Dan Bern

With the release of his 1997 self-titled debut, Iowa native Dan Bern became the latest, following the likes of John Prine, Elliott Murphy, Steve Forbert, Loudon Wainwright III, and numerous others, to wear the "new Dylan" mantle. With an acoustic guitar, a batch of sharp, witty, insightful songs, and a delivery reminiscent of the man himself, Bern left his home in the Midwest for L.A., where he assaulted the local folk scene. He subsequently made his way to various clubs and festivals nationwide, where he garnered a great deal of notice and eventually caught the attention of Sony Records' Work Group subsidiary, with whom he inked a deal. Later in 1997, Work made available Dog Boy Van, his excellent 1996 indie release that was recorded prior to his signing with the label. The proper follow-up to Dan Bern, Fifty Eggs (produced by Ani DiFranco), was issued in March 1998 while the independent two-CD set Smartie Mine came out later the same year. No longer a resident of the Midwest, Bern settled in New Mexico in early 2002. Fleeting Days appeared the next spring. In 2004, Bern released the politically charged EP My Country II. It was followed in 2006 by the full-length Breathe. ~ Brett Hartenbach, Rovi

loved Estelle when I heard it on the actual radio - but you're right - other than chorus and words it is Brownsville girls - still like it but not as much

Hey Dan! Artists like you are why Pandora needs to allow users to give more than just one thumbs up. I hear you graced the Maypole this year. Sorry I missed it! Maybe next year?

I love Dan Bern. Amazing lyrics and relatable insanity.
Song Estelle is the tune and phrasing of Dylan's Brownsville Girl
Have always loved you Dan Bern! Come back to Philly soon!
great songmaker.ma k e s me forget the derivative voice.and sometimes i get the chills
Why is the "dirty" necessary, Michael Crider? You don't know the man.

Love the lyrics, love the tunes. Dan Bern, thanks for the words. Come to Milwaukee again soon, that violin by Paul Finger was incredibly beautiful last time you were here!
Judging by this song I agree with aggie20x (except for the dirty hippie part!) It is rather derivative and unoriginal. Sounds just like Tom Petty, who in turn sounds like Dylan.
Dan Bern is one of a handful of aritsts that I listen to on a regular basis. I am overpowered by "Breathe" every time I hear it. The song - haunting & inspirationa l - resonates within me like a mantra.
