From St. Albert, Alberta.
His name can be seen on the charts next to some of the top artists in North America – and he has found a way to do it 100% independently. Dan is new(er) to the country scene, but is far from “green” in the music industry. He spent 10 years playing in the well-known Canadian indie rock band Tupelo Honey. On the advice of a couple of long time friends, Dan decided to start focusing on his new country project.
He became arguably the indie story of 2016 as his single “Found” rocketed up the charts and he became the #1 charting indie artist in Canada. “Found” was the #1 selling Canadian country song in Canada for several weeks in July and August 2016. It had also #16 on the charts and was the 8th highest charting Canadian song in the country. On just his second release ever in country music – he has a GOLD single. The following singles “Barn Burner”, “Say We Did”, and “Lets Go There” helped further his momentum with more top 20 recognition and solidified his name as an artist on the rise.
He released his first EP “Songs for Georgia” in 2017. Dan’s new EP “Juliet” came out Feb 21, 2019 and debuted at #1 on the Canadian iTunes Country charts.
With 3 CCMA nominations, 10 ACMA awards, a gold record, a number 1 selling Canadian song, top 20 charting numbers and over 100 performances this year –he is definitely someone to watch.
