I am a guitarist, singer, and songwriter who proudly hails from Surrey, BC, Canada. I play, sing, and write compelling music in the blues, rock, folk, and pop vein. I love grooves and a range of topics in my lyrical repetoire. I play both electric and acoustic guitar in equal measure.
I hope that you find that I am a solid guitarist who has managed to create a rhythm style that is unique in well-well worn tradition. Surprinsingly though, I am finding out these days that I am becoming more well known for my voice. If you had asked me ten years ago if I would ever be known as a compelling singer, I would have laughed at you, and out of key! My voice is getting stronger and mature, and I can sometimes deliver moments of intense vulerability.
My music centers around the intention of honesty and passion. These are not just flat words on a page – I really live what I am doing. I think that when you hear me, you will understand. I carefully pick cover songs that speak directly to me, and I am sure that at least some of my originals will speak to you.
Although I definitely have a style I work within, I do try to push my own personal boundaries from within it. Proof is in the lazy jazzy ballad “Love’s Sanatorium”, to the latinesque yearing of “Don’t Go”, to the gut wrenching jail cell confession of the minor blues “The Lines On Your Face”. Pure euphoria reigns in “Come and Play With Me” and “Jade”, as well as the quirky quacking tale of “The Vodka Duck”.
Digger Dan is in the pre-production phase of his first album. More details to come.
