Dan wrote "Gordie Down" after first hearing the news of Canadian icon Gordon Downie's diagnosis with terminal brain cancer. A lifelong fan of the Hip, GD was a major influence on this European singer-songwriter of rough-and-ready folk-pop songs.
Dan is a British-Swiss singer-songwriter who performs solo and as part of the indie folk-rock band, The Flocking Murmuration. He was also previously part of the world-pop-folk trio Tiger the Lion.

As a solo artist, Dan plays rough-and-ready modern folk-pop songs in the tradition of Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Gordon Downie, Neil Young and Johnny Cash.

On 1st January 2017, Dan set himself the challenge to write and share a song every day for the whole year. This project is called "A Song, A Day, A Year". These songs are recorded as one-shot "live" demos.

"A Song, A Day, A Year" is like a daily invitation into a songwriter's workshop.

Dan believes that music can change minds and unite. Songs can raise awareness and provide support - to individuals, organisations and issues that matter.

When you buy, stream or watch Dan's music or videos, a significant percentage of the money will go directly to an important cause linked to that song. For more information on the songs and causes, explore this site, or contact us.
