Acclaimed singer-songwriter Dan Bern is touring the US, Canada and Europe in 2020 in support of his new release REGENT STREET. After losing two fingertips from an accident with a snowblower in March 2018, Bern found himself unable to play guitar for nearly a year. Turning to the piano, he found fresh perspective which led to ​Regent Street, a​ collection of eleven songs that reach new artistic heights. The title track and lead single was previously recorded by Roger Daltrey, a fan of Bern’s work, after Bern sent The Who singer a demo. “Regent Street” was recorded for this album in a style inspired by Daltrey’s version, and Bern considers it a cover of his own song. Passionate, energetic and poignant, ​Regent Street​ is a stand-out album in Bern’s impressive discography.

While Bern may be best-known for his masterpieces “Jerusalem,” “Marilyn,” and “Tiger Woods,” he has released 25 albums and EPs, and played thousands of shows across North America and Europe. He is a captivating live performer with a loyal, multi-generational following. Ani DiFranco, an early supporter of Bern’s, took him on tour with her and produced his second album, ​Fifty Eggs​. Bern’s songs have appeared in numerous films and TV shows, and he has written original songs for the films ​Walk Hard — The Dewey Cox Story​ and ​Get Him to the Greek​, as well as the 15-song soundtrack for ​Everett Ruess, Wilderness Song​, a documentary produced by Jonathan Demme.

A visual artist, in 2019 Bern had gallery showings of his paintings in Islamorada, Florida; New York City, and San Francisco. These shows also combined live musical performances. Bern is the author of several books, including his latest, ​Encounters,​ a collection of poetry based on Bern’s chance meetings of such figures as Jimmy Carter, Bruce Springsteen, Hunter S. Thompson and Wilt Chamberlin. Bern hosts a podcast — 10,000 Crappy Songs — a radio drama of a songwriter-turned-detective. He also runs the 24/7 internet radio station, Radio Free Bernsteinn.
