy; for Brett, if you have so much love there is no reason to grow old.
One would hope that Brett continues his message through his music and inspire others to continue find hope for the hopeless.
