Dan Bern is best known for his prolific songwriting and magical stage presence. He has released some dozen albums since 1997, while performing everywhere from small clubs to Carnegie Hall.
“If you do have to try and squeeze Dan Bern into a box, Live in Los Angeles suggests that the best type would be one with a mic, a stage, and a crowd willing to be taken on a beautiful, and often unusual, ride.”

Recently, Bern has focused much of his talent and sharp wit on writing songs for movies and other projects. He composed over a dozen songs for the Jake Kasdan/Judd Apatow spoof Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, starring John C. Reilly, and contributed several more songs to Apatow’s Get Him to the Greek, starring Russell Brand and Jonah Hill. He wrote the title song for Jonathan Demme’s 2008 documentary, Jimmy Carter: Man From Plains, and also contributed original songs for Demme’s 2010 off-Broadway production of Family Week, which included a Bern duet with Emmylou Harris.
