Brett Rosenberg is a killer twang guitar player who crafts brutally frank pop tunes with infectious hooks. He shares with Loudon Wainwright III a penchant for songs that are both hilarious and sad. He shares with Neil Young an urge to defy expectations and never do the same thing twice. The result: Engaging live sets that often rely on just Brett and his guitar when he's not backed by his ragged Nashville band The Joiners.

Mix Bob Dylan's folk roots and Hebrew countenance with Randy Newman's dark wit and you get singer-songwriter Brett Rosenberg. An in-demand sideman for his spirited guitar work, Rosenberg's no slouch as a lyricist or frontman either, as evidenced by his new release Born Twice. --Jack Silverman, Nashville Scene, October 2008
