Q&A, with Dan (singer/songwriter)Define your genre in five words or less:
Contemporary singer songwriter.How long have you been writing and playing music? Was there a song or moment that first inspired you?
I have been playing music since I was 10 and starting writing songs at around the age of 21.I think it was too many uninspiring cover gigs that led to me wanting to perform my own songs.What are your favourite venues?
Memo Music Hall The Caravan Club The Bella Union Ormond Hall Any country hallWhat is your most memorable gig (playing or watching)?
My most memorable gig would have to be opening for Jebediah at a big country gig years ago when I was in my 20's. It was the first time I'd played on a big stage through a big PA. It was also the first time I'd watched a rock band from side of stage and it blew my mind.Where do you usually draw inspiration from as a writer? Do you have a process? eg music first, lyrics first etc
My inspiration for lyrics always comes from the music itself. I start with a chord progression and let it dictate the mood of the song. I don't know how it happens but it does!
