Dan Hartland's brand of singer-songwriter rootsiness reinvigorates the lonesome troubadour shtick with a wry pop sensibility. From gentle acoustic picking to the robust influences of early rock'n'roll, Dan's observational, confessional style offers a potent mix of intelligence and soul.
Having supported the likes of Joan as Policewoman, Clem Snide, Foy Vance, Mark Morris and Polly Paulusa amongst others, Dan is a dynamic and engaging stage presence. His new album, Young Man's Game, features eleven literate slices of rootsy, country-flecked folk. He also has to his name two further EPs of songs equal parts hushed and impassioned.
'Gets right underneath the topic he's writing about. Absolutely gorgeous. What an incredible voice' - BBC Introducing in the West
'His well crafted songs offer a fine balance between heartache and joy' - Americana UK
'Cuts right through to the listener's innermost soul' - Maverick Magazine
