Episode 3 – Gann Brewer

Hello ladies and gentleman, and welcome to our podcast page. Our current episode, #3, features Gann Brewer, a folk singer we met in NYC around Christmas time while enjoying the yearly visit from our good friend and impresario Rox Sirand. Gann does a line-up of folk traditionals along with a set of lyrically impressive originals that draw on deep American musical and story-telling traditions. We’re indebted to Gann for helping us get back to our original vision for the podcast, which was something along the lines of Americana merged with Steam Punk and Slam poetry, with a dose of Garrison Keillor in there somewhere. We’re still trying to pull it off, and hope to bring you more unique musical artists in the near future. Please stay tuned!

From Gann’s Website:

Gann Brewer has been traveling the world since he graduated from college, playing tunes by John Prine, Woody Guthrie and sharing the songs he learned from Ramblin’ Jack records on every street corner he could. He has paid some serious “Buskin” dues on the sidewalks and coffeeshops of Israel, New Zealand, Vietnam, Ireland, Holland and more, as well as the bungalows and pirate bars of the Virgin Islands and Thailand. He lives the life of a troubadour, with a vocal style that reminds fans of early Todd Snider or a sober Townes Van Zandt, but yet uniquely his own.”
