I’ve recently got back from an inspiring summer in the US where I was lucky enough to attend some great music workshops and concerts featuring artists like Janis Ian, Tom Paxton, Jon Vezna, Kathy Matthea and Tift Merritt, amongst a whole bunch of amazing people.

In the meantime, since I’ve been away, the reviews of the new album have been slowly rolling in and I found out, too, that  ‘Midnight and the Wine,’ from the new record, was heralded as “superb” and added to Huey Morgan’s BBC Radio 2 Playlist for August.

Also just in are 2 print reviews from Americana UK (4/5) and Maverick Magazine (3 *):

“Very impressive. Dan is one to watch and I certainly will.”

(Nick Jarman – Americana UK)

“One of the more interesting and entertaining songwriters we have on our shores these days”

(Paul Kerr – Maverick Magazine)

Maverick is available in the shops today. The Americana UK review is copied below.

Big thanks to everybody that has spun the record, been in touch to say they’ve enjoyed it and continue to come out for shows. I have a little run of London gigs coming up next month. Be great to see friends there. I’ll be joined for at least one date by my wonderful pal and collaborator, Maria Rivington, and there may be some other special guests, too.
