The Brooklyn Paper
If you were wondering who that musician was at Carroll Gardens’ Whim restaurant on a recent evening, bearing his soul with heartbreaking songs about love won and lost - and love that just won’t take him back, damn it - he was singer-songwriter Todd Deatherage.

And if he was able to distract from chef Marc Elliot’s tasty wares, imagine how powerful Deatherage’s brew of country heartache, jazz and rock will be with his band behind him at Pete’s Candystore (709 Lorimer St. at Richardson Street in Williamsburg) on Sept. 6 at 9 pm.

Just the title of Deatherage’s debut album "Dream Upon a Fallen Star" (Summerbreak Records) gives you a taste of his artful but gloomy lyrics. For more information about Deatherage, visit For info on the free show at Pete’s, call (718) 302-3770.
