About Dan


Dan is a singer-songwriter  born and raised in Plymouth, and now based in Maidenhead, operating mainly in the Berkshire/Buckinghamshire region. After (rather inexplicably) choosing to study Drama at school, he picked up a guitar in his late teens and began the laborious process of learning to make pleasant noises with it. His surprising vocal range and power are backed up with punchy and energetic acoustic guitar work, and he's recently added ukulele-driven tracks to his set. He's also been working a lot with his loopstation, a versatile but tricky gadget allowing him to create multi-layered tracks on the fly, giving him the kind of big sound you'd normally only get with a full band of musically-inclined miscreants.

With plenty of gigging experience under his belt, Dan has made a name for himself on the Plymouth pub and club circuit, entertaining crowds with a highly varied set of rock, pop and indie covers. He's currently working on original material, with a view to releasing his first solo EP: the initial step in his cunning plan for world domination.

As well as playing public venues, Dan is also available for private parties and weddings: he has all his own gear, and if you ask really nicely he'll even wear a suit.

In his spare time, Dan is an all-purpose nerd with a fondness for baked goods. Especially snickerdoodles. He has a great recipe that he'll totally share if you're interested.

He also thinks you look pretty fantastic today. Did you do something with your hair?
