Dan's been playing, performing and recording music since the mid-1980s. In his younger days he warmed up for Tracy Chapman on the college folk curcuit in Boston. Dan played solo acoustic and in a country/rockabilly two man band (with Graham Cassano, currently of Blue Pontiac) at coffeehouses and bars around the Boston area. He also sang and strummed in a couple of bands - including an uncharacteristically rowdy and punk influenced Grateful Dead cover band - in college. Dan spent some time in Malibu, California recording his first EP with ex-punk rockers Geza X and Paul Roessler. Dan's most recent EP was recorded in Los Angeles (2016) at Kitten Robot Studios. Dan's primary life gig inclues teaching history and coaching soccer at a super cool high school near Dartmouth College.
