Dan Bern Dan Bern is
Dan Bern is a prolific songwriter and captivating performer with a loyal, multi-generational following in many countries. A mishap with a snowblower in March 2018 cost Bern two of his fingertips. Unable to play guitar for the better part of a year, he turned to the piano, finding fresh inspiration and perspective. This discovery led to Regent Street, a collection of 11 songs that plumb new musical and artistic depths for Bern. The title track, “Regent Street,” was recorded by none other than Roger Daltrey, a fan of Bern’s. Bern sent him a demo of the song in 2017, and was thrilled to soon hear a recorded version of Daltrey doing the song, with his own Cajun band. Upon hearing Daltrey’s version, Bern was inspired to record it in the same style for his new record. Bern considers this recording of “Regent Street” to be a cover of his own song.
