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.

There he met Animal Collective while they were recording Merriweather Post Pavilion, and he's been releasing music on their Paw Tracks imprint since 2009.
