Singer-songwriter DAN PARSONS sings of the triumphs and anxieties of the human experience. Playing solo or with his band, his rich baritone voice and deft guitar style never fail to enthral audiences of all ages, conjuring up a 1970’s West Coast landscape for the iPhone generation. His songs put you in the room with him, as tangled up thoughts find sequence and purpose flame-like, darting from wall to wall to trace a geometry of intense conviction.
As an only child growing up in rural Queensland with a clutch of instruments, ideas and a reel to reel 4-track, he was afforded the time and space necessary to hone his skills as a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer.
He has released and toured three critically acclaimed solo albums (2010 Firestarter, which took him to Los Angeles where he showcased at Musexpo, UK’s Great Escape Festival and Liverpool Sound City; 2013 Dan Parsons self-titled; and 2015 Valleywood which received a nominated for ‘Best Folk-Roots Album’ in the Age Music Victoria Awards and also took him to Nashville, Tennessee to play the Bluebird Café and perform at AmericanaFest).
