Dent May writes, performs, and produces homemade pop music from his home base in Mississippi. A stylistic chameleon, Dent's recordings echo folk, disco, R&B, psychedelia, country-western, soul, and funk sounds of the past, present, and future. Increasingly, his songwriting has taken a turn toward existential classicism, channeling the tuneful longings of Harry Nilsson and Brian Wilson at their dreamiest. Dent grew up performing in school plays and church choirs in Jackson, Mississippi, where he began writing songs and putting bands together by age 13. After dropping out of NYU film school, he moved back to Oxford, Mississippi.
