w/ "Home Base" singer-songwriter Jeb Havens
In the first-ever Dennis Anyone CD listening party, Dennis sits down with singer-songwriter Jeb Havens on the eve of the release of his album "Home Base," which hits iTunes on February 17th. Jeb discusses the inspiration for the songs, working with producer Andy Zulla ("Smash") by sending tracks back and forth digitally but never meeting in person and his hopes for the records. He also shares his earliest musical memories, the worse thing that's ever gone wrong for him on stage, his reluctance to chase fame and the camaraderie he feels with fellow out artists like Tom Goss, Michael Powers and Matt Zarley. Other topics include Jeb's day job at YouTube, designing board and video games, moving to LA from San Francisco, being a mathlete in high school, falling in love and planning an around-the-world trip with his boyfriend and the pressure to wear a different tank top for each of his "Closet Cover" YouTube covers.
