Biography

“My brain is cloudy, my soul is upside-down… When I get that low-down feeling, I know the blues must be someplace around.”
(Bob Wills – the King of Western Swing)

Born in 2010, the Brain Cloud is the brain-child of multi-instrumentalist Dennis Lichtman. The band’s self-titled 2011 debut album captures their remarkable sound – from the inimitable vocal stylings of Tamar Korn to Lichtman’s fresh arrangements, with plenty of hot picking and hard swinging from the entire sextet.

Dennis Lichtman is a man of many musical minds, jumping genres and instruments incessantly, sometimes within one show, or even within one song. He is equally at home on mandolin, fiddle, and clarinet. He has toured the world as a traditional-jazz clarinetist, graced many a bluegrass festival stage as a fiddler, and devoted much time to the study of early 20th century Brazilian mandolin music. It’s enough to cloud anyone’s brain. Along the way, he has performed and recorded with top masters in each of those genres. He is in constant demand as a session musician, arranger, and sideman in New York’s hopping music scene.

In early 2010, Lichtman joined forces with Tamar Korn, whom he had known for two years as bandmates in the old-timey jazz outfit the Cangelosi Cards. This new band’s purpose was to delve into a side of American music for which Lichtman and Korn shared a fondness, but had not fully explored in the horn-heavy Cangelosi Cards.
