Singer-songwriter Gann Brewer carries on the tireless tradition of the  Folk Singer within the common American Man.  Gann shows a love & clear kinship for previous generations - Ramblin' Jack & Woody (are evident) John Prine, Dylan, Guy Clark, Mississippi John Hurt, Elvis, and Hank (all weigh in heavy) - though he speaks with the voice of his own voice, with his own signature humor and unpretentious honesty and experiences collected from a decade & a half on the road, ranging from the haunts of midtown Memphis & New York City to the steep streets of New Zealand, the seashore bars of Goa and the Virgin Islands, the bungalow's of Egypt and Southeast Asia, Ghost towns in Texas, historical saloons of Alaska and much more.

His performance is part anecdote, part stand-up comedy, sing-along and folk concert all in one.... each show seems to include a gruff version of a forgotten chapter in American folk history, the tall tales and legends turned song... his ability to thread these old songs and anecdotal narratives into a fun and rockin' show seems to come naturally.

Brewer is sort of in the mold of John Prine, that style between talking and singing while spinning yarns about the uncommon common folk with a wry sense of humor and great respect for real people. He is not nearly as deep down dark as Leonard Cohen, but he does slip in a line here and there that puts me in mind of the old Canadian singer/songwriter.
