"It's a HIT! A sure HIT!" This was Grammy Nominee, Singer/Songwriter Leslie Satcher's response after hearing Dan perform his song "Winner".

At age fourteen Dan was given his fist guitar and soon learned that writing his own songs was easier than trying to learn other people songs. Dan figured he was probably just lazy, not wanting to put the work into learning, but the songs just kept coming, so he kept writing.

Although Dan has written and worked on hundreds of songs only about seventy of those have made the cut for his present play list. Dan's performances usually include three 45-50 minute sets of all original music. To this date, due to his strict artistic ethic, Dan has yet to perform a cover song live(or it could be that "too lazy" thing again).

Dan has performed around Charleston, South Carolina over the past few years. Venues include, Millennium Music, The Mellow Mushroom, The Windjammer, Lite Affair, Moose Mountain Coffee, The Lager Head Tavern, to name a few.

As for recording, due to "budget limitations" all current recordings have been done in fairly small low tech studios, or in his living room. Even so, Dan has managed to produce two demo Cd's used mainly for booking gigs, although some copies have been sold.
