What we offer

Everyone deserves great music! That is my motto. I am a professional singer-songwriter and one-man-band from the UK, now living in Switzerland, and I specialise in matching my music to the particular venue and audience.

I have made 5 CDs of my own songs, and I also play over 150 cover songs, from 1960s to 1990s to today, including rock, pop, folk, country, blues and electro songs. I thus have a very wide range of songs to select from, for your event.

In addition to singing and playing guitar, I also use a loop machine, foot tambourine and stompbox, to create a full band sound, including percussion, solos, backing vocals and bass guitar. I am thus a real one-man-band, able to play all types of events, from large festivals to small bars and restaurants, and all events in between, including weddings birthdays and company celebrations.

Radio RaBe, Bern, described my latest album Better Beats as "The best yet! Deeper, richer, elegant and easy on the ears".

Marion Rohrer, Eggenwil, wrote: "Having Dan play at my party made the evening all the more special. He created a great atmosphere and people loved him. He was also very easy going when choosing the songs together in advance and about the arrangements on site. He ended up playing outside the forest house under the sky which was amazing."

Langenthal Street Festival wrote: "Dan enriches our Street Festival every year. He is well organised, highly professional and easy to work with. He is also an appreciative musician, and a charming person."

Tony McArthur, McArthurs Pubs Thun/Lenzburg wrote: "Whenever Dan plays in either of our pubs, we know we are guaranteed a great night. He has a fantastic selection of songs which he plays brilliantly, he is very customer friendly and people love him. He creates an atmosphere which not all artists are able to do. Simply put, a 5-star review from me."

Covers I play include songs by: Johnny Cash, Oasis, Iggy Pop, Avicii, George Ezra, Bob Marley, Pink Floyd, Paolo Nutini, Mr Probz, Paul Simon, Vance Joy, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eddie Vedder, Jack Johnson, U2, Elvis and many more!
