Dent May is an intergalactic lounge singer, tarot-reader to the stars and singer of “future oldies”. The Mississippi born, LA based musician released his first album in 2008; charming audiences with his cheerful voice and ukelele. In the near-decade since Dent has swapped out ukelele for grander orchestrations, recorded alone in a haunted house and honed his winsome persona. His latest release Across the Multiverse showcases Dent’s trademark ability to make glum songs sound happy. Tracks like “Hello, Cruel World” use breezy, indie melodies to explore a growing misery. We were lucky enough to host Dent in Studio 1A ahead of his release show at Mohawk. Check out the full session below!
