Since announcing his arrival with 2001's "Tiger Pop," New York musician John Brodeur has produced a series of critically praised recordings as a solo artist and as frontman for power-pop trios The Suggestions and Maggie Mayday. Brodeur is a one-man band in the tradition of Elliott Smith, Todd Rundgren and Jon Brion, whose recordings have earned comparisons to Nada Surf, Beck and Robyn Hitchcock. His new album, "Little Hopes" (Sojourn Records), finds the restless performer tackling both matters of the heart and battles of the soul, leaping from quirky bedroom-pop to the kind of urgent guitar-rock Performing Songwriter called “power pop at its finest.” It's a confident, tuneful collection that brims with personality—the sound of an artist staying unapologetically true to his own vision. Brodeur has toured the U.S. extensively with the likes of Todd Park Mohr, Greg Laswell, Joe Pernice, and They Might Be Giants, and his music has been used on NBC, A&E, VH1 and Discovery.
