Brian Dewan Tells the Story

Tells the Story

You've seen him on tour with They Might Be Giants, here's his CD. Dewan is the voice of an America seldom explored. Dewan weighs in mightily with this awe-inspiring compendium of original, electrically charged folk tunes and cranky Yankee tales. Already a favorite of BBC taste-maker John Peel, Dewan performs on his self-made hand-tooled electric zither, an instrument that appears like an over-sized autoharp without the felt dampeners. But this classically trained 27-year-old sounds like Jimi Hendrix on smart drugs.
